Some Forward Progress
More good news: With birthday money, I bought new shoes and some new tri shorts. I had a one-piece suit, but I wanted just some shorts for another option. They are nothing fancy - just black 2XU tri shorts.
Less than good news: I haven't been swimming or biking and I have a Sprint Tri next Sunday. I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally need to get on that this week. I'd say it was the swimming that terrified me most, but I'm not so hot on the biking either. I still need to get my bike in for a tune-up before then as well. I am definitely having some DNS feelings about this race. I think I can do it, but I will be dead last and that is never a good feeling. I wonder if I don't commit and train like I should to give myself that mental "out" for being last or not even starting. I don't know. All I know is that I am trying to make changes and it's hard. I feel like such an ALL OR NOTHING kind of person, where I am religious in my training or I just half-ass it and don't do what I'm supposed to. Maybe I do need a coach to help motivate me? I don't know... I don't know... I don't know... I need to figure out something though.
