What motivates you? What makes you get out of bed or get your butt off the couch? What keeps you working out and what keeps you going season after season?
The picture of those legs is what has motivated me to keep riding for a long time! I want legs like that!!
Like many, I am not the most naturally gifted athlete. I have always played and enjoyed sports - sometimes even competitively - but I no longer dream of riding in the professional peloton at the Tour De France or playing on the PGA tour or hitting balls at Wimbledon. I gave up those dreams somewhere along the way...
I still have goals though! My main goal is to not become a fat slob of a guy. I want to be fit ...and someday maybe even skinny again. I love competing - whether its beating my playing partners on the golf course, or logging more miles on my bike than my best friend, Doug, (which I again did this year!) or whatever - I love to compete. But I'm finding that the older I get the more I need new challenges to keep me motivated.
So... this next year, I want to do a couple sprint triathlons. I haven't identified the races yet, but I've started training and its become fun again. In fact, 'fun' is a huge, underrated factor to staying motivated...
Do what you love doing... Set some new goals to push yourself... Get your butt of the couch and go ____! (you can fill in the blank, right?)
Even though I'm the Pastor of Crestview Baptist Church they don't officially "approve" my blog posts. Just because I say it, don't assume they endorse it - occasionally I am even wrong - shocking and rare - but true! My views are my views ...so chill!
