Backwards Triathlon…Also the 40 day Challenge

This morning I decided to do a longer version of my backward Tri’s. Usually in the past times I have done it I would run 2 miles, bike for 30 minutes and then swim some laps. This time I ran a 5K (3.1 miles), then I went into the Cycling Room and did 45 minutes of fast-pace sprinting on the bike and followed that by a quick 10 lap swim (.5K). The running time I finished in 26:35 for the 3.1 mile run and the .5K swim I got done in 10:53. I was OK with my times, when I was swimming I felt faster and thought I’d be closer to 10 minutes or under, but under 11 was fine with me. 


Tomorrow starts the 40 day countdown to the triathlon. I am hoping to be down a few more pounds by then, so I am doing a 40 day challenge. I am going to give up bread (so sandwiches, buns, pancakes  waffles, bagels, etc..) and I am also going to give up the fried food for the next 40 days. It will be my version of “lent” I guess. I love bread and fried food so this will be a challenge, but hopefully the results will be great. The only issue I might have will be those darn drunken nights out of ordering pizza at 2 am, or getting fried green beans. I think I will be able to manage, but just in case wish me luck.
