Here is the weather forecast for Sunday in Lubbock:
So I ran at noon to simulate the conditions yesterday. Man I was hot! Sweating, tired-oh did I mention it was a 30 min. recovery run? Geez! I am having my doubts now as to how I am going to pull this off. But I have done it before..I want to finish. I love the finishing part! All the training and sweating is sure worth it when you cross that finish line. I worked for a group of doctors for a few years once. They were horrible at human relations but as i gave my notice to one of the smartest, jerkiest ones (they are sometimes the best Dr.s unfortunately)-he told me I was too smart for the job. He said I should pick something that seems too hard to do and do that thing. This has stuck with me for all these years. Why can't I do an Ironman? That is a too hard thing-so I did. Why can't I get my Master's degree? That was pretty hard so I did that. Why can't I do the Big Buffalo this weekend when I am not in the best shape? I thrive on challenge ever since Dr> A*%^&hole told me this. I also am trying to prove to my father once and for all that I am good enough! Oh, did I mention he has been dead for 17 years? Oh, so it is the dad in my head, my soul that constantly drives the machine, heh?
