I have been feeling the mid summer blahs in my workouts(apparently not an uncommon thing reading these blogs!). My current plan had the Reeds Lake Tri on Sept 8, still weeks away. Well, this morning I took the plunge and added the Millennium Tri to my schedule on August 11th. I already feel my mind racing and my body starting to tense up a bit. My training plan needs to be redone, I need to take my training sessions up a notch, and I am starting to create and work checklists…. In short, this was obviously the right thing to do.
Of course, the highest priority is to get my new running form (from Good Form Running) into some sort of habit so people don’t think I am having some sort of fit (push the skateboard, push the skateboard, reset form). At the very least the temps look like they are moderating at least a little, however I have to believe the wet suit is probably not required this time around.
I would love to write more, but I need to go do some laps….
