Off the Grove...

Just a quick note to confirm that, Yup, I am definitely off the training and blogging grove. 4 weeks of non-activity since "My Inaugral Olympic Distance Triathlon That Was NOT To Be". Here are 2 pictures from the said event.


Thanks for the well wishes, prayers and encouragement. I am not sure if I will be taking a longer break, or jumping back into the swing of things soon, motivation has gone WAY down. I was toying with the idea of getting myself a set of ZIPP 404 wheels to celebrate my 40th birthday (creeping up in a couple of months), but even that idea can't seem to motivate enough to get back to training.

Until I find my motivation again, train safe and God Speed everyone!

You're looking really strong in the photos Kewl! We all need a break sometimes, that's what an off-season is for. :) Stay well!

Robin said...

You are kidding me! We can't see your face in either picture. Did you knwo they were snapping you or somethin'??? :-)

I SURE HOPE that this loss of motivation has nothing to do with your upcoming 40th bday. You will be 40 years young.

If your training mojo is just not there, enjoy some extra high quality time with R 1 & R 2!!!!

Until it comes back....enjoy everything else.

Let us know what's going on, too.

Sometimes after a big event you just need a break. You'll be back soon, I'm sure of it. Come back when you're ready. :)

I have a hard time being motivated without something big-ish to work toward. Now that your big event for the year is past, I can understand how you might lose the motivation. Maybe you should spend time figuring out what your next big event will be so you can work toward it? Somethingn to put a little ZIPP in your training (other than some ZIPP 404s) ;)

Take care of yourself, Kewl. My prayers for motivation are being sent your way.

Enjoy some rest and relaxation with your family and friends. But do continue to move your body in some way such as walking, swimming, biking, or running or maybe rock climbing. Whatever you do keep moving. God speed, Kewl

Keep at it, brother.

The ZIPPS are worth it. Seriously.

that doesn't mean you still can't the 404's.

Take care during your time off. Don't stay away from the blogging too long though, you'll be missed.

It's good to take a break. Sorry to read about the triathlon that would not be. That's a bummer, but you'll get 'r done next year... if that's what you decide you want to do. Take care.

Kewl,

I have been thinking about you lately. :). I haven't done a lot of blogging or training. I do love your running pic. Just head down and just go.

Take care Kewl :)

Hey man I've taken almost a year off of scheduled training and the only things I've blogged about are football and general life blah blah. Still running and riding but nothing on a schedule just a running event here and there.

Looking forward though to getting back to a full schedule in 2008. Will be checking up on you see how you're doing.
