I have the first of the Boulder tri series races tomorrow. It is the 5430 Sprint which consists of a half mile swim, 17.2 mile bike and 5k. I have not been training as I should for the last two weeks due to some dental issues related to a surgery and I haven't swam at all. I am trying to have an "it is what it is" attitude about this instead of worrying myself to death about it (easier said then done). There have been a couple of other times where my training has suffered a bit before a race but the race always turned out better then I thought.
Now, the two times this has happened was due to injury or some other issue and not planned but in the end it has worked out. Who knows what will happen tomorrow. I will just be happy when I am done with the swim (I am in a wave with men and historically that has proven to be a rougher swim even when I try to stay away) and get through the bike without a flat (I haven't explored the whole rear tire removal on my tri bike and it looks a bit different then my road bike). As much as I dread the run, I am always relieved when I have made it that far without incident :)
Happy Weekend Everyone!
