Looking into the future mind-shift and trying to find the beauty in it.

I've been thinking about certain opportunities that are presenting themselves and just wondering how I can even entertain such thoughts, because I'm busy dude!  I'm pretty sure that after the 2014 summer season that my goals will have to shift pretty dramatically.  I've been pretty self centered the past few years in my own training.  It's time to see if I can shift that focus to others without completely giving up on myself.  I need to learn to be happy with not feeling like I'm in the best shape of my life.  I feel that once I give up on my training at this intensity that I'll officially feel over 40.  Actually at mid-life.

I have to learn to be content with that.  It's tough.

This morning got up and did my goal workout:
