This week was just . . . yikes. Bad. And next week coming up is supposed to be a taper into Sunday's tri. So, I think Sunday is going to be an interesting situation. I will either be totally slow and horrible due to under-training, or do a great job because I'm so well rested. Hopefully the later. :-)

I have to find a way to get my training in even though I'm working full time now. Lots of people do it. It's just hard for me to justify exercising after work when I haven't seen my kids all day. And early a.m.'s are OK, but last week I was exhausted. I think the key is getting to bed a lot earlier and just pushing through those early mornings. Striving to be better this coming week.
