Turbo Kick Boxing

Kicked my ass last night.

Can't wait for the next one!

I will be doing my first triathlon in December. December 14th to be exact.
There's such a stigma placed on the word "triathlon" that it seems like such an impossible endeavor to accomplish. Blood, sweat, and tears go into things like that, and I'm not sure I'm ready for that gruelling task! Can I even do it?
Well, sticking with the notion that there's nothing I can't do if I set goals for myself, I've decided that yes, indeed, I can do a triathlon.

You know why?

There's one called a Sprint. It's a 600m swim (roughly 12 laps in a 50m pool), a 12 mile bike, and a 5k. THAT-can be done. Separate those legs into individual training sessions, and it can be accomplished quicker than I think. Maybe if I bribe myself with Laventina's pizza at the end of it, I'll do it even faster!

You can do it too!

Feeling Stagnant?

Several times in life we come across a point where we just feel stuck. Whether it be the monotony of our daily routines or perhaps a job that we just aren't getting the most out of. Whatever it may be, there's always an answer.

What I've found throughout my journey in life is the excitement of a new adventure always spices up any ounce of stagnancy. Trying new things has several advantages: new knowledge, excitement, perhaps a new passion, a lead into a new path in life, emotional stimulants, and most of all-something different.

One of the worst things to do is let your "self" become lost in the mix of things. Life can become very demanding and also very routine leading some people to become unhappy with themselves and with their life. What can be done? Get up and go try something new!

Set some goals that will give you something to work towards. The ultimate reward of reaching those goals is more than enough to give things a spin. Some great things to try could be: training for a triathlon for a full body adventure, joining a book club for intellectual stimulants, learning an instrument or a new type of art, or even something like underwater basket weaving. Whatever interests you may have, take time to pursue them! It will change your life!
