In reality, those plans have been put on hold until I can straighten out this knee issue. Who knows how long it's going to take to heal. I've purposefully ignored my race schedule in the past several weeks because I don't want to be disappointed by what I'm potentially missing (i.e. racing to a sub 20 at the Fun with the Fuzz). Hence the malaise. I do so much better when I have goals! Races to shoot for. Right now I'm just adrift. Waiting to see what the next bruise fest (graston) holds for me. Holding my breath as I gingerly do my 3 minute intervals of running, praying that there is no pain in my knee which will force me to walk.
Aside from the injury though, the general thought of doing pool sets sounds boring. Sitting on a trainer - even MORE boring. Heading out to freeze my can off in the wind and rain - uninspiring. It is THIS attitude that makes me think - burnout. And then I'm thankful that I don't have a pressing 'A' race to train for! Of course... there has been talk of venturing back North for another round of IronCrew and signing up for IM Canada 2013. Maybe I'll have my mojo back by then.
So how do I get my mojo back? Well... the simply answer - I give myself time to heal and THEN see what happens. I might be back with a vengence. Ready to kill it at Padden, Clear Lake, Lake Samish, etc... Only time will tell. Until then? I'm going to rock the yoga scene and see if I can't master a few poses. Looks like I'll be starting with a little downward dog.
