I have a confession to make; I have had my training bag packed for the last week and I still have one week to go until fall training. It may be that I have some new clothes to wear, new shoes to break in or just that I miss spinning in circles terribly bad.
Every time I think about getting back into to training, I have the butterflies of a first date. Three months seems like a long time resting but it flew by. Work tends to make that happen but I do love the jingle in my pocket. I only went on a few hikes and only got to feel the cool Pacific a couple of times but i’m ready to get back at it.
September 30th is when I step back into ring and back into the weight room. I will have a month of conditioning to get my body ready to lift my butt “on”. Ha! Of all the years that I have “tried” to gain weight, I am serious this year. I will gain weight!!! It may take me some time to get used to eat a ton and being in the weight room a little longer but I got look on the bright side; I get to eat whatever I want.
Over the summer I have had some time to think, think about why I keep my dream alive. I could say the old clique response “Because you never stop chasing your dream” but for me the chasing is not the whole answer. Im stubborn, hard-headed and loyal to this damn ball and wire. I will not let my dream pass me by; I will sacrifice to get my dream and when I am training, their is no other place I will rather be than in the ring. Dont get me wrong, their are a few aspects of my life that I wish were “enhanced” but that will come with time and I will follow the clique quote “good things come to those who wait”. Now that I think about it, that is a pretty damn good quote and I should live/train by it more:).
Being part of Oiselle and having some of the best runners as my teammates, I got some questions for you guys;
1. Why the compression socks?
2. What do you think about when you are running mile after mile? Does it change on meet day?
3. Why does your cool down look like my sprint workout?
4. Side cramps, why and how do I get them to go away?
5. Do you ever take time off from training?
I am sure more will come to mind the further I get into training and competition season. Feel free to comment on my other pages (Twitter, Facebook or Instagram) and ask me some questions. I am sure you guys have something to ask a thrower :).
Au Revoir Summer, Bonjour Fall!
