I usually take some time off after my last race of the season. I try not to burn myself out. I saw how a lot of people had half marathons, and marathons, and even another Ironman on the schedule before the end of the year. I guess I just poured so much into September 28th that I really hadn't thought about anything after that.

In fact the few people that did ask me about anything going on in October, I told them that if it was after September 28th, it was not even on my radar. I'm like, people have plans for things after 9/28? I had no idea. I was lazer focused on that race. And I think that paid off for me.
|Oh yeah. Almost forgot about my Panthers Season Tix|
So my outseason (how's that for some tri-dork lingo!) goal for October was nothing. Literally to do nothing. Everything in life goes back to a Seinfeld episode. I wanted to make sure everything was healed up before starting training again. Mostly, though, I had to get to the point that I wanted to start training again. I think you have to find what works for you. Many people think taking that much time off is a terrible idea. Maybe for them, but not for me. I think I know myself better than anyone else. I feel like I kinda know what I'm doing. #Kona2015
So as October comes to a close, I have my bike all ready to ride. I finally feel like I want to go for a ride and a run. Even going for an open water swim sounds interesting. The Pool? Well not so much yet. But that will come.
