Today I visited my old baby, meaning project Circus Stenkrossen, for the first time in very long ^^ Can't say I did very much, I'm so out of shape that it's ridiculous Trained 2 hours yesterday and got blood blisters on my hands #backontrack
Got in my Burpees today then focused on some upper body movements. Had to get in a decent workout. My girls are off from school so I worked out just a little bit longer I've been feeling good in the gym and there's really nothing new going on. Just preparing my mind for Thanksgiving. So if I seem distant, there's something you should understand. Because I used to deal (And still deal) with an eating disorder, I get extremely anxious around Thanksgiving. I understand it's about being thankful but there's a crap ton of food that I don't normally consume. I'm always afraid of losing control and allowing myself to binge. That "only one day a year" voice creeps in my head. I NEED to stay in control. I've worked too hard fighting these demons to let it go. No, it's not one day a year. It's my body and I will not get the urge to purge. I just need to stay strong. If you've battled, then you understand my worries. I wish it would just go away, but it forever haunts me. I will be happy, I know I can do this.
So here's to my day 26 (I think) of Burpees. I haven't been doing them everyday but it's getting there #50BurpeeChallenge#30Days#BurpeeChallenge
And we swim... And we get stronger... And we get faster... That’s how us mermaids roll! 🧜♀️ 3500m in the bank with a 20 x 50m faster main set. BREATHE!!!
In the morning I ran 10x400m @4.05/km, 1’ intervals on the treadmill. ♀️ I did the same set last week and couldn’t do them all with that 1’ recovery but today, today I could! That’s progress right there. It wasn’t easy today either, but that’s not the point. It hurt but when it was over I was already looking forward for the next run!
What I’m beginning to understand better every day is that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. You gotta love the journey. If you don’t it’s not worth it. Because life happens mostly during the journey and you never know whether you’re really going to reach your destination. You may not. So the journey is in fact ALSO the destination. And I freaking love this crazy triathlon journey!!!
