I really need (or want, since it's less of an imperative) to do a Warrior Dash report but I'm real, what's that word again, oh yes - lazy. I was even featured in a slide show and everythang! So I'll get right on that...soon.
This Sunday I am doing a mini sprint. I originally planned to totally dominate the Athena category but that was before I fell off my bike and hurt my arm. And this turn of events both depressed and frightened me so I became lazy (er) than normal and didn't train as effectively as I should have. But I'm still going to do the race, which is a huge accomplishment for me. I am regularly one to just flake out if things don't go my way. But how can I flake out of a 150 meter swim/10 mile bike/half mile run? I'm just going to get out there and do it. And hopefully there will only be three Athenas and I can be second or third. I rode the bike course yesterday and, after getting turned around, managed to make pretty good time. Hopefully my luck will hold Sunday.
After Sunday I have a whole summer of super fun runs planned. That makes me laugh. Super..fun..runs....in the summer. Alas I will brave the heat (and desert tortoise comparisons) to participate in the Arizona Road Racer's summer run series. Five runs for $35 is a steal. And I won't feel bad about flaking out on a couple (3 or 4) if I'm only losing $35. I spend that on one trip to Starbucks, hence the reason I need to run. It's a cycle. They also have a walk series so if anyone is intimidated by 16 minute 5Kers (me-not the 16 minutes, the intimidation) you can sign up to walk. I'm just trying to gather some support here. Possibly enough people to carry me back to the car.
