Nobody Said it would be Easy

So friends, Once again my blog has undergone a facelift! Don't be afraid, change is good...!

So, last night, I definately decided to go to Pub Night last night, at York. I only went with 2 friends cause everyone else was busy. Both of my friends were underage. I got an Orange Wristband, and they got a White one. When they got their wristband, they also had to go a room, and give a breathalizer, and the pub kept their York ID. On the way out, we had to go back to that room to get thier ID back, and they had to take a breathalizer again, and if they had been drinking they would be banned from the pub for that entire year.

So, the pub night itself I thought was kind of lame. It was like the regular club scene but it was soo weird. And the guys were pigs. That is all I have to say. I am NOT saying that all guys are pigs, I am just making a statement that these particular guys are pigs. Yes.

So, whatever. I had a few drinks. I was a little tipsy and a little wobbly but I was still relatively lucid...

We went upstairs to go, and they had to get breathalized again. They came out find, but I asked the guy if I could take the test too! The guy was like "You want to fail?" ahaha. So, I took the test and it read immediately, and I laughed. Then, we missed our bus. There was ONE LAST BUS out of York, and we missed it. And I don't know anyone on res yet!

But the getting ready was fun, and I met a new friend, and that was fun. I think that IF I got again (Which won't be for a long time because midterms are coming up soon...and assignments, and of course, I can't forget training. Soo...)

Needless to say, The novelty is wearing off...(See look, I said that it would happen. It's happening sooner than i thought though...)

So, I have been reading, and I have decided that it would be appropriate, if I joined in OCTOPULUZA (sorry if I spelled it wrong) as well. I am starting a week late, but Sh...23 days is better than nothing.

1. Run 5x per week, Swim atleast once per week on my OWN time. Not during swimming class or AFTER swimming class. Get on the bike atleast 3x for about an hour.

2. Make my own lunch atleast 3 days out of 5. Save money and makes me healthier.

3. No alcohol until halloween.

Yep. That's my goals...

So, there are officially 53 spots left in my half ironman. Yeah. Ha. So, now I have to decide if I am going to register. Reality is that i cannot really afford to register until like January...Student with no steady job and no steady budget, Im telling you,...So this one might be out of the question.
Now, there is one other option...
Half Ironman Canada. It's in Ottawa. I can stay at my Aunts house. It's half the price of Half Ironman Muskoka. I imagine that Muskoka would be nicer though.
It's like August 31st, about a month before. I actually kind of like the idea of doing one closer to home..this onne is flat too...

So, I have until about the end of the weekend to decide. Training wise that just means I get a month less of base training...I am confident I can train for it and successfully complete this thing but..yeah. So...any opinions on this..Should I go with my Original plan or should I modify my plan???

Before I go, I will leave you with a quote that I like

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it, and if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it"

Isn't it nice?

Take care my friends.

Making an Oly your A race for next year might be a good option too! The amount training is very similar. The swim is almost as long, and it is worthy of a first "big" triathlon. You are young, so I think you can do either :-)

Thanks for the great quote. I'm taking that to heart!!

That's a tough call. I would say more training is better even if it's more expensive.

That's a neat way to enforce the no underage drinking thing. It makes perfect sense.

Beautiful statue on the riverfront...what is it called and who created it? What waterfront too?

I don't do tri's, so take my advice with a grain of salt, but since you're new to tri's I would recommend more training.

Guys drinking too much and close to a beautiful racer like yourself, and pigs happen.
