My training has suffered immensely. I haven't swam more then twice in a month due to the two rounds of stitches and my running has been minimal at best. I haven't ran at all in almost a week due to the most recent surgery (rise in blood pressure causes swelling and additional pain) and my cycling hasn't been that great either. So here is the thing. I have an Olympic distance race this Sunday and feel very unprepared. I rode the bike course on Sunday so I know I can get up the insane hill they are having us climb but my swim and run are going to be pathetic. I have even thought of not doing the race but am hopeful that I will feel much better by Sunday. I am also stubborn :) I have a 70.3 race in August and I am very worried about that as well. I guess I just need to take one day at a time.
In other news, I did manage to ride the MS 150 during all of this. It was very inspirational and totally worth doing. I hope to do it again sometime when I am feeling better.
Here are some pics from the MS 150.
This was at the start of the event. I just had to take a picture. Empty port a potties.. really???
Day one. The climb was at the end and the drugs were wearing off. At least that is my excuse for the look on my face.
I was really ready to be done but figured I would put on a happy face
The finish line!
I hope all is well with everyone. I hope to catch up on all your posts soon!
