I’ve done virtually nothing since IMWI. Sure there were a couple 5k’s and short rides while pulling my kids in a trailer. But no training.
Part of the reason is that I’m not sure of my race schedule for 2013. Another part is….. lack of motivation? I’m not sure what to call it.
I’ve been working non-stop the last few months, starting a new business. It just launched at the beginning of December and if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter then you know I won’t shut up about it.
It’s taken a lot out of me to get this business going. We’re starting a big marketing campaign in January that is going to be very demanding. It will make racing and training vet difficult.
The only race I was scheduled for was NOLA 70.3, but I withdrew because of a scheduling conflict. And I did try to register for IMAZ, but like many people I wasn’t lucky enough to get in.
Part of me was relieved when registration closed. If I race the IM distance this year I would need to get a new bike. Last season I was lucky enough to demo 2 bikes from Felt. I got spoiled riding a tri-bike that was well out of my budget.
I still have my Madone, which is a great ride, but I don’t think I’d want to do an IM with it. And honestly, as I’ve been working to build my business I thought about selling it & putting the cash into the company.
I haven’t, but I’ve thought about it.
The plan for the 2013 season right now it that there’s no plan. Maybe there is an idea.
I THINK I’m going to stick to local 70.3’s (Steelhead, Racine, Muncie) and other races like LITH & Bangs Lake.
The first step is to motivate my fat ass to get moving again. The beer & wings I’ve been indulging in since IMWI has taken a toll on me, so I’ll have to play catch up.
