Goals are Powerful Motivators

Another week is in the books.  Last week was a solid week despite the huge snowstorm last Friday.  I managed to get in 3 swims, 3 runs and 3 rides, along with 2 strength sessions.  The weekend training was where the goals as powerful motivators came into play.  Jaime and I did our long run on the track and treadmill on Saturday for 1.5-1.75 hours, then swam for about an hour.  The next day, we followed it up by riding our trainers for 2-3 hours.  Talk about boring.  If it wasn't for the goal of getting faster and qualifying for worlds, those workouts would have been pretty much impossible for me to mentally get through. 

We finished up the week by going to a friends house for the Superbowl.  Great game, tasty food, but when you don't eat outside of the paleo diet, it really hurts the stomach when you do. 

Best workout song of the week was definitely Renegade by The Styx.  Heard it during Tuesday's trainer class, and it came back on during the long run on Saturday.  Oldie but a goodie!

That's all for now.  Remember, spring will be here soon.
