I was at Bootcamp this morning. I was supposed to start my running training, but it’s raining. Yes, I know that it could rain the day of the Triathlon, but I’m not starting out in the rain. That’s a whole different post. So anyway, before class while we were stretching someone asked about what I had signed up for. When I told them, they asked why I just didn’t start out with a 5K run.
The more I think about it, the more I realize that probably would have been the more rational thing to do. Then again, I really never claimed to be rational, did I? Yes, I know it’s crazy. Yes, I know people are probably scratching their heads thinking she’s not going to make it. I even wonder it too, but I know if I make it out of the bay; I will finish it. Don’t know how long it will take, but I will finish it:)
I also know that I am not going into this like an idiot like some people think. I realize that I just got my behind off the couch 6 weeks ago, but the Triathlon isn’t till September. I’ve got time. And I am using that time wisely. I am doing Bootcamp classes (until my Groupon runs out). I am running/walking. I am doing laps at the pool. I am preparing and doing all that I can do to be ready. I am putting my big (hopefully to be smaller) panties on and getting ready for this!
My reply to the person today was that I just needed a goal and I really do. If I wasn’t “training,” I more than likely would not have gone to the gym today. It’s a cold, rainy, dreary day and I went yesterday. I would have just skipped it since I’m going swimming tonight. But the fact that I know I only have a limited amount of time to get it together is keeping me motivated and moving. That’s all I can do.
The real question is, what is going to motivate me when it’s all over??????
