I've noticed a pattern to my training -- during the first week of a build, I am absolutely tuckered out. POOPED. But, I've learned if I can just hang on, the second week is much better.
This last week, I said a lot of "Suck it up, buttercup" and "HTFU" to myself -- especially on Satrurday's brick when I had to run as hard as I could off the bike...and of course the wind was just a howlin'!! I swear, my legs were pumping like mad, but I was hardly moving forward. Hahahahahahahah!!! When I turned around, I almost took off and landed in Saskatoon. (If I owned a cell phone, I would have called Jenna mid-air to let her know when I would be coming in for a landing.)
Fortunately, Mike was out on the deck having a cigarette,and managed to jump up and grab my leg and pull me down out of the sky. LOL!!!!
Later on, the wind quieted down so I could concentrate on HTFU during a hilly run.
I am pretty excited about this --- last week I did 17.6 hours, and it's going up from here! :) :):) :) :) :) :)
