It is amazing what a difference a few minutes makes
This morning I woke up before my alarm. I then made the fatal mistake at looking at the time – 3:58 am. Somehow that just seemed too early to be awake. There was a 3 at the front of the time. Oh my word. 3 am! Who in their right minds gets up at 3 am to train – 4 am just seems so much more respectable….
Talking about training… Ironman South Africa 70.3 or more commonly known around these parts as “The Half” is in less than 2 weeks. I have been so worried about the cycle that I kind of just forgot about the other two disciplines… I have not done much swimming or running and am now beginning to stress a little bit about it. Especially the swim – there could be a possibility that I don’t even make the swim cut off and am not allowed to continue on the bike. Then all my cycle training would have been for nothing!!!
Well, not exactly for nothing. I have loved it, I am so happy to be back out on the road, getting fit again. I feel good about myself and have been spending a lot of time with my sister. But still – I would like to finish this race!
