It is a new year, time for new goals.
Last year at this time, I had committed to climbing the Nose with careful preparation as days turned from January to late May. I began slowly with my training regimen -- easing on the ice cream, alcohol, and exercising too. If you know me, you know that I am sort of non-stop. This was an endurance training, so non-stop was great, but I didn't want to wear too quickly.
After the Nose in June, I cancelled a massage appointment and to this day haven't made time to reschedule....
It has been an awesome year, but I have realized that I need to rest. I want to have another rad year!!!
A little nap in the midst of the already full year of events-- 2013 has a full schedule of trips, expeditions, retreats, training and more training, work, growth, and hopefully laughter and health.
I have athletic ambitions, as well as, work commitments. Dovetail Mountain will take another leap....for the best I can only hope!!!
To start this year, I have moved to the beach for a month of yoga, surfing, running, napping, and handstands. I felt strong before I left Colorado--forearms full of endurance--- but the earth was also full of freezing cold temperatures. Rock climbing season was in hibernation.
This is my mini-hibernation.
I do worry about loosing my endurance or mental strength, but am also aware of this much needed break. It is a new year. Time for new beginning.
Re-set, let go, start from a base that is even better than the year past.
Looking, standing, breathing again!
