Training Flexibility


I’m not very flexible in my thinking. Today was a pool day. I had a lot to do so I made sure that I got there soon after the 9:30 am opening. When I got out of my car Wonda was coming out of the gate and she told me the pool was closed due to engineering issues. What the heck. I got back in my car and headed home. For me this meant no exercise today because I was going to go on with my day and that didn’t include an alternate exercise plan.

Half way home I decided to go to the park and walk. It was about 35 degrees (Fahrenheit) Not too cold. I’m a walker not a jogger/runner so I have to go some before I get warm.  Anyway I  still had time since I would have been in the pool. So I went to the park. Not my best walk, just about 2 1/2 miles but it was something.

I have a goal and that’s to be comfortable in my fall 2014 Triathlon. Training starts now and if I can’t do one thing maybe I can do another. No swim but can I walk and eventually ride? Sure I can. I have to  be flexible and just do it!
