One week to the Lake Geode Challenge, which is an Olympic distance tri.
Let's take a look at the training totals for June:
Swim 6550 yds
Bike 25 miles
Run 38 miles
Possibly the only thing I am prepared for is the run, and barely at that. When I signed up for this months ago, I had every intention of training well. But life apparently got in the way. Part of me thinks I should just bail. This race is hilly! I suck at hills! What was I thinking?!
But I am going to suck it up. It is going to be a small race, so there is an actual chance of coming in DFL.
But I am a little worried about the bike. Today I hit some hills on my ride on the new tri bike. The bike gets major points for having a lot more gears than my old bike, so spinning up hills is a little easier.
If I manage to get into gear on time.
But I am not solid on the handling yet, so I have this fear of tipping over while going up a hill and humiliating myself. And now that I have a fancy bike, it is like double humiliation if you suck on the bike!
Secretly, if I wasn't doing this with Krissy, I'd probably bail.
I am so not hard core!
But apparently, I'm intriguing to Australians?
Speaking of down under, I learned that apparently men in New Zealand are really into the manpris.
This fact surely must be negated by the cute accents.
