It's been a long strange summer! Six races down and one to go! I thought by this time I would be in tip-top shape, would be ready to run a half-marathon and would be so ready to do my Olympic next weekend! HAHA!
This week has been my strongest week so far, I rode with some very strong riders < Thanks Kevin and John D>. Kevin really is a natural, I can't believe he just started cycling! They pushed me out of my comfort zone and even though they had a leisure stroll, I had the best time ever on my normal bike loop! I am also enjoying my new 'fit'- unbelievable what a difference some small adjustments to the bike can make! I can actually climb a little now!
This week has been crazy, trying to manage getting home, and onto my bike or into the lake before the lifeguards leave, or the sun goes down. I've turned by bedroom into a transition area, and have now added "put contacts in, change out of work clothes" as part of T1 :).
I plan to ride a nice 33 mile ride tomorrow through some beach towns in RI, then a Bike/Swim on Sunday. Then I'm onto the taper-week. It's sad that I'm approaching the last race of the year, but I'm ready to get back to the gym and ready to start getting stronger! I have a lot more work to do than I thought!
I will be over 4 hours on the Olympic, the run is going to kill me and will probably be half of my time, but I will finish!
