I dragged myself to the pool last night for a 1500m swim. Honestly, I wanted to quit after 800m. I told myself to make it 1200m. Once I got to 1200m, I told myself I might as well finish up with 1500m. I did it. It wasn't pretty, but I did it. 1500m is the distance I'll swim in my tri. I did it in about 40 minutes last night, but I have a feeling that won't be the case on race day. I'm sure I'll zig zag around, probably inhale water a couple times and choke, have a little anxiety, etc. I'm hoping to finish in under an hour on race day, but I guess we'll just have to see what that day holds.
Tonight I'm riding my bike up at the airport with the new friends I made last week. :) Then I need to try to raise some more money for The LLS. I have only about 2 weeks to raise $1500 - yikes! Here's another shameless plug, if anyone would like to donate go to: My Fundraising Page.
