Countdown to Triathlon - 30 days
Thursday, May 09, 2013
Sh!ts getting real now!!!
I kind of feel like I'm slacking this week. I am working out, but I'm not doing as much as I have been doing, but that will change next week once my training partner is done with her duathlon and can focus on the tri-training again.
Last night we did ride for a little bit, but it was more of an 'easy' ride so she doesn't get worn out before her race. And that's fine, since I know that next week we're going to be getting a little more kick-butt about the workouts.
But in general I'm feeling a lot more confident in my ability to actually do this. My biggest concerns now are transitions and making sure I don't get lost or anything on the course. And then things like needing to know how to change a flat or fix my chain if it falls of - stuff like that. So I'll be working on learning that kind of stuff over the next few weeks.
I noticed yesterday that the spin classes have done me some good for sure in my ability to get up hills without feeling like I may die. Then again, the hills last night were a lot smaller than the ones I'll ride in my race... but hopefully I can do those as well without too much issue. We rode the route that my 5K will take, so I could see that, and then we checked out the transition area too.
And on a good note I'm in a much better mood today than I was yesterday. Thank goodness. I don't know what the deal was yesterday but I was all sorts of crabby.
Tonight is my next wax appointment, which is good because things were getting a little on the hairy side. LOL. Also means no workout tonight, but I did get in a JM video this morning and a 2.5 mile walk with the dogs. So I'm OK. Not yet sure what tomorrow holds - I THINK I'm on my own tomorrow for working out, but will confirm that with my training partner tonight. If so, I may go swim tomorrow after work. I haven't done that this week at all, and really need to do so.
