I recently just started training for ... nothing!
It's kinda nice honestly. I am a major abundance of free time. I actually see my girlfriend more than every once in a while, I am not constantly eating (well, kind of), I am able to focus on work quite a bit more (which is a good thing), and I am never worrying about if I got in a specific workout for the week in.
My "Off season" will consist of some "cross training" in the form of lots of yoga (for flexibility and core strength), strengthening my hip flexors, some light weight workouts (maintain some strength), quite a bit of volleyball, a fair amount of surfing, as much camping as I can fit in, and a very generous amount of laziness, and probably having a beer or two or...
The justification is easy since taking time off helps you come back stronger, right? :)
It's definitely time to focus on some other goals I have lined up for this fall, and early winter. The blog will get updated from time to time, but nothing like it was leading up to lavaman and vineman.
