How Moving Can Reinvigorate Your TriLife

Most people think of moving as a stressful, difficult, pain in the you know what time. That it distracts from training, and that the necessary security deposits, etc…have stolen the newest carbon fiber component they’d been saving up for right out from under them.

OK, so that last part is true. Security deposits are the devil. But here are 3 reasons why moving might just be the next best thing (after caffeine and a coachance/hoach/woach/boach/goach) for your training:

1. New routes! That’s right, if you were ever feeling like you were in a rut from doing the same 7 mile loop every Thursday morning, or the same ride out your door every Wednesday, now’s your chance to explore and invent a new route…because you have to! Woo hoo!

2. Out with the old. In the process of moving, you will find all kinds of things you didn’t even know you had. Instead of trying to hang on to them in a blast of newfound sentimentality (hey, you didn’t know you had them anyway, remember?), sell your stuff on eBay or on Craigslist! Heck, you can even make it a game to try to earn back that entire monster of a security deposit!

3. Cool workout stuff! Yep. Also in the process of digging through the mystery that is your closet, you might come across something amazing. Like that super-cool ‘80s Jane Fonda-like unitard. Something like that should instantly inspire you to hit the gym and strut your stuff. Because nothing is more motivating than new (or newfound) spandex to get you up and out the door!

Happy Moving!
