Looking forward to recovery day

I have been training for about 2 1/2 months now and I have never been so happy to have a recovery day as I am about tomorrow.

This past week has been stressful with the dogs and work and throw in tough training and the recovery day is timed perfectly.

I remember when I looked at this week's training and I thought that it was a lot of work just prior to a race.  I know that these races are nothing more then additional training for me but I was still somewhat surprised by what I was scheduled.

Well, I looked again today b/c I knew that tomorrow was another swim day.  The week is not as difficult as I originally thought it would be.  Tomorrow's swim is a total of 500 yards.  I remember when that used to be a lot but now I look at that and think.....how late can I get to the gym and still be able to get back in time for work.

Back to the dogs.  We got an email today from a shelter that asked that I bring the male dog back in.  I am excited because it means that he will have a chance to find another home and hopefully be happy.  He is not a bad dog but he has major separation anxiety and that causes issues for Karen and I because we are always coming and going.  Not being able to come and go as we please adds a stress to our life that is not necessary right considering all the stress we already have.  I'm sorry to have him leave us but I know that our life will be enhanced by one less stress.

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
