And that must mean there is racing to be done this weekend!!! Yip Yip!!! In a few short hours, I will be heading to DU to swim the 1650, a race I love to hate. I know what this race is going to bring (i.e. pain) but I am also pretty excited to see if I can bring home a new PR. I keep reminding myself, the first 100. The first 100......not to give away all my "secrets" but really, that first 100 can be a deal maker or breaker. And to top it off, I get to watch (and count for) PIC in her first swim meet EVAH!!! This is gonna be fun.
Of course, I can't just do one event this weekend, so on Sunday I will head over to Littleton and run in the Platte River Half Marathon. Once again, hoping that I bring home a new PR in this one. We will see.....it's been a kind of train-through week and I am really not rested. At all. But I will go for it (per my instructions from Coach CV) and see what the day brings. The last time I attempted this race I didn't even get to the starting line due to a severe case of salmonella poisoning. So, I will not be baking this weekend, or eating any sort of raw cookie dough or cake batter. I will not eat sushi or undercooked meats of any sort. There will be no buffets. I will get to the start line!
And, since it is spring, I can't help but get giddy at the fact that my first TRI is just around the corner....4 weeks and counting. Whoop Whoop!
