I know my Husband will highly appreciate the title of this entry!
So one of my faves, Judith, who is a cyclist, left me a note to think about. She calls her blog "The Dreaded Diary Pages", but I don't find it dreadful at all! :) Anyway, here's what she said, and I need to remember this:
"... it is all about getting the job done and sometimes 100% is not your best effort but it is 100% of what you can do that day..."
And thinking about it, that is 100% okay -- that's the part I have to remember. So, thanks, Judith!
If I look back on last week's training I really hit it hard. I gave it my all. By far it was the hardest of my 8 weeks -- and I still managed to get in a little extra swim and bike mileage/time!
So, I have to keep in mind that with proper tapering, rest/recovery and nutrition on race day my performance should be better than what I see in a a time trial smack-dab in the middle of my training.
This week is easy swims, lots of easy biking and a running. Coaches say we have something "special" planned for Sunday, in the way of a run/bike/run, but the details are not out yet.
I also get worried when they use the word "special"
