Mother Nature. Atleast not all the way. Yet you do make it ever so challenging to get my butt out there. Each element on it's on - cold, wind, rain, I could deal with but stick them all together and I am using every cell in my body to stay focused. And sometimes I win and other times as you know, you win. What I am asking for though Mother Nature, is that atleast for the next 2 Saturday and Sunday's you please PLEASE just give me moderate weather so I can atleast feel that I have done my job in preparing for Yeppoon.
I feel ready for the swim, I feel totally ready for the swim. Yesterdays swim session cemented that for me. However, I now just need to be able to transfer that feeling into the open water. I would be ecstatic to hold my 1:20/1:25 per hundred in the open water however reality is - for me atleast, that I need to work on OWS more often and stay out of the pool in order for that to happen. So that is my goal for this upcoming season - to get Open Water ready. One session will be in a pool and the rest will be at the lakes. Anyone want to be my training buddy?
My running is well - moving along. Not quite where I want to be but I will take where I am at. I still have a few good weeks of training left so fingers crossed hey. I am still doing all my core strengthening stuff at home as per Jodie and Nick and attending Core & Strengthening class with Sparta PT. I feel as though I can feel my core muscles becoming more engaged now. Now I just need them to behave when I am running and riding.
