|My inspiration to always be active|
I have absolutely loved the training, though admittedly I didn't follow the plan I had exactly but more as a guideline. Some of the terminology I wasn't familiar with and felt embarrassed to ask anyone. A few days before the race I'm kind of cursing myself on that choice, in case you were wondering.
I'm nervous about the race. I mean, I'm not nervous about drowning (I can swim now!) and I'm not nervous about the distance. What I'm scared about... the thing I'm always scared about before a race is that I'll disappoint someone. That I won't swim or bike fast enough and that I'll stop to walk during the run. I thought that by not really talking/blogging about my race (if you've read this blog for any length of time you might remember that I used to blab about every detail of training and my pre-race goals, etc...) that I wouldn't feel like this because this race would be JUST FOR ME.
The truth of the matter is that I don't want to care about how long it takes me to cross the finish line. How do I make my brain and my heart actually believe that?
