Consistency. It's What's For Dinner.

And breakfast, lunch and snacks.  That is, it needs to be.  I have a bad habit that I'm going to admit here for all of you:

 

I am an inconsistent athlete.

 

 

 

 

Shocking, I know.  Especially given my amazing athletic prowess.

 

 

What will happen is, I'll find something that inspires me (e.g. the Kona Ironman on the ol' Tivo) and jump into action.  I'll train appropriately for a time.  Sometimes a day, sometimes a few weeks.

 

 

Then something comes up, be it illness,

visitors,

 

 

work,

 

 

what have you; any old excuse will do.  I will then start declaring to TriGuy (hey, if I get an alter ego he should get one too) that
