WEEK 12/5, DAY 1: Tri training RECAP, PEAK WEEK thoughts, OMG I AM SO NERVOUS

I've been thinking about the Oly every time I do a long workout, and pretty much all day long, every day. It makes me so nervous I could throw up. And it's still 2 weeks away. I'm mostly worried about my calves staying strong enough for the run. It seems since PT that they're actually MORE sore and stiff. Which makes me even MORE nervous because, after tri training is over, it's alllll runs . . . yes, my training volume will decrease for the marathon, but it's only one cross-train per week. YIKES!

Ok, Meggan Ann, one day at a time. One day at a time.

Here is the recap of my training so far, going in reverse to my very first week. I originally did this for MySpace, for a girlfriend who wanted to catch up on my training, and then decided it would be good to look back over it here with my other training notes.
