Triathlon prep

Shit y'all, my triathlon is THIS WEEKEND. I don't feel ready and I'm not excited like I was about the first one. I'm mostly nervous about drowning in the lake and I know my knee is gonna be on fire after the 11 mile bike ride and 5k run. I'm just not pumped up about it, man. It really took the wind out of my sails when they canceled the swim portion of the last one. Now I feel like I'm only doing this race because I have to to be able to cross it off my bucket list.

But I will persevere and not be a little bitch about it.

Hey, just a question. Whose idea was it to do any outside activity whatsoever in July in Texas? Any chance we can move this shindig indoors? The forecast says it's gonna be 104 that day. ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR DEGREES. What was I even thinking? It's not just my knee that will be on fire, I may burst into flames before I cross the finish line. Y'all tell my kid I love him and that mommy's sorry she spontaneously combusted. 

To prep for the run, I waited until the hottest part of the day to yog last Sunday. It was 100 degrees, and it's been this way for a while so it's not new or anything. Still not awesome. I have to go slow and focus on breathing (twss), averaging about 10:30-11 min/mile, but it's manageable. I'd rather the heat than it be snowing, so I'll deal.

I'm definitely going to bring my new frogg togg to stay cool. My friend brought them after the race last time and it was so amazing that I bought my own. Don't judge me if I can't wait til after the race and I wear it for the 5k. It's hot AF out.
