So why was signing up so hard?

Sunday, May 01, 2011

I did it today. I signed up for the the title 9 tri. It was hard to sign up. I am not sure why it was so hard for me to do it. Probably because my mom was a stickler that when you sign up for something that you have to follow through, so I know that I will be doing it.
I am excited to do it again, but at the same time a bit overwhelmed by the work that I know lays in front of me. I have a number in my 199 that i want to reach before i actually start running and that it 30 lbs from where I am now. I am not whining, i do not mind a big challenge, I have done this before and now I have experience of doing it once, so I can move forward and do this again.
I am a bit sore from yesterday, but I knew that was going to happen. Today I am off to do something. :)

    I have been thinking of signing up for 5ks all winter & have yet to sign up for one. Glad you took that step. And a Tri - wow! You Rock!

    Congrats on signing up!!! You sound like the kind of person who makes a commitment and sees it through. Just like your mom taught you! Signing up was hard and the work ahead of you will be harder but the rewards will be plentiful!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm going to add you as a friend. You look like you've been active on Spark for a while and I need motivation from friends who are not going to get bored with this site (or lose interest in their health efforts) like many of my Sparkfriends do!

    Congrats on signing up! I admire your going for it - despite knowing what a challenge it can be. Hope we'll get to hear how the training goes.

    :D My Mum was like that too - wouldn't let me quit - and I've just about managed to get this right all by myself now - it's about time, I reckon

    Should have said in my earlier comment - had my hair trimmed as one of my treats - and spent a couple of hours walking around with a friend at the beach fleamarket in the sunshine today
