I am not very good at doing nothing. I arrived back in Knoxville on Tuesday evening this past week, and for two days, I did very little. Snowy weather limited my options for a couple days, but I usually can be pretty ambitious even when I am inside. This week, I took those two days to recharge. I soaked up some time with my sweet wife, and we enjoyed our East Tennessee snow day like we were kids (which in a lot of ways we are)! In total, I went three days without doing anything golf-related, and though I don't like for that to happen very much, I feel like it was absolutely perfect for me right now. I am recharged and as motivated as ever to get back to my kind of work.
Starting this week, I am going to rededicate myself to my Map Goals for the year. That means that I am going to prioritize getting my drills and practice requirements done. In addition to that, I am going to create and commit to a more specific schedule for my workouts. I haven't neglected my fitness, but that has been getting bumped down my list, and I know that I don't feel as good as I can when that happens. I am off from competition this week, and I will get all of my Map Goals done.
I am ready to do what I have done each of the past four years: follow a plan of focused hard work and steadily improve throughout the year. My start on the West Coast certainly wasn't good for me, but I'm not going to panic. I will stick to my process, and great things will happen!
Thank you for following me, and please keep it here for updates during this week of work and for a "what's next" report.
