Now please do not think that I haven't been working out or doing anything triathlon related over the past few weeks. I certainly have, but I changed my attitude towards training. I really tried to focus on the things that I enjoyed. For example, I was supposed to run 2-3 hours for FUN on Saturday. So I ran 10 miles, which a little less than 2 hours, but running 10 miles is fun. I love running, but running more than 10 miles ALONE, isn't really enjoyable. So I decided to stick to what was fun for me. I took my time and took everything in- the planes at Gravely Point, the cute puppies on the trail,
So where do I go from here? How am I going to get through the next 10 weeks of training? Am I still excited about IM? Over the next 10 weeks (which will probably fly by), I am going to keep my eye on the prize. Everytime I don't feel like working out, I am going to think about how it is going to feel when they say "WHITNEY, YOU ARE AN IRONMAN". Am I still excited about the race?? Hell yes!! I am really freaking excited. I just think that the everything going on over the past few weeks finally hit me, hard. I needed a little break. But I have my mojo back. :) Let's do this. Rangar relay is this weekend. I will be spending the first weekend in October doing an 18 mile run and 110 mile ride. October 8th and 9th, I will be working instead of racing Waterman's, but I will squeeze something in. Then I will be tackling the mother of all workouts, 20 mile run and 120 mile ride the weekend of the 22nd.
69 days until race day!!
