In my original race season plans I had a triathlon planned for this weekend. This plan was initially derailed by my impending job situation and related financial situation. On Monday I started a new job, but I was uncertain when my first paycheck would be. Weeks ago I had accepted the fact that I would be unable to race my planned race this weekend due to these factors. Yesterday my company surprised me by paying me for my first week on the job before I even finished my first week. Granted it was just the 12th to the fifteenth (my new company has two pay periods , the first to fifteenth and the sixteenth to end of the month) but it was enough to allow me to add my race this weekend back onto the calendar, so this weekend I will be racing in my third triathlon of the season. Best part happens to be the fact I will get to race with my brother in his last race of the season!!!!
Of course this sudden change required an immediate change to my workout plan for the week as I would badly need some rest and a little bit of a cut back on the intensity. I figured of course I had enough time for some brief recovery and now I am laser focused on having a great and fun race. The race is a sprint triathlon with a 400 meter lake swim, 14 mile bike and a 5k run. This race will give me some transition and nutrition practice for my first olympic distance triathlon in October so I am glad I was able to add it back to my schedule. Of course I am uber excited now and I am so ready to race. Til next time.
