I could waste yet another post telling you what’s not working for me right now (I’m still not caught up on everyone’s posts, have left it another month or so to blog, and my inbox is groaning – this whole zero inbox thing is so not working for me right now) BUT that’s the train of negativity which has now left my station – things are looking up:
- my career is looking up – in the course of the past 2 weeks 3 different opportunities have come my way. Interestingly, they are all things I haven’t forced into happening but which have developed more slowly and, perhaps as a result, look like they are going to be right (for now). (Does this mean I am going to have to learn to be patient rather than forcing things into existence? Is this the kind of painful insight 40 years have brought me to?) Watch this space – the reveal will come soon (when my kids are back at school and I can focus).
- That flu-thing I had last time? It knocked me out for a week but I recovered, got back into the saddle.
- the coaching? Is totally working. There is NOTHING better than being told what to do. (Am I actually saying that? Perhaps it’s only true when it comes to training). My coach scrapped all workouts in the week when I was recovering from flu. Had I not had her, I would have, no doubt, been back at it too soon. As it was, there was nothing in Training Peaks so I didn’t do anything. And recovered. And for the past 2 weeks I have been hitting it. Hard – for me. This half ironman training thing is no doozie – 8-9 hours of training a week and scanning ahead I can see 10+ hour weeks!
