Tomorrow morning will be an early wake up and drive to Harriman State Park for Paul's Triathlon. TriRock was my first triathlon last year, and a ton of fun, but I'm happy I get to watch this year. I will be happy cheerleader girlfriend from tonight until Saturday after the race! This will include not being a total grouch when I need to wake up at 4:30 am, making sure everything is packed, and taking about a billion pictures. Once the race is done though, I'm turning into "looking for a PR on a race I didn't train for" girlfriend. Paul has been warned to watch out for the mood swing.
Goal A: PR of any sort. I will take a .2 second PR. A PR is PR for this race.
Goal B: No PW. I'm pretty sure I can accomplish this goal unless something dramatic (like my leg breaks) and I have to walk the entire race. Even then I think I'd be good .
Goal C: Finish.
So there you go that is the plan for now. I'm currently spending the day deciding if I should wear new shoes or keep the old ones. I'm pretty sure my knee problems lately have been from my shoes being worn down and it is time for new ones. I'm battling with the decision of sucking it up and hoping it doesn't hurt wearing the old ones, and going against the rule of never wear something new on race day (especially shoes!), and lace up the new ones.
You all will be first to know my decision for race day. Well actually, the twitter world will be so check there or tweet me advice about which shoes to run in!
Happy FRIDAY Everyone!
