Dream a little dream...

Blogging has been...tough lately.  I feel like I've lacked the mental energy to compose, or think about my workouts  in a linear enough fashion to blog them.  That said, I've had some really great training lately and some not-so-great training.  But I suppose through the long rides on the bike, the miles on the run and the laps in the pool, I've really been thinking about what I want to accomplish.

I think of all the things that once seemed impossible to me or inconceivable.  Making any money from writing was one of those things, and that's changed entirely.  Getting yoga teacher certification seemed a million light years from anything I could do, yet now I know I just have to settle on a home studio and make the commitment, whether that is now or a year from now.  I would never have thought I could run a marathon, but I did, and am seriously considering signing up for the next one.

So, things I want to do - maybe these are more of a bucket list?

- Become a certified yoga instructor.  I don't know that I necessarily would want to teach on a regular basis, but who knows?
- Make the lion's share of my income from my writing.
- Maybe BQ?  That one still seems a little out of reach :)
- Train, train, train.  I've really enjoyed devoting a significant portion of my life to fitness, and to making healthy living a lifestyle, so it's something that I look forward to incorporating even more of over the years.

In other news, I have a new favorite shirt:
Sometimes I can feel the nerdiness seeping right out of my pores
Also, my porch herb garden is coming along fabulously.  I made lasagna the other night and added fresh basil and tarragon from little porch garden and it really brightened up the sauce.

And lastly...I went on my longest ride ever weekend before last and it was EPIC.  Training overall has really been great.  This weekend is my first tri of the season.  Hoping my swim has improved!

  1. Good luck on your tri this weekend! I'm sure you'll do great. The training I've been following has been really good, so I'm sure you'll be awesome.

    Great list of things you want to do. Keep dreaming big! I love it. Congrats on the writing stuff, I know how great that feels. I always get so excited when I think about how I'm a full time writer - how odd but awesome it is. (Also I can feel the nerdiness too - obviously)!
