Juggling time

Welcome to Simonetta-Training's first blog.  Most of you know that I can sort of swim, kind of bike, and run.  But, did you know that I can juggle?  Yes, I learned to juggle with racquetballs when I was about 10 years old.  I have been juggling ever since. Today, it just happens to be a different type of juggling- family time, my job as a physical therapist and trainer/coach, my personal swim, bike, and run training, as well as numerous day to day duties that must be done.  Oh, and I cannot forget my furry 4 legged friends: 4 dogs and numerous cats, collectively know as the zoo, that require my care and attention and give me their attention and love unconditionally.

Training properly for a triathlon is very time consuming, and fitting it into our daily lives without disrupting all aspects of life can again be challening.  But, yes it can be done.  I feel it is best if one decides how much time is available in a given day for training, and then for the training schedule to be set.  I make a "to do" list each evening for the upcoming day.  My schedule is filled from 4:30am to 9:00pm.  OK, sometimes I am in bed by 8:00pm, but I can't help it.  I am no spring chicken anymore.

So, make the most of everyday.  You know how the saying goes: you never know when it will be our last.

B Positive,
