The bumper of The Wagon, that is. I haven't fallen off but I'm very close. These past few days have been tough to get a workout in because of my own mental hurdles. Sunday was just overall frustration. Monday was the beginning of a bike ride that ended early and failed miserably in anger and frustration. Yesterday was better as I got in the pool, but I still feel like I haven't had a good workout since The Longhorn Run last Saturday, and even that was only two miles. I've decided this week is a mental health week. And of course, after my progress the last three weeks it's only natural that I would come down and end up frustrated.
I'm hoping to pick back up with hula tonight and running Thursday and Saturday. Sunday will be a big day as I'm doing all three legs for 30 minutes each. Gasp! I hope I don't pass out and die. I'm kind of looking forward to it. Sunday is Mother's Day, and while I think of my mother every day, this Hallmark holiday throws it in your face more. I'll be able to push through a solid 90 minute workout knowing that I'm doing something that would make her so proud.
In exciting news, I signed up for an open water swim clinic at Lake Pflugerville. I do have open water swim experience (see: Freedom Swim. In brown water. Ugh), but my utter lack of the ability to swim in a straight line when I'm not in the pool lead to a lot of energy wasted. With the swim being the first part of the tri, I can't afford to waste energy. Hopefully this clinic will give me a bunch of good tips for focusing during the madness that is the swim portion.
That's all I have for now. I've been trying to post this post for several hours now but work has been insanely busy. Hopefully hula will be fun tonight.
