On Monday, I ran/walked 57% of the run distance.
Today, Tuesday, I swam 80% of the swim distance.
I am in the worst shape with regard to the bike. But the good news is, after writing about my lack of training last week, at least I am now trying. I have a little over 3 months to get ready for this race. I have confidence I can do it – if I keep trying.
Can I quickly tell you about a pet peeve of mine? In the pool this morning, I shared a lane with a man with a speedo. A middle-aged man with a speedo. He HAD to go faster than me. He would swim one lap, fast, fast, fast, and then hang on the end of the pool and try to catch his breath. I probably swam at least 10% more than he did in the same length of time, so who is really faster? It is not that I care who is faster, but I don’t get coming into the pool and beating the living crap out of the water for 2 minutes, only to need to rest for 5. OK – that’s just me.
I must get ready for work now. I hope to have a good day at work.
By the grace of God, I may get to act like a reasonable human being. As long as I rely upon God and not my lousy abilities.
