I think about our upcoming local sprint series and get kind of panicky. I know I got through two of them last year, but they blew me up for the rest of the race. I spent the swim with an obnoxiously high heart rate and felt like I was struggling the whole time. By the time I got to shore, I was exhausted.
So I'm trying to figure out how to get past this. I want to be excited about this season. I'm excited about getting back on the bike, and I'm excited about having a stronger run base and more confidence in that leg.
But I can't seem to get past my nerves about the swim.
