The last two weeks I have been working on active recovery from all of the big training I put in. Next Saturday is Vineman, my first iron-distance race. It is always weird to be resting because you are so used to working hard that you feel like crap and things get sore for no reason and your mind starts playing tricks on you. I have been doing my best to keep my mind in a good place, relax and rest when I feel tired and take good care of my body so it is ready for res day. I have a few goals for this race but mostly I am looking at it as an adventure...I signed up because I wanted to experience the distance and I am trying to keep that in mind when looking forward to next weekend. I have been making more time to do things I enjoy and allowing myself the leeway to enjoy them. My next update will be a race report about the biggest day of athletic activity I have ever had in my life.
