Sunday wil be my third triathlon. It is the Subaru Women's Triathlon in Naperville,IL. I have alot of mixed feelings going into this one:
*It will be my longest open water swim (750).
*It will be close to home with no travel. Quite a few people that I know will be there competing and watching.
*I know the course and for the first time on the bike and run I will not be facing hills.
*I am starting to have expectations of time goals and I don't want to fall into that.
*This is my last tri befor Steelhead HIM. There is only 6 weeks left.
Besides my OW swim on Monday, it was a good week for training. I backed it down alittle but not alot. My legs are not as tired. After Sunday, the next 3-4 weeks I need to push myself harder and increase my hours.
This weekend also is our Relay for Life.Our team will set up at the local High School track with many other teams. It is a celebration of life and a major effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Our team has raised almost $2,000. Alot of the participants spend the noght at the track and someone is always walking. My favorite part is the survivors lap. The most touching part is when they read off the names of the loved ones who have died due to cancer and light candles around the track. It will be a special night.
