Sometimes you just keep going

The past few weeks have not been easy.  It began with a reaction to the flu shot, followed by a  fall, seasonal allergies, and a lot of travel.  I love to travel but I do get out of my routine.  I’ve missed several workouts and I have felt it the past week.  With Sam’s encouragement (of course),  I have just kept going.  When I ask Sam if I should do something different because of my schedule, he tells me to stick to the plan.  That is what I am doing.  My times have suffered some because of missing workouts but I know that I will regain the time by being consistent and continuing to train.

One positive thing that I have noticed is that I feel stronger and like I can go longer.  I am slower right now, but I am going farther than I had been going in the pool, running and on the bike. I know that it will come together over time.

An example of consistency

My cousin Nancy is one of my examples of what can be accomplished with consistent training. She is a cancer survivor and has taken up running since her recovery. I think she ran before but she is dedicated now.  She prefers 10k’s and half marathons.  This is one of many things that I admire about her.  I love this photo of her because it looks like she is experiencing sheer joy.  Yes, sometimes you do just have to keep going and it pays off.
