Training For a Race Keeps You Motivated

Are You Training For a Race?

Back in my dancing days I was always rehearsing for a show. Knowing I would be performing in front of a live audience helped me keep my eyes on the prize. I rehearsed hard. I took technique class religiously. But times have changed, and though the stage no longer calls me I do like the structure of a good race.

I must confess though, I have yet to sign up for upcoming races this season. While I am pretty diligent about working out regularly (let's face it — it is easier to stay in shape than get back into shape), with no race day looming in my future it's easier to skip that 6:00 a.m. spin class. I find that I am not pushing myself as I normally do once springtime hits, so I know I will be sealing the deal and paying the entrance fee for a sprint triathlon soon . . . and a 10K too. Now that I have 'fessed up, what's your story.
