Simply, wait and see...

So this post will be relatively short.  Mainly since it's not one that I'm particularly excited about putting out here... but, I know there are a lot of you out there who are interested in following my progress with this adventure, so here it is...

As most, if not all, of you already know, I'm currently in grad school at Georgia Tech to earn my masters in Aero Eng.  Over the past few weeks, I've gone through an exceedingly busy phase of this semester due to multiple projects and homeworks being due around the same time of an exam.  Of course this busy schedule won't continue at this rate the entire semester, but when it does happen, it is severely detrimental to my training... as low as 4 workouts per week, which should be upwards of 10-12.   In the beginning of the year, I made a few promises to myself when setting out on this adventure of training for a 281.2 (double Iron tri).   One of the top promises being that I would put a very high priority on my education and not allow for training to get in the way of my success on that.  It's come to my realization recently that, with the amount of time dedicated to my education, I cannot train for this race to the extent that I had planned.   This sucks, but I'm OK with it since I'm holding to my priorities.  This said, I am not giving up on what I set out to accomplish this year.  But, I am questioning whether I will have enough hours in the week to do everything that needs to be done in the long run. 

What now?  Simply, wait and see.   I'll try to keep my invaluable supporters updated as things progress, but (as you can tell from the previous long silence here) I will not be posting here as much as I would like. 

On a lighter note... follow this guy, Dean Karnazes, who is running across the country!  You'd think he'd be satisfied with a simple West-East path... but no, he's going from LA-ish to NYC.  What an incredible inspiration!!!
Dean Karnazes... going to distance, and then some

Till next time... stay healthy, and be happy!!!

  1. Hang in there honey. You are doing so many incredible things and being incredible (like you are) can be frustrating. The good news is, like any race, grad school will have one more big push and then...VICTORY!!! Looking forward to the Galveston duathlon in the meantime.
