I haven’t added any new fitness goals for 2 reasons.
1. I have focused too strongly on those because they have been successful, and correspondingly I have slacked on the others. This 43 things website should be set up like a wack-a-mole game (for those that don’t know this game, I am sure you local carnival has a similar one, probably just a different name).
2. I did the adventure race the week after my triathlon. I felt some strain on my knee in the triathlon, but I still went ahead and did the adventure race the next week. It was a team event so I really had no choice but to stick it out. I did very well, I was surprised how fit I was becoming, a 3km ocean kayak, a 6km mountain bike and a 3km trail run. All nice and short, a lot of vertical but nothing too hard. I didn’t let my team down by any stretch. In any case, by the time I was heading out on the trail run I began to feel some tightness in my knees. By the time I was done, there was no denying that my right knee had been overused. According to my neighbour the doctor, it has something to do with liquifying cartilage or something. I think it is strain from riding the bike with bad form (yes, I do suck at that too). In any case, all it needs is rest. So, I will wait to start training for my 1/2 marathon until next week. I am supposed to run it in November, so I should have time if I am smart about this.
I am working on the live sexier. I think a lot of what would complete me; make me feel more genuine is in there. I just don’t have anything concrete yet. I have an idea and I will be adding it shortly though, I think.
I just wanted to put this down so I didn’t think I was slacking. I will also develop a next steps plan shortly. I think I need some direction moving into winter. That is what winter is for, hunkering down and doing things.
