Uh, I might be CRAZY!
Last time we chatted I was home from Palm Springs and training for my first 70.3...but things have changed since then!
After a few weeks of great training I realized this year was NOT my year. After battling my son one morning about getting ready in time so I could get my workout in...I realized that there is no reason to rush this and I can wait ! Wait until both kids are in school FULL time.
So with that...I totally relaxed and I know that my 70.3 will come, when it's right for my family!
I had signed up to do the Dilettante Olympic Tri June 15th since that was in my training plan for the 70.3, but since I decided to hold off on my big race...I decided I would totally drop all races this summer!?!?! Even my yearly race, Rock-n-Roll Seattle! Is that even legal in the running world?
That was all months ago...
But then something changed...
I got my confirmation sheet for RnR Seattle last week...and I saw something interesting on my confirmation sheet...
What the What...
Now I was regretting not running RnR and was totally wishing I had trained for this race! I mentioned my dilemma on FB and a dear friend said I should just join her and her co-worker for a fun, easy pace run! I can even run/walk it! Ok, ok....I can do it. It will hurt, but I think I will be happy to get the medal I paid for...I mean I earned?!?! Honestly I was really struggling with paying for this race and not running it or really...not getting a medal! I have run this race every year, how could I miss it?
Then my friend was talking about training for the Dilettante Tri! I told her I would take her on a bike ride through the course and heck...lets swim too! Full on TRI Training! Through some text she told me I was doing the TRI! I have always told people anyone can do a SPRINT, even if you haven't trained for it...well....let's see if this is TRUE? I will get back to ya! It felt great to get on my bike and swim! I think I can do it...my time won't be great...but I love the sport. Plus a great group of blogging gals will be there and I hate to miss out on a good time!
Ok so 5-months of not training! I have been doing a little CrossFit, but not much running...and NO LONG DISTANCE runs! And now I am doing a Tri in less than a week and half marathon on less than 2-weeks.
Have you ever done this before? Am I crazy? Can someone come pick me up at mile 3? The sprint Tri will be great training for the Half, RIGHT?
