Oh boy am I slacking on my posts...
Truthfully, it's because while my personal life is rife with excitement, I can't divulge it all publicly. Just yet.
And on the training front, it's pretty much same ol', same ol'. Lots of swim-bike-run. Except now it's taper time. The weekend held the last long bike and run before this weekend's epic Triple T. I'm very much looking forward to it.
I had a bit of a meltdown Sunday night when I got an email from my coach informing me I'm being handed off to another coach. A coach who is a very talented athlete (first amateur at Rev 3 Knoxville kinda talented). But a coach with whom I have not worked. Or trained. Or even conversed. I was feeling more than a little rejected. And deflated.
But I got over myself.
And decided to take the "this could be a great opportunity" and "it's all happening for a reason" attitude.
And, really, right now, I have far too much for which to be grateful. And too much to focus on with the race this weekend. No doubt it will be a total sufferfest.
And my partner is a badass. So, i have that to look forward to.
