Check-in on goals for the month (even though this is pretty much a joke at this point):
- Do not get injured. That would be very bad. I didn't get injured, but I did have a pretty good bike crash a week before my HIM and I got a stomach virus. Lucky that the crash only bruised me. Stomach virus..... not lucky at all on that one.
- Keep working on running endurance and speed. Done and Done.
- Get race-day nutrition ironed out. I've been very bad lately (read: since November) and not drinking everything on my bike. Considering I get 100% of my calories from liquid sources, its very important that I either drink everything, or mix my drinks stronger, in anticipation that I'll not drink as much as I should. HIM nutrition was spot-on. If anything, I had a bit too much but caught it in time. Setting my Garmin to beep at me every 15 min on the bike was the trick to drinking more. Also supplimenting w/Hammer Gels worked well.
- Have fun racing. Its starting to get hot, and generally my fun level is a directly inverse of air temps. Here's hoping I can figure a way around that. Goal met because I had fun at the HIM. Didn't really find a way around the heat, but I modified my race plan and expectations to "finish with a smile on your face". And that I did. And I'm still smiling about it.
- Should I put goal times here? Oh, why not. April 11 Oly race - 3:30; April 25 HIM race - 7:00 (6:30 stretch goal). hahahahahahaha. Yeah, not even close here.
- Recover from the HIM. I'm climbing the walls, but I've been told by many people to "respect the recovery". So I will do my best. Still, its frustrating.
- Theme word for Team Erin is "Chappell Hill". Lots of riding hills to get ready for Boise.
- Get acclimated to the heat. Easier said than done, but well, its getting hot out so I don't have much of a choice here.
- No injuries. And do not let the training schedule kill me. Easier said than done.
