I feel goooooood.
Fresh and Loose. Restless. Edgy. Impatient. Happy. Light. Springy. I'm trying to chill out but my mind is already racing. My feet are tapping. I wanna stand up and dance!
It's like all year I've been operating under this blanket of fatigue and over the last few days that blanket has been lifted... I think I actually operate fairly well under that blanket so it felt scary to start to remove it... but this morning I was swimming with Nalani and just shocking the hell out of myself every time I looked at my watch and I just said to her, "Wow, this rest is powerful stuff."
3 days til Honu. I'm actually going over to Kona this morning and am looking forward to meeting Jennifer... I've been coaching her since January but we've never met in person so that should be fun! She'll be completing her first 1/2 IM on Saturday... I've got 3 other local athletes racing too and I just have a good feeling that it is going to be a super day all around. I love this race. I feel like I've got a good healthy attitude going into it- I'm confident, yet I know that my age group is full of some amazingly fast athletes so I feel like The Underdog with absolutely nothing to lose by just going for it! So that's what I'm going to do and we'll see what happens. :)
