Just checking in so you know I’m still around and kicking.
The triathlon is in just under four weeks now. I am sitting on the edge of my seat reading about Rita of The Giggly Bits as she is writing about her first triathlon experience.
I’m still finding the swim harder than the running and biking, but I guess that is only natural as I’ve only been swimming four eight weeks and have been running for over 13 years. The biking so far just seems comfortable to me, I guess because all of my cardio up until now has been involving my legs. My training schedule called for some swim sprints yesterday morning and oddly enough, I found them enjoyable. It was good to know that I could kick it up a gear.
My eating has gotten back to my new-since-march-IE “normal”. I took off the weight I put on during all those dessert buffets I was faced with a few weeks ago. As goofy as it sounds, I did some daily affirmations in the mirror after the events/buffets were over and I felt like that was helpful. I am back to honoring my hunger and my body.
Here is a photo of me (that the race people took) at the end of the duathlon. I have the timing chip around my ankle and I am just crossing the mat at the finish line. (Sorry, not the greatest photo, our scanner isn’t working.)
And oh, last but not least, I am the grateful recipient of a blog award, which I will happily pay forward later this week or next week.
