Well yesterday went great - my last long run of 16 miles before tapering. I actually felt great during and after the run. My pace was a little on the slow side but the three of us took turns pace setting and that means sloing down every 3rd mile. I think all of us had a lot of fun yesterday and kept the day light. I myself am looking forward to Salt Lake.
Also yesterday was great in other ways. I went shopping in Colorado Springs. I planned on trying on some wetsuits to see what size would fit me best. I ended up with an awsome deal on a Body Glove full wetsuit. God i love the feel of neoprene..... Weird Huh. I have less than a week left before my first Tri and I am nervous as hell. I am trying to stay focused but I am having alot of distractions with home life. I try explaining to my wife what is going on but she isn't understanding anything. I don't think she ever will. Although I don't want to be the cause of her depression, I certainly will not reject my goals and aspirations. It's sort of like - I'm always looking up, she's always looking down. I just need to keep a positive mental focus and hope she comes around at some point in time.
