I'm begrudgedly following the whole "if it's below the neck stop exercising" thing. The fact that Husband threatened to take my front bike wheel, running shoes, and goggles away if I wouldn't promise to rest may have influenced me slightly
Anyway, I'm a little freaked out about the upcoming metric century in two weeks. It doesn't help that I'll be out of town Wed-Sun. When I get back it will be only 6 short days before the cycle tour.
Husband says not to worry. All I have to do is start at the beginning and keep going until I get to the end. And it's not a race, its a tour. Just go have fun. Piece of Cake. Sounds good on paper, but despite his well-intentioned words, I can't help feeling under-prepared.
Well....it gets better.
There's this little 10K the day after the bike tour that I had wanted to do. Wanted. Past tense. That was before signing up for the metric century.
Husband is perplexed as to why I might not want to do both in the same weekend. His argument is that I've done stuff like this all in one day before, so what's the worry? Of course, that's not quite true. The longest all.in.one.day was oly tri distance. This particular bike ride is 2.5 times that distance!! Not quite apples-to-apples.
Long story short, the 10K is now on my calendar as well. Good thing they have a fitness center at the hotel. I surely wouldn't want to be under-prepared for *two* events in the same weekend.
