Stay Motivated this Offseason

You trained for weeks, even months...liz2and your event came and went like Rachel Joyce through an aid station on the bike course. The buildup was epic, the race was everything you hoped it would be, and the elation of crossing the finish line was fantastic, but now it’s gone.  How can something you put so much time into preparing for come and go so quickly?  Winter is setting in, and the weather is cooling down.  What’s your next goal?  How do you stay in shape?

Here are some activities and tips for staying motivated during the offseason.

  1. Plan your event schedule for next year. There are so many beautiful venues to be experienced and courses to be conquered across the globe. Research your events, and begin planning your schedule. Ask yourself, what type of race suits you? Where would/could you like to travel to?
  2. Asses you gear, what worked, what needs improvement, make a list of wants/needs for next season to help accomplish your goals. Start shopping and look for sales on your next purchases.

  4. Relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy the holidays! Have fun with friends and family. Stay healthy and fit, but even if you gain a pound or two, it can be a good thing for your long term health and help you get stronger for next season.

When Life Gives You Lemons…Make Lemonade

Little did I know that I would hug my dad for the last time on November 2, 2013. He and my mom had come to visit me in Reno, NV from Duluth, MN. I had a plane ticket to come visit for June 7, but that was 12 days too late. He died on May 26, 2014.
