I have just seven days to pull myself together and get ready for the UCSB Kendra Payne Triathlon. Ever since I hit burnout a little more than a month ago, getting going again has been a huge struggle. At one point, I even decided I was not going to participate this year. Of course, this disappointed everyone, but since everyone is going to be at the LA Marathon, it is not like they will miss seeing me cross the finish line in Santa Barbara. So….Anyway, to help get my head around preparation for the event, should I choose to accept it, I created a mind map showing the event, the final week’s training, some visualization focal points, checklist and nutrition. Seeing all of these things laid out on an image, really helps me to gather and visualize the different areas that I need to focus on. Anyway, if you aren’t doing anything from 8:00am to 12:00pm on March 21st, please come by UCSB and cheer us triathletes on. Some of us really could use your support! With just seven days to go… miracles can happen!
