Back when I started this blog I was new to multisport. Back then my blog was exciting for me to write about because I'd always had pathetic endurance and speed. When I played football in high school I finished the runs in practice in last place. Guys who outweighed me by 50+ pounds could outrun me. In the army I had to run in the slowest group. If I was going to build enough speed and endurance to finish a triathlon or duathlon iť was going to be a HUGE transformation. I became obsessed. I trained an average of twenty-two hours a week. And iť showed. Back then I had so much I could blog about everyday. New places I trained. New workouts. What types of training seemed to work, what diets helped, equipment, which races I wanted to try, etc.
The last couple years triathlons and duathlons has
started to bore me. I still enjoy to cycling and running occasionally but not
nearly as much as I used to. Most shocking to me is that I'm tired of racing. On
Sunday my stomach was upset, so I didn't race a triathlon I had signed up and
paid for. Back in my hard core multisport days nothing would have stopped me
from racing. Back then I'd have showed up and raced even if I was projectile vomiting
For the last 14 weeks I've been attending CrossFit 5 days a week. I'm average at it. I've made
average improvements, average strength gains, and average weight loss doing
CrossFit. There just doesn't seem to be anything all that exciting to blog about
now. Being average is boring, most people are average. Now that my fitness focus has changed my blog may
be the most boring blog in the world.
