I’m down to the final week before my first tri. I’m felling a lot more apprehensive that I have for other races.
I’m questioning my training. Have I biked enough? How will the swim be with all the other swimmers? Have I taken away too much from my running while working on the other disciplines?
In the end, my wife reminds me that I’m just too competitive. It’s not a matter of finishing, I’m confident that I’ll do that, it’s that I want to go out and excel at something that I’m just starting. I need to keep reminding myself that I’ve got to start somewhere, so I can get some sleep over the next week.
