Ain't Over Till It's Over

I remember posting this song to my Facebook page after Lonestar... after I decided to keep on pursuing triathlon. I decided to keep going with it and signed up for coaching. I even signed up for the Galveston 5150 this October.

Maybe it is over.

Between work and the tri training I have been just beat lately. I have also been feeling like I have no time to do the things I really want to be doing like fishing, weightlifting, and working on my old project car. I have had no desire to do any more races after the Sylvan Beach Duathlon, which I didn't even post about. I took some time off to go visit my mom in Alabama, and decided to end the coaching after that. It just was not the right thing for me. I just don't want to devote that much time to it.

I have not had much activity this week. I went on a run today, but didn't get out until 9:00. That was a mistake made even worse by my current mental state with respect to tri training. The run was a real struggle of 'why am I doing this' and 'just quit and forget it all', particularly after halfway. I took long walk breaks and shortened my run intervals, but there was no motivation in it at all.

Actually that nails it, no motivation.

So am I going to finish it out and do the 5150? Honestly right now I am thinking no. I made a list of pro's and con's for doing triathlon right next to my list for getting coaching, and the lists were not that different. But, maybe I just need to work on my own for a few weeks and 'reset' to see if I feel any different about it.
