Three Things Thursday

  1. I unintentionally took today off.  What was that all about?  I meant to swim today, but had just enough puttering around to do that I didn't get in the pool before work.  Then I didn't get in the pool before dinner.  And now I need to get into bed because I work at 5 am tomorrow - yikes.  So tomorrow - the day before my race - do I do a make-up swim?  Or a core workout (which is what's on my training plan)?  Or both?  Clearly the best plan of action is to completely overthink the situation and ratchet up my nervousness a few notches.
  2. I'm getting nervous about Saturday.  Really nervous.
  3. Did I mention the nervous?  Because I have it.  (This is why I love to race.  Do you EVER feel this edgy, tingly, spazzed-out sensation for anything else?  Nope.)

what race are you doing?

Core work to stay sane, nothing serious. Good luck and have a blast at the race. I don’t get nervous anymore, but I did some years ago.

Hey, how'd your race go? Cool that we're in the same area. Any more local races planned. I love my pink swim cap.
