This week I went from sheer anxiety to a sense of calm. I had some great workouts and felt myself ready to race. I yearned to bike longer, run longer, swim longer. I assume that is a good sign.
Chris and I went to the bike shop the other night to have Roostom take a look at it. I've been reading "Zen and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance" and worked on cleaning the bike, checking the tires, etc, but still wanted someone experienced to take a look at it. As Chris put it: "This helps you feel more in control during a fairly uncontrollable situation. You know, you can have brand new tires and still get a flat". You'd think he is the shrink in the family (LOL). Anyhow, Roostom looked at the bike for 5 minutes and said it looked good. I loved the reassurance.
Tomorrow we are off to Vermont. I am hoping to have a short swim on the course when we arrive. The more comfortable I am with the swim course, the better. On Saturday I'll do my workouts in the am and then Chris and I will sit around and read (and eat) the day away! Aww, I am so excited.
So that's it for me, see you on the other side. I can't quite believe that this is happening, that I am actually doing a HIM! But I AM, I AM!
