Fading

”Hey, have a nice weekend ya!”, a good wish we normally give to or get from people, friends, colleagues.

And how was my weekend?

It was a great one, but I’ve been a B-A-D boy.

Bad boy for did not go out that door to run, to train.

In the morning, the blame was on the nice cooling rain.

Later in the evening, the blame was on the comfy pillow who kept me asleep soundly for few hours.

It’s not my fault, right? It’s their fault! The rain, the pillow. I was not guilty.

But I am feeling so guilty now. Miserably guilty.

I thought I have the confidence to go through Desaru long distance triathlon this coming weekend, but now that thought is slowly fading away.

I am not putting any big target for Desaru other than to finish it injury free. However, I wish I have another two weeks to train so that I can cross the finish line – smiling.

Now, I can’t really remember why did I sign up for Desaru long distance triathlon.

Should I toss a coin now? I still have 4 days to decide though.

Only you can decide. It is a 7-hour race Nik, thats 2 more hours than the marathon we did in June (maybe you can finish it in 6 hours?). The training should be as tough as the one you did for marathon.

Not trying to scare you my friend, but you should by now at least know/have the confidence that you can complete it.

My advice, if you think you have train enough, just go out there and do it. I know you can make it through.

By next week, I hope to read your race report. Good luck!
