slacker = me

I have done almost nothing but tennis this week. Last week's rain created a lot of make up matches which means I have played tennis every day for the past 6 days and have 3 more to go before I get a break. Luckily, after that most of the seasons are over! We are starting to practice for the USTA state championships in August so I won't get a true break until those are done. The bright side about all the tennis is it did force me to really look at my schedule and make a decision about which hobbies I want to concentrate on going forward. Clearly, I have too many interestes and need to scale back on something. The decision was to cut waaaaay back on tennis. I had gone from 7 leagues to 4 and now I am going to go down to 1 or 2. I abdicated my captain's throne for ALTA and even begged off the team which will help TREMENDOUSLY with my training schedule and gave me an immediate sense of relief when I passed the torch to the new captain!

On the calendar for tomorrow is the Georgia Games and the 1500. ummmmm..... we'll see. I have been fluctuating all day on whether or not I really want to go. Mostly a lack of confidence as I know I do not have the speed to run this event and keep up with the "real" runners. I don't think all that many people sign up for this thing so my picture of this event involves me and a handful of former track stars hoofing it around the track. I suppose as long as I don't get lapped, I will be fine :)

Next week, the plan is to get back on track with the triathlon training schedule. as I looked at my mileage for this month I have not biked AT ALL (not good!) and really haven't swam more than a few laps. Yes, slacker = me. Not enough hours in the day!
