This week marks exactly 7 months (28 weeks) before our very first endurance race!!
I feel so many different emotions, excitement, proud, eager, fear, anxious, and determination.
These next 7 months are going to be crazy!
We have exercise programs to follow specialized for endurance training. I will get to know 5am very well.. get rides in before work and before the hottest parts of the day.
I have no idea how I’m going to do it but I’ll hand it over to good faith ❤️
I’m ready physically, mentally and emotionally for this new stage of my life. I’m not doing it for competition with others, I’m competing with myself and who I want to be. I’m not doing this for what I will get but for who it will make of me.
It’s going to be hard. I will have bad days, I will cry, I will be angry, I will want to give up.. but I will saddle up and ride anyways.
This is going to be the greatest challenge I have ever faced.
And I’m ready. .
Thankfully I have a partner who is also doing her first endurance race, my sister. We only live 20 minutes from each other and her trails are perfect training trails. I’ll be out there a lot.
I also have an amazing support team at home who will kick my butt into gear and help me when I need it most. Along with my friends who will be cheering us on ❤️ We will only be attending one this year. Next year we will add to the list ☺️
I know I have endurance peeps on here,
Any rookie advice for me?? 🙊
