2017: Big Goals because Resolutions are Crap!

, , No Comments
I had a phone call with my coach, Coach P over at Endurance Nation last October and we set forth a POA to get me back on track.

Patrick is the tri-whisperer and as far as I am concerned the best there is.  He gets it on such a deep level, a psychological level not just the physical. He get how to COACH not just preach or plan.


While my goals are many for the coming year, the real achievement will not rest on a timing mat at the end of some long day of self-propelled motion. The real achievement lies in having the courage to even start.  In my discussion with Coach we discussed milestones for this first phase of the plan.

I have literally never started a year of training with such pure motivation.  I feel like having my sister-in-law, husband, and brother-in-law training for the same races it helps that my whole family gets me and I can do this without sacraficing time with them because we are in it together.

This especially rings true for time with my husband.  He is in training for a 24 hour race this June, and with my Ironman this means that we have opportunity to ride long distances together or at least during the same time so that we are maximizing our training while growing stronger and healthier together.

New Year New me?  Nope - New Year New Opportunity for Awesome!
