|Made my pace but it was seriously ugly.|
Thankfully my voice of reason was just a phone call away. G managed to kind of talk me off the ledge. I still have some lingering doubts (mostly to do with my knees) but realistically it is what it is. All I can do is go out and do my best on Sunday. If I get my gold medal, amazing. If not, that's life. There's always next year. That being said, I'm going to take it easy the rest of this week. And by easy, all I really mean is that I'm going to skip my Thursday run and I'm not going to do any legwork at the gym. Yup, I'm living on the edge baby. I had some A.R.T work done on my legs today and no surprise, there were a ton of knots in my upper quads. It was pretty painful but I'm sure by tomorrow I'll feel better. Who knows, maybe this is just my head playing it's silly games with me. After all, my horoscope today forecasts nothing but amazingness over the next little while.

If it's THIS good it HAS to be true right???
In other exciting news, I have officially committed to doing 6 triathlons in my favourite race series this summer. I'm doing 5 sprint distance (750m swim, 30km bike, 5 or 7.5km run) and one Olympic distance (1500m swim, 40km bike, 10km run). It's been ages since I've actually done an Olympic distance race so this should be interesting. The ultimate goal at the end of the summer is to do Muskoka 70.3 (2km swim, 94km bike, 21.1km run). BUT that will be dependent on my training partner. She has not committed yet and until she does, I'm not putting my money where my mouth is. Either way it's going to be a busy summer. Thank goodness G likes to race just as much as I do!
Have you planned out your summer races yet?
