Last night I dreamed that I went to today's pre-Nation's tri swim practice in the Potomac (which I will in fact be doing later today).
When I got there and started to put on my wetsuit, I discovered that instead of actually bringing my wetsuit, in my haste and disorganization, I had brought black leggings and a little black skirt. A very cute look, but not quite right for the occasion. Sigh. So I had to go into the skanky waters of the Potomac unprotected.
Plus? The river went UPHILL. Seriously. That was HARD!!!
The good news was that it was so shallow I could walk the whole swim.
As usual I feel unprepared. I haven't trained enough. I focused too much on running and not enough on biking. I focused on swimming and got worse (I don't care if it's temporary, I'm definitely slower!)
Swim: My last 1500 yards in the pool: 49 minutes. So I'm predicting 49 minutes for the 1.5 swim.
Transition: ha ha ha
Bike: 40K 1:30ish
Run: 10K: My DREAM GOAL is 1:15. (Lie. My DREAM GOAL is 1:00.) I'll take up to 1:26 though, cuz that would be beating my NJ time by one minute. My actual, real goal though, is to only walk the water stops, and to not give up and just start walking for no reason.
Fun: Yeah. Please, try to have fun!!!
In sum, here are my Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Happy goals:
Bronze: 3:53 (beating NJ by ONE MINUTE)
Happy: Finished my second Olympic uninjured!
See? Can't lose!
