"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated" ~ Confucius
I am learning to keep my thoughts more focused and not so scattered. It's hard and something I constantly battle with. Always learning to tackle the things I can change one by one. The ones that I can't I am learning to let go and not let bother me. Navigating life always has its challenges and learning lessons along the way but I feel like I am growing more as a person as time goes on.
Now that soccer provincials are over this weekend I am taking up yoga and work on learning that practice. I feel like it's the last piece of the puzzle and will help me move and think better. I am also looking at taking some courses this year in the fitness world so I can help others out there. I keep going back to it and it must be what I am to do. I am going to focus my races and not do them all next year. I know I keep saying that but one of these years I will follow thru on it. lol That's another work in progress. Lol
I am freaking excited to be heading back to Seattle April 22nd to do the Spartan Super on the 23rd. I fell in love with Seattle when we were there in October plus I loved the race course. Just my son and I are going on this adventure so will be fun. I am racing alone so will see what I can do and if you see me out there I will always gladly take help at an obstacle, your always welcome to join me and as always say HI!! Lol
I start racing season on March 19th doing a 5 mile along the Bow River in Calgary with my son. Will be a good test to see how my lungs are doing. I've only been able to get up to 5km and I hope I do better. So send me luck that day as I am going to need it. I am attempting 4 races in three weeks. I know I am crazy! lol My training is still sucking butt thanks to my awesome asthma... still no luck with running and to top it all off I am battling a chest cold.
I am pretty happy that the indoor soccer season is done. It was a challenging one with a multitude of difficulties that when the concerns were brought up it didn't help. I am hopeful that outdoor will be smoother, more fun and my son will learn more skills. My sons team went to Edmonton to play the soccer provincials. The two games on Saturday they lost but the game they played today they won 4-0 and played the best they ever had.
Well on that note I will update you and let you know how my first race of the season goes this coming weekend. Send me healing and good luck vibes as I am going to need it.
Until next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
