One more day
One more day in Victoria and we got lucky this time around. Every key workout in the last two weeks was in the sun. Yesterday it turned into fall in a hurry and today we had some good cold rain. Thursday off to the big island and I can’t wait. In the past i’ve been a bit reserved in excitement about Hawaii. Mostly because I knew I was likely going to receive a thumping and that ain’t no fun. This year, i’m heading in with a better perspective I think. I simply want to go there and see what my best effort can produce. I think we can often tell ourselves we are not outcome oriented but underneath the bullshit we still want a certain outcome. I think this is human nature. This year I feel more at peace with the whole thing, more like a rookie. I have no real expectation because I have no real result there, so far all attempts have lacked any fireworks. A solid day with no major detonations and a chance to see what my best effort produces and I’ll give myself a high 5.
The last two weeks I’ve been on the MNTP philosophy. It’s a method of training developed by a team of coaches years ago. Like most philosophies it’s not rocket science and with only two real weeks to hit some key workouts I figured my body would do well with a small variation in stimulus. So far so good.
