The last few weeks I have felt like a nomad. After a three week period that included moving, Christmas, New Years, and a little vacation in Colorado, I was very excited to get home and settle down. Although settling in at home is a little different than it has been in the past because I am settling into my parent’s house in San Jose. Living in a new place has different challenges to the routine that I had for myself when I was living in the East Bay area. I have to find new places to bike, run, and hopefully find a new team to swim with. I still plan on training at the Olympic Club in San Francisco and I am excited to be able to use more of the facilities there now that my focus is on training. (Definitely want to start checking out the nap room…) I have to say that the move to a new spot has had me pretty anxious. However, after getting out for a ride and run in the 70 degree weather today, I have become slightly less anxious. I am starting to get a grasp on what, where, and when I might be training and I am excited to prepare myself to compete at the best of my abilities. I hope that this finds you enjoying the New Year; I know that I am excited for 2012 and I hope that you are as well.
