Today was the draw for the World Championship at Kona. (Un)Fortunately, I did not win. I'm not sure how I'd feel if I "won" seeing I've never done a full Ironman. I'd be embarrassed to tell people I "won" an entry spot considering how hard some people train to qualify to get to Kona.
Yesterday at swimming we were using flippers for half the session. It was something different and a lot of fun. On the first lap, I swam the entire length underwater with the flippers. Serge yelled at us as we all did the drills wrong but still it was a lot of fun
This morning's bike totally sucked as I woke up at 4:30 am and debated on whether to bail or not. I had a late meeting the night before and was exhausted. I'm still riding inside and just continuing with the drills from last month except I had nothing left in the tank to do the six all out sprints after the one legged drills and out of the saddle riding. Maybe I was still tired from Thursday afternoon hill training. I went to my parent's house and ran in the afternoon around the old hood. It was a great day to run but by the time I got to the sixth and seventh hill repeat, I almost puked....almost. You know when you've had a good workout when you start coughing and can taste the bile in your mouth...........
Tomorrow's run is for 3:15 so I'm carb loading (beer) and its supposed to be windy, cold and pouring rain. I AM NOT HAPPY! This going to be just miserable.
Sorry, could someone tell me why I'm doing all this shit?
