It feels good to be travelling again, it means that opportunities are on the horizon. I've returned to Southern California for the second time this outdoor season, in order to get a few last competitions in to tune up for the Olympic Trials. Luckily with my current training regiment and style I am able to fit everything I need in my car, to continue my program without missing a beat. Its funny, convenient, and awesome.
As the past two weeks have gone by, my plans seem to have changed almost on a daily bases. As of now, I will be competing tomorrow at Mount San Antonio College (Mount SAC) and most likely at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista the following Thursday. After that, I will decide what is next for me. With Mount SAC stepping up and putting on there own meets, there are now more options for us post-collegiate athletes. It's very opportune for me as my schedule still needs to be variable. I will continue to train this month and slowly taper off my conditioning to peak on June 28th, so with more competitions to choose from I can be picky about what the weather has to offer, and what my body has to offer on that particular day. It has become a very optimal situation leading up to the trials. Travel however is always an issue. I can't stay down here too long, otherwise I will find myself making the long trip back up North, only to hang around for a few days, then take an even longer trip up to Eugene from Auburn, which would more than likely leave me with some unneeded physical setbacks.
So like I said, get through these first two competitions, then assess. Keep my options open, focus on the present, and the future will fall right into the perfect place.
