{Two Things Tuesday} Long Bike, Bee Sting & 9 Weeks

On Saturday I completed my longest bike for this training cycle.  It was a total of 43 hilly wonderful miles.  I met up with a couple of my tri training peeps at the Saratoga Battlefield.  We completed 4 loops through the park.  There are quite a few hills so it’s a great course to ride.  There are some great downhills accompanied by a few uphills.  Perfect for one … eh, hem… me, training for a half ironman in Tupper Lake.  The ride was rather uneventful, except for when a bee managed to fly at me, get hung up under my watch and proceed to sting me.  That was sweet.  Not really.  And next time, I swear I’m taking pictures.  There are some really great views in the park that I want to share.  So I’ll return, to take pictures and share here! If I must!!

And I’m down to 9 weeks.  Only 9 weeks left to train.  I’m not freaking out yet.  Ok, I might have freaked out a little after the 43 mile bike ride when we ran 1 mile and I was seriously questioning how in the world I would ever run another 12.1 miles.  But I continue to remind myself that a large part of the training is mental training.  Learning to believe that I can.  One mile at a time.  One mile at a time.  So only 9 weeks to go, one day a time……. One foot in front of the other….
