A collection of thoughts and commentary on efforts to develop and maintain physical (and accidentally mental) wellbeing.
The basic plan: I use racing in triathlons, running races, and cycling time trials as a means to keeping myself in condition and happy. I primarily race short course triathlons (sprint and Olympic distance), the occasional duathlon, and road races up to the half marathon. But mostly I just enjoy the discipline of training.
The performance goal: to (repeatedly) deliver `the beautiful race.' Ignore devices reporting time, Watts, heart rate, etc. (useful as these can be), and just race well. The feeling can be one of euphoria.
Being fit is not quite the same as being physically healthy so I balance my training with various kinds of simple functional strength training.
For some reason, I find all of this intrinsically interesting.
