The countdown continues...
My triathlon is in five weeks, and I'm losing motivation. I think it boils down to the fact that I'm getting increasingly more terrified, and the worse I get, the more I repel. Character flaw, I know. I'm trying to stay at it, but I know it will become even harder next week when I really limit the foods I eat...
I biked about 9 miles today and ran/did speed drills for about 1.5 miles or so. It took me a while, but I guess it went well. Something has just clicked with my swimming though. The past two workouts I've been able to swim 500+ meters of freestyle without stops or turning over. I had been doing backstroke every 200 meters or so to catch my breath, but something just clicked and I just keep going with no problems. I'm still tired at the end, but I can breathe the whole time. I need to pick up a little speed now, though.
Anyway, I spent even more money today and bought myself an outfit to run the tri in! Man, those things are EXPENSIVE! I didn't want to spend that much, but I got what I wanted and wouldn't have been able to save much anyway. I got:
The pink shirt and the solid black shorts. This way, I should get some time to practice in them before the big day!
