PR or Panic

Until tonight I was going to reveal my newfound panic about my 70.3 training.  We are about 12 weeks out, 12 friggin weeks!  I've decided to throw it all into question and seriously began thinking about abandoning my training to go in a new direction.  No logical reason, all driven by sheer panic about the above statement...12 FRIGGIN WEEKS!  My problem lies in I'm lacking peer support with this training. Plenty of assistance can be found by those who race at levels far beyond what I'm looking at.  So I'm never quite sure if I'm doing enough, too much or way too little.  That was until tonight happened....

I unleashed the beast at the ramble...yep....I said it.  Hello 8:44 pace for 5 FIGGIN MILES!  No, I did not cheat and whip out a skate board for the last mile or 2.  It came from no where and was likely a fluke but I'm about to get 8:44 tattooed on my ankle, I'm that pleased/proud.  So that must mean that something is going right with my training, right???  Except that I'm training for a 70.3 and not a 5 miler.

So, I'm still undecided about what to do with my panic or not to panic?!?!?

Miles trained: 5

Don't panic! This is an issue I almost always struggle with, except when I've hired a coach. It's so easy to second guess yourself. Stick with your plan, continue to keep track of your workouts and your progress and you will be able to add this training cycle to your repertoire of What Works and What Doesn't Work. Obviously, something has been working- congrats on your 5 miler!
