Taper? What taper?? It is hard to go down to zero when you're not doing anything.
I haven't trained for more than three weeks and I have a triathlon this weekend (750m swim, 20km ride, 5km run). Going from my previous stats before my hiatus, I had much to improve on. Ohhhhh Shish kebab!
Life and work took over. I have transitioned into the next chapter of life over the past three weeks with many lessons to be learnt. In all of that, training and events (I had to drop out of the great north swim😣😣😭😭😭) had to fall wayside.
I had half a mind of dropping out of my next tri. I am in NO physical shape to do well in it. Also, as a result of being on my feet and stress eating, I have put on 6kgs and my affinity to sugar has come back with a vengeance. 😭😭😭😭 Alas, signing up for events are expensive and earning money is hard work 🙄. I have already burned a significant amount of money by not going to one event, I don't want to turn no shows into a habit for me. It's too expensive!
Sigh.... I suppose the rounder and more jiggly version of me is still a shape.... And run, walk, crawl or roll.... I am in shape to do this event.
I am not particularly religious, but if you are... please pray for me, I need all the help I can get!
