My body has changed a lot in the past two months. I’ve gained 9 lbs since my half IronMan. I’ve lost some definition in my belly and arms.
But I expected that.
It’s off season.
I’m not spending 15 to 20 hours a week working out.
I’m not spending every Sunday on a long bike ride.
I’m not spending lunch breaks or dinners away, swimming 80 laps in a pool.
I am, however, laying on the couch more.
Drinking more wine.
Watching more Netflix.
Going on more weekend road trips.
Eating more carbs. Wait, I never stopped eating carbs.
I don’t spend all day logging every mile or calorie.
But I am still working out 3-4 times a week. I love my personal trainer at Anytime Fitness!!
But this is off season.
I am accepting of this body.
I am accepting of this extra “free time.”
And I am confident that I will return to my triathlon training stronger than ever in January.
Until then, I am okay with being a little extra squisher.
Justin snapped the picture below when I was walking outside. The picture is a perfect representation of my off season bod! A body that I still love and appreciate. A body that is still strong.
I originally thought I would dive straight into training again. I planned on doing a half marathon this November and going for a PR!
But darn it – I needed a break. Big time.
And I am perfectly happy taking it easy for awhile.
So, what’s your favorite Netflix show? I’ll add it to my list.
