Whew! Some crazy times lately.. work is crazy and as always, everything has a due date of yesterday. I was on vacation in Tennesee last week – beautiful! I really didn’t train to hard, but I did climb the stairs 5 times to go on some waterslide in Dolly Parton’s Splash Country – does that count??
Really, training has almost become a second job…one that I enjoy, but have a hard time fitting into all of the craziness of normal life and responsibilities…kids, husband, work, etc. Part of me is glad that the tri we’ve been working towards is almost here. I’m ready to just do it, whether or not the skills are there 100%. I was thinking to myself that it will be nice just to work out when I want to and not have the pressure of a tri to train for. But then (about 70% of me) is really looking forward to maybe the next challenge – a 5 or 10K, another triathlon, who knows.
I think the 70% of myself will win out, but right now it’s nice to know that this virgin-triathlon is almost out of the way.
