I haven't raced since November 1, 2008, the day for which it will always be rememebered: I became Iron.
I haven't swam in a race without my wet suit since July 13, 2008. Yea, we won't go there. Thinking happy happy thoughts about this upcoming swim. Six hundred meters is... short.
I have a new racing motto for 2009: Breath Later!
Coach and I have crafted a well thought out race plan for the High Falls Sprint this Saturday. It sounds like this: go, go, go!! LOL... Basically, it boils down to this.
1. Swim like there is no bike afterwards
2. Bike like there is no run afterwards
3. Run like you stole something
After reffing soccer matches all weekend (3 games a day for 3 days), my legs were pretty tired last night on my run. I'm not sure what that means for this weekend, but I plan to give them some TLC for the next two days.
I am so excited for this race. It feels like the first time. Come Saturday, it's just me, my bike, and my shoes. I don't have any expectations. I am planning to donate a lung to the cause.
