OK, so I am feeling like I am hungry all the time, not losing weight, sluggish and depressed. i think this is all a sign of tapering for the big BUFFALO in 9 days. I remember this! You feel like dog-doo-doo for 2 weeks before the race. There must be a scientific reason for this you know but in this moment I don't care. I did a 30 min run yesterday, went to Cochiti and swam a mile or so. It was SO much more pleasant than last week with the 30 MPH winds and cold. Yesterday was warm, sunny-ahhh a perfect swim day in the lake. I feel like my swimming is OK for the race. I feel more confidence than ever with open water swimming. Now the bike and run I will have to have a new mantra for. "I am fast" "I am middle-aged fast" "I love myself even if I am last" (oh come on!) " My feet are like lightening!" I wonder others tell themselves like the winners?
