I know what you’re thinking.

August 11, 2011

You must be thinking that this absence must mean I’ve been training really hard this week. As much as my pride would love to let you think that, the truth is that I took some time off this week. I skipped some workouts and slept in. I went to be early. I ate out and enjoyed the company of my friends. I spent time reading my Bible and praying. I need to do this more.

Next week I start back to school for my next to last semester of classes for my certificate in graphic design and I’m taking two classes online while working full time. I’ve been training for one event or another since January and I am feeling a little burnt out. Training is usually fun for me. Not fun in there’s no pain or discomfort, but fun in that I am pushing past the limits I place on myself and seeing all the amazing things that can be done when I rely on God’s strength and not my own.

My work has gone through a time of transition this year (a major reorganization) that has particularly affected my department. I think emotionally I’m also just tired. Change, even when it has benefits in the end, is exhausting. I also feel like I’m at a crossroads in many areas of my life and am really praying about where the Lord is directing me to go from here. I want to make sure I’m not playing it safe and staying in my comfort zone and missing out on the blessings he has in store when you follow him.

The triathlon season here in NC is long- March through November. Next year I need to plan my races better, and maybe take a month or so off in the middle of the summer to rest, recover and enjoy summer.
