If you have been following my blogs, one of the first blog’s I wrote this year was setting daily/weekly/monthly/yearly goals. I also have written a blog or two about signing up for some sort of race to keep you focused and will help keep you on a consistent exercise schedule. A few of my fitness goals for this year are to complete a triathlon and complete two running races. Last week I signed up for my first indoor sprint triathlon. It’s the shortest and quickest triathlon. This particular race is being held at my local gym. It’s a 500 meter swim, a 10 mile cycle, and a 3.1 mile run(5K). The professionals are finishing this in 1:15 minutes and under. So, I hired a swim coach and started training for the race last week. I have one month to prepare for it! I’m super nervous but also really excited! Look, I’m a really competitive person! I have been since I was a little girl. It’s a part of me that I really tap into when it comes to these athletic situations so that’s why I just can’t seem to get my mind around the fact that I can’t even swim 25 meters without having a huge anxiety attack! Who knew!! I mean really, I’ve been breathing since the moment I came out of my mother’s belly! I didn’t have to learn how to breathe I just did! So why the hell am I forgetting to breathe under water?? BECAUSE YOU’RE UNDER THE WATER BRYNA!! ok so this is what I need to do, calm down, breathe, get out of my own head and just do it! Don’t think about it just do it! If you stay in your head too much with anything you’re setting yourself up for disappointment and failure. So the silver lining here my lovely blog readers is to be in the moment. Enjoy what you’re doing in that moment and do the best you can! Embrace it and be happy with the fact that you’re going to complete one of your goals for 2012! Think Fit, BE Fit!!
