I'm really itching

to do a tri. I'm really getting the bug bad. I was reading Vicki's report from her 2 weekend races and I was brimming with jealousy. I want to race. I'm still not sure how I could fit enough swimming into my schedule to be ready to race but I'm going to try. I'm going to give some serious thought to how to rearrange my workouts to accommodate some swimming and more biking. I want to do a race!!!

Okay, weight training is going so incredibly well I can't stand it. I'm pushing myself with my workouts but not so far it hurts. I've also been hitting the intervals hard, really hard. By the time my 1 minute is up I'm pouring sweat and almost ready to collapse. The good part is I'm recovering quicker. When the interval is done I feel ready to drop but within 30 seconds of slowing down I'm recovered and ready to go again. I was told a long time ago that's how you can tell your heart is getting stronger.

Well, things are getting better. I feel lighter, not so weighed down by things. Yeah. Anyway, I have to get some work done, that really is what they pay me for.

You can do it! If I can do two, you can do one! I know the swim is always a big issue for a lot of people, so fitting that in isn't something I can help you with. But I will give you the motivation to at least "tri" and see what you can do. Try to pick one maybe where they have swim angels so if you do get hung up on the swim, you will have someone to help you out. One woman in my age group (who ALSO beat me) had a major panic attack and had to hang onto the kayaks for more than 2 minutes. That didn't stop her from tearing up the course on the bike and run though. So it can be done! And it doesn't really matter what kind of bike you have. Pick a sprint with the shortest distances to make sure you aren't in over your head. I know you can do it! And think of the satisfaction you will get.

Get out there and do a race! Can you do a sprint if not the big ones for now?
You can do it and it is nice to have a challenge to look forward to.
