Pushing Myself

Last Monday the coach at the Masters swim class I attend, told me I need to sign up for some races and get my motivation back. She is right. I have just been going through the motions and not enjoying it.
Yesterday I decided to push myself harder on the ride I planned to do. It was a 22.3 mile loop of flat to slightly rolling. I lost my focus a few times and my speed dropped but I finished the ride with an average speed of 18.6 mph. I also got a little too much joy spraying the three dogs that gave chase with Halt!
I plan to ride again today (it was raining eariler so gotta see if it clears up). A little longer so shotting for >17 average.
I also remembered a Du that I signed up for in Memphis last year but didn't race. Going to see if they are having that again. And I am thinking about an Ironman for 2010.
