The Itch

WOW, I can't believe that it's been 2 months since my last blog post! Where has the time gone? I promise that I'll get better about posting updates. I hope I didn't lose too many followers...

I have my first Triathlon since May this coming weekend. The Patriot's Half Iron. I missed two Tri's this summer from being sick. However, Kinetic and Patriot's have always been my two "A" races of the year. This course is fast and I'm hoping for a fast time. I went 5:27 at Kinetic, so if I have a good race, there's no reason that I can't get under 5:15. Run, Run, Run. It's going to be all about the run for me on Saturday. I've worked a ton on my running since last December and I'll push myself. No Excuses.

I do have that taper "itch" right now. I wanted to swim this morning, but Coach K said that I was lucky that I didn't show up (she's having me take today and tomorrow off). Guess she knows what she's doing. ; ) It's been a long summer and I feel like a prized fighter right now. Little aches and pains, particularly my left foot has been bothering me for a few weeks, from a summer full of training. It'll all pay off with that 5:15 I'm gunning for.

Time for bed, as Coach K orders more sleep for me.

I'm ready to race again!

I think it is time to resurrect the blog, Pink Feet.
