Finally, my motivation to work out has been sub-par lately. School and research have been intense, and I've been doing short workouts by feel. Most of the time I will either do a short circuit, go for a mindless 45 min run, or go to swim practice. Because my racing days are largely over, I don't plan a specific time of the year as an "off season". However, there's usually a couple months out of the year where my body tells me its time to just be active and lay off the intensity for awhile. I guess that time is now which is actually perfect with a lot of travel and family time coming up. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend- and happy November!
