Yesterday morning, I did a "confidence swim" to see just how long it would take me to swim the required 500yds. I wasn't able to do it all freestyle, but I got it done in just over 10 minutes. I'm pretty apprehensive about coming our of the swim dead last - but my plan is to use these big 'ol bedonk-a-donk legs that God gave me to kill it on the bike. *grin* I've done a kajillion bike to run bricks, so I'm confident that I can run on those tired legs.
Workout today - 30 minutes moderate output on the bike, 3 miles moderate on the treadmill. I meant to do 6 on the 'mill like last week, but I may or may not have had a
I ran in my old Kinvara's for about 100 miles to long...my ankle was starting to hurt on runs longer than 8 miles or so...I got the PureFlow's just in time. Or so I thought. Maybe no running this week - I'll just work on my swimming and rest until race day.
And after my first Triathlon is complete? Well, it's back to running. I have a race in March (10mi), April(10k), May(Half Marathon) and June(10K) that will take up my time until the Cornhusker State Games Triathlon the end of July. That is - if I even like triathlon. I'm pretty sure it will rock my planet like peanut butter in oatmeal, or parmesan cheese on popcorn - but you never know!
I just love the idea of branching out to other sports. Getting to know people that do other things...learning new terminology (wow, just as I was finally getting the running jargon after 6 years!!), and if you love gear like I love gear - look out Daddy - we now have THREE sports to buy gear for.
So, without sounding to sophomoric - I hope I do good, 'cuz the training has been a blast!
Please, Lord, don't let this Momma Cat drown!!
