I'm off to San Fran today for the Escape From ALcatraz race. Yay!
It should be a great weekend with a bit of super hard and cold racing!
I have some family up that direction, so I'm looking forward to seeing them as it has been a few years now.
The week has been pretty good. There, as always, was a bit too much drama around the coaching change, but I've set that aside for the time being so I can focus on the task at hand. I have some feelers out there and am not going to be quick to make any decisions since this is a very important one. It definitely makes feeling out the rest of the season a bit more difficult, especially when there are deadlines for race entries etc., but it will all come together, I have faith.
I think I've been fighting off a bit of a latent illness, perhaps something linked to the travel back from Australia. I have woken up in a sweat a few times this week, more so in the last 2 weeks, but training has been good, so I'm just going to get out there in San Fran and have a go. I've definitely learned to watch myself, to monitor my body and have adopted the philosophy that more is not always better, especially going into a race!
