This is going to be a little bit of a difficult year for me because of the sporadic races on terrible dates (in regards to Spartan).
For example, the Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur sprint will fall on the day I will be in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. This will make it a little bit difficult for me to get a sprint in. Now there’s a Super here in Thailand – making that journey extremely easy. However, Thailand will have only one race in May.
And then there’s the Beast — a 20km monster. This is going to have to be completed in Australia in November. So, that means I might be taking two trips to Australia this year for a Hurricane Heat and a Beast….but the Hurricane Heat is in February and might be too soon to travel to Australia…so I might bump it.
Nonetheless, I have a Beast in Australia, Super in Thailand, and Sprint in ______________.
This will allow me to achieve the trifecta, which means completing the three races and getting an amazing medal for it.
This is the “why” power behind my working out. The reason why I’ve gotten much bigger and I’ve taken running so much more seriously is because if I don’t, these competitions could end in a disaster.
Now, another goal of mine is of course to become more lean. Since joining this wonderful gym back in September of last year, I feel like I’ve gone from looking lean to looking bigger. Was that a goal? To a certain extent, but I don’t want to look “big.” This is why I include loads of cardio in my workouts because my intent is not to become a muscle head (oops – lol).
Eating habits will gradually incline, but it will be a bit costly. Bangkok has this “healthbox” company that delivers lean, vege, vegan, and other types of meals all across Bangkok. This could save me a little bit of money, and it could save a lot of time trying to look for food (which is always packed with sodium here).
Typing this right now is utterly exciting though. Not that many people around the world have this type of lifestyle. I’m able to travel at will, go to different places around the world, inspire people globally, and shake hands locally. It’s just such a remarkable way to start off the New Year.
However, there is just one problem……
