True confessions...

I have a race this weekend. An Olympic distance tri to be exact. I don't feel prepared. I have done some swimming, a decent amount of biking and have been running here and there but... Maybe the lack of brick workouts or not following a carefully laid out plan etched into a calendar months before is now messing with my head. Who knows.

Theoretically, I have even more time to train now with my new job. Realistically, the extra flexibility in mostly being able to set my own hours has thrown my workout schedule into a big mess. I know, cry me a river.

While I don't feel ready for this race, I am excited for it. I have started looking forward to the big races on the calendar for the fall and feel ready to "get with the program" after this weekend.

Ready or not, Lake Oconee here I come!

Don't psych yourself out- you'll do fine I bet! And it'll make the Peachtree 10K a cakewalk ;)

Sometimes the more time you have...the harder it is to stick to a workout schedule. I have my first Olympic July 8th and my freaking out a little...feeling like I haven't trained enough. I'm sure you will do great and I will be waiting for your recap!

You've done one before, right?
