The training mode is full-on now. I’m past the first two weeks of shock and awe and now I’m fully into the groove. I have to say – I’m really enjoying training again. I didn’t realize how much I missed it. Apart from the structure and the challenging work-outs is the mental boost I get from training.
I just feel good. I feel good about myself. I feel good about where I am and where I’m going. Definitely my confidence was lagging before I started training again (perhaps this was the reason why I was not convinced I wanted to race again..) – but now that I’m just wrapping up week three of training, I have landed in a happy place.
It is amazing how vital it is to simply feel good about yourself.
These feelings trickle down into every aspect of my life. I seem to appreciate what I have in my life more and I recognize that none of this can be taken for granted. I count myself lucky that I’m able to recognize this. As my yoga teacher always says “Start your day with an attitude of gratitude”. So very true.
