Well, not anymore but I was. This year I put a lot of expectations on myself as an athlete, employee and coach. There were many lessons learned but over the last month they just piled up on my shoulders and it was nice to escape New York with Kristine and her family to Florida.
We spent a few days in St. Augustine, where Kristine’s sister lives, and then we spent 3 days in Miami. I thought this was going to be a good week to get some solid training in but, my #1 goal was to relax. If I felt like running or swimming I did and if I didn’t I simply did not. And, I didn’t care! At the end of the day I averaged working out every other day, which kept the juices flowing.
Now that I am home, I’m more motivated to start the New Year in the correct state-of-mind; clear, energized and ready to put out the effort all year long!
