Day 2 on the road and of course the longer I spend away and alone the deeper the thoughts get. You really find out if you like yourself when you spend this much time by yourself.
I think I am as guilty as anyone for sometimes focusing too much on the problems in life. I have spent too much time in my life on people who don’t want what I bring to the table or appreciate what I am about. Being on the road and spending time alone, I realize what I do bring to the game. I genuinely want others to be happy and succeed. I am passionate and wear my heart on my sleeve. It’s not always good but for the most part it is. I would do anything for the people I care about and appreciate people in my life. This is not about tooting my own horn but rather recognizing the opportunities that are in my life as a result of these characteristics I possess. Why focus on what I don’t have or don’t bring to the table. Many people can’t find passion in their life and sadly go through the motions. So my focus mentally is find a way to channel my strengths to make me a better person long term.
See way to much alone time driving. Enough of that rant.
Today was a big day training wise. 20k on the bike followed by upper body strength training and finished off with 750m in the pool. Will be sore tomorrow but feeling the adrenaline rush still as I head on the highway to Oshawa for another game.
Final thought of the day:
Here’s to new beginnings and the end of fight.
