To race or not to race this weekend

I am signed up for the Athletes for a Cure Olympic distance triathlon at Walt Disney World this weekend.  On my training schedule, my trainer has a double brick that is almost identical to the race distance.  I would rather race than train alone (nothing like a training session with a medal at the end).  Who would have ever thought that an Olympic distance triathlon would become a training session in my life.  I have to decide today if I am getting my gear together and doing the race or not.

I did 1 hour 20 minutes on the bike trainer last night and I am starting to realize that I hate that thing.  I watch movies, the news and listen to my Ipod but I really crave outdoor rides.  I ran out of time yesterday so the trainer was the only option.  It just gets so dog gone boring!!!

Ill keep you posted on the race!!

Missy - keep the trainer work up - IM FL is flat and boring - just like riding on the trainer - it will continue to make you mentally tougher to tackle the nice flat bike course.

I agree with Bill. I am doing a 100 mile time trial in boring boring boring flat dallas, TX and I have had many a date with the trainer...knowing it will help. If you are not a fan of 24 or have not watched it in the past, I recommend this as a kill trainer time!! It counts down the hour for you...but you get to watch Kiefer Sutherland save the US in the meantime!! :)
