Not another triathlon. Not for a long time. I'm traumatized over Sunday's Pigman Long Distance Triathlon. It was terrible. I packed up my wetsuit and hung my bike in the garage.
I want nothing to do with these things in the coming weeks. I have decided I want to tackle the USAT National Championship in Sprint Triathlon. I don't want a life of "what ifs."
But in order to do this, I need to buckle down. I need to take off the weight I gained through my divorce and build back my speed. I need to get stronger, mentally and physically. I need to focus on eating clean and lifting heavy things.
So I'm going back to CrossFit. I have a work trip next week and will go back to WODs and weights and box jumps after that. I've frozen my gym membership and rearranged my schedule so I can dedicate three months to building myself up before a nine months of sprints and speed workouts and long runs. I would like to continue to do the Circular Logic Marathon forever, perhaps adding another spring marathon, then train for Nationals and Ironman Wisconsin.
Basically, being a badass is what's next.
