Ain't so bad...

I feel like I've been posting a lot of "oh, how I had to pick myself up again" stuff...which is a bit concerning because really, I've enjoyed the training. I really do love this sport.

I feel that maybe I've been putting so much pressure on myself to improve over last year, that when I start to have a tough time I start to worry that I won't do well instead of knowing that I'm already so much better trained and fit than I was last year. And that sends me freaking out and swirling negative thoughts in my head...and that is where my battle lies.

As I look back on my posts and relive those moments in my head...they weren't that bad. Ok, maybe the bike accident, being sick, almost getting involved in a car collision, etc...were scary, but all the other stuff was in my head...all in my head.

I have three weeks to get my head really ready for CDA. I have faith that I have trained well and there is nothing now that I can do to increase my fitness or strength. All I have to do now is maintenance, rest, eat well, rest and think positive thoughts.

I have to believe.

YES! YES! YES!! You're there!!! The only other thing??! Write down and study your nutrition. Know exactly how much food you will use and when you will take it. As you know, that will make all of the difference on the run!

It's been fun watching your "transformation."
