This really IS one of those videos you have to watch all of the way to the end…
So what’s next? That I'm not sure of yet. I've considered doing some local low-key triathlons next summer (just one or two), if I'm able to do it just for fun and not spend the entire winter, spring, and summer training for and building up to it. I've also thought about just focusing on pole vault competitions next summer and taking a full break from triathlon for a time. How I come back from having this next kid will also be a big answer to all of that. At the very least, I will be pole-vaulting for sure!
They say it takes three weeks to create a habit. I started triathlons over six years ago, and it’s not just a summer sport, it’s a daily lifestyle. Can I imagine NOT getting in the pool, on the bike, or out for a run? No. But some time off is also necessary, and then I can move forward doing what I WANT instead of what I feel I HAVE to do. I can miss workouts and not feel guilty. I’ll focus a lot on weight lifting and return to the swim, bike, and run each in their own time when I feel like doing so. And I’ll pole vault as soon as possible after Baby #3 is born! I know the importance of being active during pregnancy but I don’t need to stress over it, or get frustrated when things don’t go as planned. It’s time to have some FUN!
