Thank you all so much for your support. We started out with a fundraising goal of $5,000 and we hit that in April. Then I bumped it up to $5k, then $6k, and then to $7,000.
We are currently at $7,750!
Time to bump the fundraising goal up to $10,000. With 41 days until Ironman Maryland, I know we can do it.
As for training, last week was great. I capped the week off with a 90 mile bike on the Ironman Maryland course.
Yesterday I did an open water swim in nearby Lake Linganore. I was hoping to get a 2 mile swim in but I had to cut it short at 1 mile. I made an error in judgement and decided to wear my wetsuit but not knowing the water temperature, I quickly over heated and it ruined my day. It’s unsafe to wear a wetsuit in water temps above 80 degrees. I don’t think the water was that warm but it wasn’t far off.
Big lesson learned.
I was a little over confident after last weekend and this week has put me back in my place.
Reminding me to take things one day at a time and to always live in the moment.
