11 Days. 11-flippin-days. One-One. Eleven........Wow.
So last night, on the schedule, was a swim. With my shoulder pain, I wanted to test it out. I was prepared for a 100m swim or to go the 45 minutes. I was really hoping that it was going to be a long-ish swim. I hadn't been in the water in a week and need to get the feel again. The first 25m was okay, te second 25 there was some pain, the 3rd there was a little more....the 4th, there was none. Either adrenaline kicked in or whatever is causing the pain worked itself out. I had small twinges of pain during the swim but nothing that lasted longer than a stroke or two.
In looking at my schedule, I'm behind....I know this. So....how do you make up fitness in 11 days?? Here's a hint.....You Can't. But what does my simplistic mind say? Cram....Cram like you've never crammed before. LOL
So....I got home and decided on a quick spin. Did an hour on the trainer and felt pretty good. But, why stop there, I'd already completed 2/3rds of a tri.....why not go full on tri mode. I strapped on the shoes and jogged 1.65 miles.
The 1st Annual Brad's Made Up Triathlon is:
17.25 Mile Bike Ride
1.65 Mile Run.
T-1 is a drive from the pool to the house
T-2 is a tiptoe walk into the master bedroom closet to get running shoes
Finishers Swag features a warm bottle of gatorade left over from my daughters soccer match on Saturday and a 100 cal bag of popcorn.
Entry for next years race will be $40 and will not inculde a shirt, any support on the course, and/or finisher prizes.....or pictures. Basically, I'll just take your $40.
Aiight boys and girls.......off to some meetings then hopefully the vendor that we're doing the meetings with will spring for lunch.
