serious angst

Sunday, September 02, 2012

it could only be 7 days and counting to something i haven't ever tried. thank you for the you tube videos. i am grateful i have had skill drills. i am thankful for breathing drills. i have had no practice with a wet suit. nothing. i just want to come out on the other side intact. knowing me...i'll end up renting a suit and i'll add minutes to my transition but oh well. i think i could survive on what i had but the trouble is that it is colder where i live...with regard to where i am swimming. hotel room. gah. i have my bike and helmet inspected. i have swam plenty. i know this. i just have to coach myself on it. 3 months of swimming. this is NOT new. but i feel so new. i have done a duathalon. i got through it just fine. really i did. we are *just* adding swimming to this. this is not 100 percent new. sigh. this will be a good experience. i just need to get through it so i can know i have been through it and i'll be okay. right? right.

    I'm right there with you! But you are much more prepared than I am... (((*barf*)))
Oh well, here's to our PR's! DLF beats DNF which trumps DNS. That's been my mantra. (((hugs)))
