Hi Terry! I just saw that you're doing Cayuga Lake. Bummed now that I didn't sign up for it this year!
Did I see somewhere that you're self-coaching this year? How is that going? Have you found yourself telling yourself to screw yourself at all?
Hi back! Yes, I am self-coaching myself this year and assisting in developing a few others. This is my "recovery" and "family" year, so this Olympic event will be my big A-distance race aside from a few other different goals both in cycling and swimming. As far as telling myself to "screw myself", I do that practically every time I go out the door these days and am learning to dial it back again. My fitness is not quite where it was last year by this point in my Ironman training and I am always drawing negative comparisons to that fact, something I have to learn not to do and simply focus on what my over all goals are this year...specifically, "fitness and fun". Apart from all that, things continue to go well.
How about yourself? Any further thoughts to doing another triathlon this year? I'm sure you can still sign up for Cayuga Lake(I haven't officially registered yet myself).
