Not ready - doing it anyway
Saturday, April 20, 2013
In one week (exactly) I will be participating in my 4th endurance event. For the first time, I really am worried that my lack of training will overcome my will.
Fridays are supposed to be Brick days: Bike then run. I was so tired that instead I sat on a chair and drank water while I chatted with my father and sister. (They had cocktails and I couldnt even manage that) We had a bit of a walk about the yard surveying the garden, but I was so bloody tired because of work and the-middle-of-the-night-cough-
that-wont-leave. I squeeze in exercise when I can: runs after work 1-2 days a week, Sunday's at the gym, usually on the stationary bike.
My bike is still in the SHED!! I havent even taken it out yet for the year. Ugh.
Still going to do this duathalon. (2 mile run, 12 mile bike, 2 mile run) but its going to be slow and I imagine quite painful. But I am desperately afraid that if I start making excuses for this one, its the beginning of a long slide downhill to where I used to be.
I cant go back. I'm too proud of how far I've come. Racing is what keeps me motivated at at least moving in place, if not moving forward.
My racing schedule is posted where I can see it. Next race is a 10K in June. Bought new running sneakers last weekend.
See you at the races.
