Musical Monday - Inner Ninja

It's Monday!!! Are you ready?! I am READY!!!
(**note my excessive use of exclamation points says I am ready - so very ready!!!!!!***)

This is it friends. It is time. Marathon Training. Triathlon Prep. Let's Do This! I am hitting the pool, rocking out in my Spin Classes, and running my little legs off. Upper Body Work is a No-No for another month, but I have been given the okay to train again (*more info on the training details later this week*). Part of post-op recovery  is rebuilding. It is just important to do it properly, listen to your body, and train smart. Which is why it is time to channel my Inner Ninja!

No sweat, no fear, no blood, no tears. I go hard and I ain't makin' up no excuse.
I think it would be easy to give up on my dream of a sub 5 marathon this year. I mean here I am gearing up to rebuild...again. I have to rebuild strength, stamina, endurance, everything. It feels like despite all my hard work last year, I have to start all over again. But I am not making any excuses. It time to train, rebuild, and go!

I'm overdue, I don't do what I'm supposed to do. Cause you can think about it man, we're supposed to lose 
I know how this goes. I am always fighting to come back from behind. My genetic failings have all said that I am supposed to lose. But forget that. I am overdue. This year is my year. And as promised I am making Heart Disease and Breast Cancer my BITCH! Bring it!

Hey yo, I've been high and I've been real low. I've been beaten and broken but I healed though 
To say that this year has been tough is an understatement. In the last 12 months I have had 3 surgeries. There are the physical challenges that go along with that, but there is also the very real emotional toll that it all takes on your life as well. My body has been beaten, broken, and bruised a few times. But I am back. I have healed. And as always, life goes on. 

There ain't a thing I've faced thats been too much for me 
These challenges have only made me hungry though. They have only made me want to reach those goals that much more. And they have taught me that I am strong - stronger than all of this. More than ever I am determined to train hard, and make that sub-5 marathon dream mine.

Nobody's gonna see me comin'. 
Nobody's gonna hear a sound. 
No matter how hard they tryin'. 
No stoppin' me since I've found. My inner ninja

So let's do this friends! Me and my Inner Ninja are waging a stealthy war against genetics. Nobody is gonna see me coming, but this year I am gonna run harder, better, faster, and stronger than ever before. Watch out world! I am back! And I am coming for ya!
