** You have one more day to enter my giveaway!!
The last couple of weeks have been a little chaotic since I have decided to race the day before I move back to the U.S. I have the Baumholder Triathlon this coming Sunday with a:
- 1200 meter swim
- 32 mile bike
- 8.5 mile run
The triathlon distances in Europe are weird!
There was a lot of cycling, running, and swimming going on last week:
On Sunday, after we got back late from Paris the night before, I drug my husband out for a training ride.
It was freezing and started raining hard when we finally arrived back at the car. Excellent timing…
As you can tell, Steve was not excited about this ride at all, but he loves me so he went!
The movers came two days ago and completely cleared our place out within 8 hours. It was pretty amazing.
Yesterday, I literally spent ALL day cleaning until about midnight. I was tired, moody, and walking around like a zombie by the end. Because I like to leave a place cleaner than how I found it, my OCD tendencies took over. Plus, our friends are moving into our place, and things need to be extra clean for them!
Truth be told, with only one 5 mile run this week so far, I’m a little worried about Baumholder. I’m starting to kick myself for signing up for this triathlon in the middle of moving. What was I thinking? I’m borrowing a bike since mine has been packed and sent off with our household goods already. I’ve had no time to workout this week.
I’m going to just keep telling myself that this week is a “taper” week. It is better to be over-rested than over-trainined right? I guess all I can do is my best on race day, and try not to worry about it!
Any races for you all soon?
