The Surge

Thanksgiving is over (and happy Thanksgiving to you all!), and with this landmark holiday behind me, I find myself wanting to start base training. Immediately. Tomorrow. Time to work that weight off, dial in the nutrition (I've been prepping my nutrition for the past two days), and build my endurance (and build and build and build). I'm not scheduled to come out of off season for another two or three weeks (at least). But as soon as I think, "You know, I could just start my base training tomorrow," I feel this little surge in my stomach. My body is saying, "YES! YES! YES! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! LET'S GOOOOOOO!"

So I guess I'm ready.

  1. Take it easy, Jamie. Stick to your original schedule.

    But certainly enjoy the readiness now and work in some non-focused SBR workouts. And be flexible. Do it some days, don't do it others.

    (This coming from a guy who just scheduled another 1/2 marathon and a full marathon in the next three months, all the while ramping up my tri base training in January. It's easier to give the advice than it is to follow it. ;) )
