My trainer planted a seed in my head this morning that has been growing and growing all day. Now, it's fully blossomed - there are some leaves, and fruit, and even some squirrels in there..... yup, the idea is a full out plan now.
The IDFA is having another competition in Toronto the week following mine. My trainer suggested I think about entering it as well as the Ottawa show, so I am going to do it!
Two shows, two weeks. I know it's nothing out of the ordinary for many competitors, but it's a bit intimidating for me. Especially since I was all gung ho on being allowed to "eat" again lol. Oh well, what's one more week at this point, right?
The advantages are obvious: you're already in great condition, you've already got your suit (and are probably still tanned), you've gotten a bit of practice and feedback from the judges from the first show and then have a week to fine-tune your physique/performance for the next one. It's not uncommon for people to do even better at their second show because their bodies are primed for it.
The negatives, for me, are mostly monetary: travel, accommodation, entry fees, hair and makeup, etc. But, we'll make it work :)
Oh dear. What am I getting myself into? This is going to get interesting, so stay tuned!
