Oh, and to get this tattooed on Friday along with the words Love, Laugh, Run (with a Mickey head for the 'o' in Love).
Back to the kicking of my own ass. That really is my new plan. Each summer I spend too much time sitting on my ass surrounding the time between playing base/whiffle/soft/kick-ball. Especially with watching 3-6 hours of live coverage of the Tour de France. This summer? Nope, not going to happen. I do plan on watching coverage, but waiting until the one hour recap at night. More time will be spent doing strength training: push-ups, planks, running form drills, running muscle strengthening exercises, PT exercises, more walks, more pitching at the cages (my kids love to HIT so we got some softballs and baseballs to practice with along with a couple cages near by-though one doesn't have a blocker for me...need to find my cup...), and more taking care of the landscaping around our house. Yeah, that's my plan.
When I'm ready to race again next year (I am not planning on doing any racing this year to help fully recover), I plan on being fully ready and to, hopefully, return to the form I had last year.
So, my plan? Like I said, to kick my own ass.
