Just When You Think You Can’t Take Anymore…..

03/05/09
Just when you think you can’t take any more…..you always seem to get more.

It’s the way it goes in Ironman training. I get to the brink and wonder how I am going to make it through not only the next workout, but the next step. And somehow, I always find a way.

This winter seems a little like that. We’ve gotten over 5 feet of snow this winter. In December, it was nice; it made things festive for the holidays. But starting with a storm on New Year’s Eve, we didn’t see the ground for the entire month of January. Snow storm, after snow storm, after snow storm.

Finally now in March, when I felt like I could see the light at the end of the tunnel; after I was teased with a few weeks of mild-ish weather (we’re talking high 30’s and low 40’s …..this is, after all, still New England), just when I thought I couldn’t take any more…..

DUMP!



But you know what? Just like Ironman training, you soldier on and in the end….I find I am more resilient. Hah, I say. Bring on the Compu Trainer for one more week. 15 miles on the treadmill again? Fine. Bring it. After this winter, training outside will be a breeze! So bring it on, winter.

At least someone likes the snow……
