I have had some time to reflect on the whole experience now.
Would I do it again? This is tough for me. I say no because I hated every bit of it this past weekend. I’ve realized I’m not built for endurance. Obviously this is why I was a sprinter in college. Fast twitch muscles…
On the other hand I’m so disappointed in myself that I would do it again because I’m better then how I competed over the weekend.
There are a few things I would change with my training.
1) Swimming: I knew it would be hard. Instead of getting frustrated in swimming during training and leaving the pool I would stick to it.
Yes I would just leave after 2- 4 laps and say “for get it”.
2) Biking: I would do more rides outside and not on my indoor trainer.
3) Running: I need to do more than just soccer for running. haha
So, I have realized I didn’t train as hard as I thought I was.Maybe this is why I’m so disappointed in how I did.
Next up is starting to train for the Disney Princess Half Marathon!
Oh and a turkey trot!!
