I made it to taper. That alone is an accomplishment, yet it has me feeling a little bittersweet about my prep for race day. I'm excited that the worst of it is over, but I still wish that I had just a little more time to get ready. My training for this race isn't what I hoped it would be, but I had to overcome a lot of hurdles even to get this far. I have to remind myself that I do this for fun. It's a hobby. And no matter what happens on race day, that one day does not define me.
Swim - 8450 meters
Bike - 155.58 miles
Run - 23.36 miles
Total = 19.07 hours
The alternating narcolepsy/insomnia phase of training has set in, and I'm far too tired to document all the events of this past week. But here are the highlights:
- I channeled a lot of Honey Badger to get me through the week. I was badass. I ran all over the place. I was cr-a-zy. I really didn't give a shit. And eww, eating snakes. So nasty. If you don't understand, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r7wHMg5Yjg
