3.2 miles-15 miles- 3.2 miles
Why do these run lengths have me terrified?! I love the Duathlon. It is actually where it all began. See here. I usually do the IronGirl Duathlon every September (or at least I have the past 3 years). The distance for that is 2 miles-22 miles-2 miles. I can do that- easy peasey, right?! (Well except for last year when I FAILED miserably! See here.)
So why is that extra 1.2 miles before and after my glorious bike ride daunting me this year?! Please explain!!!
Granted. I have not put any time or energy into training for this race. At. All. Sure, I have been biking and running (a little), but I haven’t done a brick workout in over a month. WHY? Good Question. This race has just not been on my “A” list this year. It is race number 4 of 5 in the Team Ortho Monster Series. Quite frankly, I have just poo-poo’d it.
BUT, now here I sit with less than 48 hours before the start, and I am nervous and want to kick ass. UGH! Gonna have to remember this mantra on race day and throughout the weekend and potentially a few days after depending on how the race goes 🙂 —>
The best part of this race being over is I can then begin to focus on my two upcoming “A” races for the season. Chequamegon 40 in 3 weeks. YIKES! 3 weeks! I have a lot of mountain biking to do between now and then. AND last but not least, race number 5 of the series, Monster Dash Half Marathon. YIKES! I better up my mileage again on my runs! It is going to be a busy 2 months for this girl.
