A 2 hour session on the program - I always have my computer on count down so I can keep track of the sets Coach plans for me. And if you look carefully at the time counting down on the computer you can see that I have 40mins to go. Still got a ways to go here team. So where is my head at???????
As I didn't know this photo was being taken at the time, I can only guess at where my head was. But I do remember thinking, "I'm over the hump."
- My butt hurts
- It's hot. I'm Hot!
- How much longer?
- Here comes the big part of the set.
- Hang on Sammi you can do it.
- I hate Triathlon.
- Why do I bother?
- I could have slept in.
- This too shall pass.
- So close, and I'm doing it easy.
- I'm hurting all over.
- I feel great.
- This is easy.
- I love my bike.
- I love being able to rock 60kms in 2 hours!
- Oh boy, Ironman is hard work and I have so far to go.
And that is just the half of it. I also sing a lot and it's always out of tune. It's a rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions and it can change by the second. But I do know the satisfaction and feeling of accomplishment I feel when I am done and while I may be exhausted I am content and stronger for it.
