Yesterday, I was able to get a swim in…first time in a MONTH!! And good thing,…because I have a race in 2 weeks!! It’s been difficult since the boys got out of school (in June) to find the time to get the swim in!! It’s no excuse, but timing is EVERYTHING!! I was able to pick them up at 6 when they were at school (less than 5-7 minutes from the pool). When they are in summer camp (20 minutes from the pool), I have to pick them up at 5:30. It doesn’t make time for a swim. Honestly….I’ve been frustrated! But kids come first, right parents????
I swam about 1/2 mile which is close to (if not the actual) the swim distance in two weeks.
I am racing the Top Gun triathlon –
- 0.25 mile swim
- 10 mile bike (I SUCK at this!)
- 3.1 mile run
It’s possible….possible I might DIE because my only training has been running. And it’s so damn hot, I wonder if I should even count my slow runs as “training”!!😉
After my swim, I was only able to get a “shorty” run…
I’m nervous but I’m excited to get to it and get BACK to it!!! I can’t do any worse than my last one…
I have such RESPECT for all of the working parent athletes that can get the serious training in! I LONG to be that person and I hope it will be soon!! I always need a race to get me back on track and back to the reality that I need to put in more work….
Keep me in your thoughts….
How was your day?
