6 days to go!

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
