I've made it to the taper-down portion of my triathlon training. Taper-down is the last two or so weeks before a race when you begin to rest your body by reducing the amount of time you train each day. Taper-down is always a welcome break following peak week.
So I'm enjoying my light workout schedule this week. Except there's one thing I haven't shared yet. That is, as of right now I don't actually get to race in the triathlon I've been training for. Here's the thing. It's a popular race, and I know that, and I've been meaning to register for quite some time, but one thing led to another and, well, the race is full. Bum.Mer.
So I'm doing what I can, like emailing the race director and waiting for a spot to open up, and mostly praying. I know this sounds trivial, but would you pray, too? I really want to race in this race. Plus no matter what, I am making the 7-hour drive to the event since I have coordinated a group of people from here that are doing it.
Hopefully I haven't done all this training to be a spectator!
