Farewell Off Season

Well, it is official. I have logged the last of my off season workouts and it is time to get back on the wagon. My first race is 10 weeks away and my first A race of the season is a mere 12 weeks away. It is time to get serious!

I am both nervous and excited to be entering a new season. I am excited because I love having a goal, but nervous because I know the hours and tired afternoons from early morning workouts that are just around the corner.

I have definitely learned a thing or two about respecting the off season and the importance of down time and I will go into my next off season with a sense of purpose instead of flying by the seat of my pants.

I think the best part of the off season is the excitement when the training for the "on" season starts. Of course that lasts only until you feel you need to take a nap after the first few "real" workouts :)

I'm in the same boat - last week of off season, capped off with a ski trip to Tahoe. Then next week I need to get things in gear. My Race Tickers are scaring me! Gateway to the Bay and Lone Star are not 2 months away! Eeeps!
