So I'm really pumped--just got back from our Second Sole time trial and found out that my VO2 is indeed pretty damn high. I had it done a few years ago by my boyfriend of the time, now husband, when he was in his Sports Management classes. It was 42 then. It's now up to 44.6 according to two different formulas that we used tonight, which for my age and gender puts me in the 90th percentile! Yahooooo!
Now, if I could just reach my so-called "scientific potential" that these numbers predict, I'd be in business. That is a whole different story! ha ha
Talked to a 2-time IM MOO'er at the meeting...he freaked me out a bit about the bike hills. Ugh. I'm such a fricken hill slug. I HATE THEM. He said what I already know, though--I NEED to hit the hills hard this summer. The sooner, the better. Now it kinda makes me want to live on the east side, as that's where all the hills are in this town. Guess I'll be spending a lot of time back and forth on I-90 from April on....
That's the biggest worry for me...I wonder if I can really make it on the bike. It's my weakest link. I guess the numbers say I can...I just need to get a little confidence and do some ass-kicking training on (gulp) hills to get there.
Sure wish I could double the swim and run, and cut the bike out or maybe at least in half....hee hee...I guess that's why I don't make the rules! :)
