The start of a new..

I don’t know if I mentioned that I’ve decided to not run the Age Group Nationals triathlon this year, but I have.. I decided that I wasn’t ready for the swim.. Good thing too, seeing as I haven’t been in the water for a swim (minus hanging out with my parents in our lake this weekend on a floaty) since my last triathlon.. (pool on campus is closed, remember?)

But this is the start of a new ‘era’ for me.. I’ve decided to stop getting coached for my triathlons.. While Marie was AWESOME, I’ve decided that I’ve learned what I need to know for this year.. I only have one more tri scheduled (debating one or two more before the end of the season) and then the half in September and I KNOW that I can train for a half by myself..

I love running.. I cannot wait to start half marathon training! I’m scared because I don’t want to hurt myself again.. but I know that I need to start doing my physical therapy exercises again so that I’m in tip-top shape!

I’m also going to start swimming twice a week again, and riding at least once, hopefully more.. If not outside more, I want to get a spin class in once a week! I told you guys that I joined the YMCA in my area.. so I’ve mapped out a plan of action for how to get workouts in.. This is this week!

Some miles, some riding, some swimming.. and RACE DAY this Saturday! Don’t worry.. You know that you’ll get the low-down on the race on race day with my usual race day post! But most importantly.. I need to stay on top of what I’m EATING.. because while I put in the time outside/in the gym.. it doesn’t mean jack if I don’t eat right!528572_384328521597801_572450270_n
