A few days ago I was planning this entry and it was all positive news. But since the 6km mark of my Saturday morning run, it has seemed increasingly negative...
My training has been consistently inconsistent over the last three weeks. I have averaged 2 of 3 swim sessions a week, some while battling a minor man flu (it's a real thing!), I have missed all but one Thursday morning bike session due to a required increase in presence in the office at 6:30am. I was yet to make an appearance at the run track in the afternoon due to my knee (which was getting progressively better over the last few weeks) and I am yet to set foot in the surf on a Saturday morning...
With all that in mind I had high expectations for the coming weeks. Everything was settling down and it looked like I was ready to really step it up.
I have ordered my wetsuit in preparation for some ocean swims along with a bunch of other goodies from Wiggle (that place is a trap!) which should be here in a few days (love international shipping!). I had a bit of a trial fitting to make sure I got the right size, then went ahead and ordered the Orca 3.8, which with its extra buoyancy should keep my sinking legs from, well, sinking! Well I hope so anyway...!
The Elite Energy Triathlon series opened up its season pass, allowing entry to a 7 race series across the summer, which I had been contemplating since early days. I jumped on board and grabbed one as it is something that I am really looking forward to for some experience and a challenge.
I knew that it was a lot of racing coming up to an Ironman, although I figure that the experience in those would be invaluable come the big race. It also fit in nicely with some of the longer distance Tri events over the summer. All positive I thought!
