Some dreams live on in time forever

Thats been such a long long time since my last post and it was funny to re-read the text I wrote in 2009. I didn`t remember it but in a funny way my so-called subconscious managed to make my plan develope the way it was written and so far everything is on as predicted.

And I'm glad on being back here just to state that I'm about to get back on swimming. It was a bit unplanned but under the incentive of a co-worker i decided to re-start swimming next week. For now, I'm just running and today I'm about to start some pliometric exercises.

Stetp by step I'm getting back on track.

I was considering deleting the old posts of this blog, I'm no longer the same person, but it is a good way to keep in mind the things I don't want anymore, so... let's move forward.

I'm Back

After almost 2 years off, I'm back. I cannot say that I'm in a big gear and that my triathloning plan include an IM this year. I must say that I believe that Im is out of my league for 2 years more. But as the saying goes, we must follow our dreams even when they seem out of reach.
In a hindsight I must say that many times in my life I have reached a goal I couldn't even think I would someday conquer and moreover, the universe just made it happen not by effort but by pure desire. So here follows the plan:
1. 2009 - marathon training and yoga
2. 2010 - back to swimming
3. 2011 - back to cycling and triathlon
4. 2012 - Iroman
I just wanted to write it down and let it be public so I couldn't go on acting wussy and spend my days under the duvet, building a hefty pile of excuses to what just happen to be me bumming around instead of hitting the road and trainning.
I have heard lots of good explanations from anyone you can imagine and at the end I just figured out that even the best excuse can hide the ultimate truth: or you do or you don't do. Period. You can explain but the fact is, you weren't there, you didn't reach the goal, you haven't done what you wanted...
Well, under this light waking up in the middle of the night to follow my running schedule seems easier than, let me say, end ones life with no dream conquered.

Stillness of Heart

Two more weeks to go... 2008 is about and despite my wishes I am already late on my planning season. Yesterday I took sometime to think about who I am, what I'm willing to achieve and most of all: why..
No easy answers found... :-)

One more year to go and as many people do, december is my planning season. When it comes to sport, 2007 wasn't exactly my year, but for many good reason - and a few not that good, as lack of organization, motivation and discilpine.
2008 will be an important year - many plans, many goals to accomplish and a bit of "undedogging" things to evolve.
For as long as I'm a big fan of the "BHAG" (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals) that I am, sometimes you have to take a step back and evaluate if you're goals are insync with the way of life you expect to live and plus you must analize if you're not choosing conflitants goals. (I guess Buda has a saying about it, something that goes more or less like this: choosing conflitant expectations is a certain path for frustration).
I'm still longing for Hawai, but since I wanna win my spot and that will take hard practice and the hours I did realize that the only way to make this work is to start over in a slower pace.
And this means that I cannot have it all this fothcoming yr. I want to but my career on the fast lane and I also want to go back studying. So I decided that maybe I shall focus on the marathon and have side trainnings.
Maybe chicago - if I can get the days and the money...
lets see

Long Time

It's been a while since my last post... busy at work, studying and trying to build up my carreer, trainning just got out of my priority list.. lack of priority, lack of focus, and than.. lack of fitness.. this week I was just thinking about how it's so easy to lose track of the things you like, of the things that just were so important in your life that you couldn't even imagine spending a day without.
What made me think was my lack of energy... I was just trying to figure out the differences in my daily life from the time I just felt I could endure anything for now, when I end the week feeling exhausted...

Sports.. this was the only thing I wasn't doing at all.. and maybe the mayor factor to my lack of enthusiasm...

Having this figured out was an amazing advancement... and I begun the week focused, waking up earlier and using this extra time for a short run, or a spinning class..
I felt good....

This week I was reading an interesting post by rajesh setty about believing the excuses we give to ourselves... he makes a good point: we always can find an excuse for not doing something, but by the end of the day, what really counts is if you made it or not... the hidden danger: believing in them...

I was thinking about it about two days ago when my aching hips were calling me "the day"... well... I just gaveup trainning... ans well, I'm still far away from my ideal shape... sad but true.. meanwhile a friend of mine completed another ironman.... almost walking..

what ca I say: he is such a great guy!
