hmmmm....I'm not even sure what to talk about here. My weekend was a big failure for my workouts.
I went to bed early on Friday at 9:30, but when my alarm went off at 5am I was just too tired. My body felt like it was sunk into my bed and I couldn't move, let alone peel my eyes open. Next thing I know it's 7:30 and my opportunity to ride 60 miles was gone! As I was visiting my family in Fredericksburg, VA later that day and the 6 hour round trip there & back basically sucked all my free time away. Ok, no biggie I guess, I'll just use Sat as a rest day since I did my long run of 10 miles on Friday anyhow.
Better luck tomorrow, right?
Wrong! Sunday I had to teach one of my girls her floor routine smack dap in the middle of the day at 1 o'clock. I knew I wouldn't have time to ride 60 miles, so my plan was just to ride 30 with a 40 minute brick run afterwards. I left with the boys (Jason and Wyn) at 7am. They were riding 70 and I was just going to ride 15 with them and turn around. I couldn't even make it 15 miles because I was feeling light headed and my stomach was really hurting. I kind of felt like I was going to pass out. So at only 7.5 miles I yelled to them that I didn't feel good and turned around to go home. Booo.. I rode a big whopping 15 miles!! And I felt too crappy to run when I got home, so I just jumped back in bed. I did however manage to teach my floor routine and dance around and sweat for a few hours. Which made me feel a little less like a sloth.
I guess this all leads to the every looming back roads century that I registered for. I really only registered for it because I get jealous/feel left out if someone else *aka Jason, in this case* is racing in something and I'm not. My heart is not into this century ride at all and in hindsight I should have just let Jason and his friend ride in on their own. But, with every weekend that passes and every weekend that I don't do a long ride this really becomes more and more out of reach for me to be able to finish on 9/18. I'm not even sure at this point that I will be able to make up for my lack of training and be able to ride it. I have been toying with the idea of just dropping down to the 56 miles ride instead. But, it's a tour and it's going to be boring to ride by myself. Plus, I don't want to look like a wimp while the boys are still out there riding while I'm already waiting at the finish line and enjoying the festivities. Ugg... I don't know what to do?? Help.
Have you ever registered for a race and wish you hadn't? Did you still race it anyhow??
Happy Monday All!
