Still on Track

I've been updating in the comments of the last post, but I thought I'd put in a post to let everyone know I'm still on track with the final 2-week training I outlined. The only thing I'm missing is the practice race, where I do the whole swim/bike/run. At this point, I don't think I'll do that because I don't want to overwork myself within a week of the race. But today at the pool I swam 1/4 mile (1/2 the race distance) and then rode for 20 minutes on a stationary bike. That felt pretty good (although a stationary bike doesn't feel much like a real bike.) I'm scheduled for a rest tomorrow and then I've booked childcare at the gym to swim on Wednesday. (Perhaps I'll do another transition to bike and maybe even transition to a 5 minute run, as well.) Then a couple of bike rides Thursday and Friday, and I'm off to the race expo on Saturday!! I'm not really nervous (yet). It will be a fun weekend away from home with my friends.

If you are interested to check out the race: and look up the info for the New England race.

More updates later!

Awesome. You weren't sure you'd get the transition work in but you did and sounds like you did well with it. Glad to hear you have more practice. I'll be thinking of you on Sat.!

Go Jill!
