For the second time in 2 years I have had surgery that has ended my season. Last year it was tumors on my legs this year it is an abdominal issue. I cant seem to catch a break.
I can look at this from two angles.The first being anger. "Why does this happen to me" or two, move on. I am choosing the later. I met with a new swim coach yesterday, I laid out my plans for 2018 and once medically cleared will begin the journey again.
I knew that this year was going to be difficult. I had injuries early on, parted ways with my coach and never got into the swing of the season. That is now behind me and I feel a whole new sense of energy going forward. It feels good.

I started up again on July 1 and so far it has been good, all except my swim. Once again i find myself fighting with the water. The one thing I have to realize is that this time I will win the battle. No matter what happens in the pool I will not let it get me down. Every time I swim is a good thing, time in the water will only make me stronger. I am starting from ground zero and will follow my schedule and become the swimmer I need to be to complete my goal.

January was a good month except for a few days when I felt like crap. I have decided to focus on my swim and I need to improve my core strength so I am working with swim coach Gina and weight coach Anthony. I am getting better in the pool every day. I need to get a race schedule put together asap.
Run: 43 miles
Bike: 140.8 miles
