Now going into Rumpus, I do not think I actually trained for it. Sure, I swam, spent time on Athena, and of course my true love, running; but I didn't follow a plan and my results speak to that.
I hear you.. I know you are saying.. what? A 1:40 time is great for my first Tri. Despite meeting all of my goals (except transition) for Rumpus in Bumpass (love that name), I KNOW I can do better. My goals were REALLY attainable and exactly what I think a first crack at a Triathlon should be, but there was no pressure. I really didn't try hard. Don't get me wrong, it WAS tough, but .... I do not know how to explain it except, I KNOW I can do better.
|The look of sheer exhaustion.|
Also, part of this training mode is to go back to eating for fuel, not for pleasure. I haven't really gained weight (gained some, lost more) but I haven't been eating enough calories for the training that is required. I got lazy, snagged an Italian ice with the kids here and opted for more than one bacon-cheese burger at Five Guys (YUM!) a week there.... but starting today... I am heading back to the fueling tent.
What obstacles are holding you back from VICTORY?
