I can completely relate to your experiences as well. It's good sitting in the hot tub at the gym watching other people scampering back to work in their suit and tie.
The real challenge will be when the results turn bad and I get injured I suppose.
Funny you were in consulting. The good thing about it is its fairly easy to go back when you need the cash. Not everyone can handle that lifestyle.
I'm so happy not to have to worry about freaking billable hours.
Try not to get injured...easier said that done! And don't get too pissed off if you don't do as well as you expect in your first tournament as a free person. I think it takes awhile to get over the work stress.
