Only 6 more days to prep for my first Duathlon! I am very excited. I am feeling better. I had a miserable cold last week with two sick girls at home so I could not do much training. I was starting to get very nervous because I haven't been keeping up with my exercise program with all of my traveling. Last Monday, I ran 2 miles in 33:15! But then the rest of the week was a bust for exercise.
Today, I ran 1 mile in 15:59 then biked for 25 minutes with my daughter in the trailer behind me. I couldn't figure out if I was struggling because of Erica, the run before or the horrific wind... Or maybe all of the above. I figure I'll do a brick tonight without Erica then do another one tomorrow morning. And maybe Wednesday morning before leaving for St. Louis for 3 days. We come back on Friday. I register on Saturday and the big race is Sunday!!!
I am really hoping for a great race. Meaning that my chain does not come off and that I actually the finish the 2 mile run, 22.7 mile bike ride, and 2 mile run. Wondering if the 2 1/2 hour time limit on the biking portion includes my transition time. I don't think it will matter one way or the other. I wish I could wear my head phones. I love listening to music as I run/bike. But the rules don't allow.
Remember, if you haven't donated, I am still looking for donations at www.active.com/donations/choa2010/rrudeck.
