So here's my thinking. Maybe this is my season of "less is more" and because I've built a decent "endurance base" starting from January, that maybe I don't need to overdue myself this year to shed time off my races. Wishful thinking, right?
Reason I bring this up is from my previous post. I had significantly less training than the 2009 race, but somehow I managed to take a whole bunch of time off that race. Last season I was killing myself to get the workouts in, and this year I'm not getting them in like I would hope.
That being said, I am very confident about my body, what I can push myself to do, and my overall outlook about racing and this helps keep me focused on the weekly workouts and my goals.
So again, maybe this is my season of "less is more." I never claim to be a fast or stellar triathlete, but I still have fun.
Upcoming race: Sunday's Glenview Sprint Triathlon and I look forward to this race every year. Here's the deets:
- 300 yd swim
- 10 mi bike
- 5k (3 mi) run
