Putting Another Brick in the Wall
I have really felt strong this week with my training. I have decided a lot of the reason for that is that when you compare what you are doing with the hardest thing you have ever done, suddenly it seems easy(er). As tough as this week has been with long fast swims, crazy bricks, and long runs it has been....awesome. Yes, I have actually enjoyed the sufferfest this week. I continue to learn what my weak areas are and I am plugging away at fixing them. Every training session I think about that race day and how it could have been better, and what in my training it will take to make it better...next time. Hmmmm.
Today we ended the week with a long run in the misty morning fog around the lakes. It was hot, humid, and we squeezed a quart of water out of our clothes when it was over, but again in a sick kind of way it felt good. What has happened to me??
This coming weekend I take the plunge back into the open water as I have signed up for LA Tri at False River ~ my old rival and nemesis. I am planning on attacking and destroying this enemy of mine once and for all. I am tired of the battle.
