And so it is Official!
OK, here's the update, after the open water lake swim, JD, was really pumped, as I, that we swam 1000m and he asked if I was going to do the Cap Tex Tri. This was my original plan back in Feb but when the layoff came, financially things changed as you all could imagine. After filling JD he understood. Later that afternoon he messaged me a few times and was again asking about Cap Tri. I finally told him that I was just not financially read and it may be just a little sooner (or not enough training) in the amount of time that was left, Race day is May 28th, Memorial Day.
The next text I got from JD: Sign up! Bring me the registration and I will reimburse you..Let's do it together! No way! I replied, are you serious? Yes, he said, Let's do it!
Now I was really flying but was nervous and scared to sit in front of the computer and fill out the active.com registration form. Now came the moment of truth, time to click the submit button. (OK, now is the time that my mind starts going off and it goes like this: the swim, the bike, and run WTF! I can make the swim but now I am not ready for the bike or running as my distances have been short with the colds I have been fighting and now I only have about 5 weeks! Oh Crap! What am I doing? You can't do this, you don't have enough time, maybe if you had 8-10 weeks and were healthy. And besides you are doing the Silverlake sprint the weekend before!!! Hello! You think your an amateur pro! Wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Just then I clicked the button! Yup, Congratulations you have been registered! (during this time JD was texting me asking if I had signed up) Well, there it is Official as can be. Text JD and told him I'm in but we are not doing it together because last time I looked Triathlons were individual, haha, and that he just wanted me to feel the pain with him, he laughed.
So now the training has changed a little from the side bars and will be updating.
I'm totally excited even if I only have about 5 weeks. It's all about fun! and fun we shall have!
So today's training is a 20 mile bike ride but it's totally storming here so it looks like it will be on the trainer.
