Motivation by Guilt?
Why is it that when I wake up at 4 am my first thought it’s too get on the trainer and ride for a little while before I have to go to the Y to swim? I guess the real question is, why am I getting up at 4am when most of the normal world is still asleep? I love mornings. Back to the first question…
I think it’s an obsession. Healthy? Maybe. Maybe not. Triathlon is certainly a lifestyle, but even enthusiasm has its limits. Beyond enthusiasm is obsession? Now there’s an interesting thought. So I can just think of my obsession with training as super enthusiasm: enthusiasm on steroids.
My typical day goes something like this:
wake up 4am
ride the trainer
swim if it’s monday
go to sleep
That’s my 5 step process. Maybe I should be considering a 12 step process?
