Till I Collapse

Till I Collapse

October 1, 2017 was my final dance with triathlon for the 2017 season.  Oh, how I miss the open water, so!  Since then, it's been all about that base.  Got me thinking...how many layers are in that base?  Reminds me of cake...like a seven layer carrot cake, but no raisins.  I don't like raisins in my carrot cake.  Each layer isn't too thick and the icing is just a thin covering between the next blanket of fluffy cake.  Mmmm.  

Um, yea so, my training focus has shifted primarily to running; swimming and the bike are my cross training.  Once again, I'm testing my body with higher mileage weeks and peppier paces.  Once again.  Once again.  Once again. 

Am I a glutton for punishment?  Why does that even have a negative connotation?  Am I setting myself up for self-destruction?  What am I doing?

Cause sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak
And when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up
But you gotta search within you
And gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you
And get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face, and collapse
— Till I Collapse, Eminem

I embark on this journey once again with more strength.  

Now, to just believe.
