Hawaii training: Excitement, and some guilt

Next week, the CNN Fit Nation Triathlon team heads to Kona, Hawaii, for a week of intense training? Follow along on The Chart and on Twitter, @CNNFitNation

Only a few more days until the CNN Fit Nation 6-pack gets together for the mid-way trip. It will be great to see everyone and discuss successes and struggles. Of course, it helps that we will be doing this in Hawaii! I have seen the schedule and we will not be spending a lot of time sitting by the pool and sipping mai tais. We will be working out a lot – swimming in the ocean, running on the island and some bigger bike rides. We have all been working out a lot at home and it will be great to do it in Hawaii. I think it will be a way to recharge our energy and motivation us for the final push to our goal.

Obviously I am excited about the trip, but I do feel a little guilty about going. My wife, Missy, will not be coming along. We decided that it would be tough financially and difficult to be that far away from the kids. She will be there in August for the NYC Triathlon. Although she would love to be in Hawaii with me, it will be great to have her there for the big event and the culmination of the challenge. She will be part of a group of friends and relatives that will be in NYC to support me.

I look forward to seeing all my fellow 6-packers, but I still can’t help but feel guilty about taking a week away from work and family in Hawaii.

    Yeah, good luck! I hope you are ready for the ever present vog we have, rude drivers that will try to run you off your bike on Queen K Hwy and in Kona, and trashed waters off the pier from the tsunami last month. Oh yeah, $5 gal of gas and out of site food prices. Train over in Hilo,Hawi, Honokaa to get away from problems like that, although a bit more wind and rain.
