Promise Keeping

Today was just some spinning on the bike early in the morning, followed by some light weights during lunchtime. More importantly, I vowed today that swimming officially starts next week. Why not sooner, if I'm so determined to get it going? Well, I've got Niko this week and work continues to be very busy. And one of the most important things I've learned in many years of consistent training is not to make unreasonable demands of yourself. That just leads to disappointment and despair, and then things really fall apart. On the other hand, if you only ask youself to do what is truly possible—if you don't give yourself good excuses for not keeping at it—you're more likely to stay committed.

I'm looking forward to getting back to balanced workouts. To, you know, being a triathlete.
