Final two weeks of Competitive stage.
Starting to feel the anticipation! Who am I kidding? It’s been here for weeks now.
Only thing that’s changed is the worry. Not so much worried about it...I ‘know’ that I can do it. The real question is how well can I do it?
Over the weekend, I went to the race site. Looking over the Lake, I watched the waves, stared long and hard at the buoys bobbing up and down and thought “I can do that”. R.e.a.l.l.y, I KNOW I can do it.
Not saying it’s going to be cake or anything, but I can do it.
Also this past weekend, the Mrs. and I went out to St. George to do the Dual at Sand Hollow. The main point was just to see the landscape and do whatever I could do to reduce the stress for the future Olympic Tri.
Let’s just say that it was NOT flat. Despite rumors that said otherwise there were some (ok two) BIG hills. 6% for 1.5 miles. Not life threatening but not flat.
The whole time I was out there, I didn’t care. I was out there just to see the terrain, enjoy the company and have fun. And boy did my time show it. One of the slowest, worst times ever.
But I DON’T CARE.
I know that I can do it.
And as my Sunday cereal spoon feed education has taught me “ …knowing’s half the battle.”
