i’m ready to wake up

so my first race since the 100 attempt is next weekend. just a sprint tri. it hasn’t been the most stellar of training cycles but i’ve been getting it done. i’ve done a few bricks. including a long of 30 on the bike followed by four on the run. definite overkill for a sprint but short distance has never appealed to me. i also did a long ride of 40. during which i got stung by a bee … on my crotch! seriously. damn. painful!

last weekend a small group of us drove up to torreya. we’ve done the trip a few times but usually a tad bit later in the year for cooler temps. it wasn’t the most comfortable of camping experiences given the heat but it was fun nonetheless. the elevation up there is brutal! so different than the florida flat we know. longest run i did was 10 which given the heat and the hills i wasn’t too disappointed with.

i’m also trying to mix it up a bit. last night i did orangetheory for the first time. it was different but kind of cool. i’m not a fan of being stuck inside for a workout but it really wasn’t bad. not sure yet if i’ll sign up but i know i need some sort of strength training as a constant and maybe that’s a good start.

overall i’m excited about next weekend. i need that energy again. the camaraderie and competition of race day. i’m hoping it awakens something in me that’s been laying dormant for far too long.

    I just winced at the bee part, ouch.

    I always knew you preferred longer distances but it’s funny I never realized the shorter distances didn’t appeal to you. I know speed is so different than distance but I have a feeling you’re doing to kill that sprint TRI and hopefully get some race energy out of it!
