Well its the week of the Triathalon

This coming Sunday I will be participating in my very first triathlon. I started my official training for it back in the second week of January. I would like to think I have come a long ways.

First of all…I don’t run nor am I considered a runner. I ran the CR Flood Run back in 2009 (7miles) but that was a half ass run and walk combo. Before that I only ran the mile in middle school gym class, or if I had to run laps in high school sports. I was thinking back to Jan when I started training. I ran one mile on the treadmill to get my time. It was 9:30 …last week I ran a mile in 7:30, a whole 2 minutes faster. Not that I can average that for 3.1 miles but its taking me 26:35 to run 3.1 miles. So I think I have vastly improved my running ability since January. So much that I don’t mind running anymore and will most likely start signing up for some 5k runs Herr and there.

Swimming….uh well swimming is swimming. In January I was like running will suck, I will do great in the bike and swimming well I can do that easily…WRONG-O! I can’t swim as fast or as good as I thought I could.  Funny thing is back in high school swim class the teacher told me I was fast and should go out for swimming…I guess since I haven’t swam laps since high school my speed and decreased. I think I got it down now though …but I don’t think I could go longer than the distance of .5k in this sprint triathlon.

Biking I have been doing for years not to worried about that since I also been doing cycling classes all winter at least 2-4 a week.

I am about 90% prepared going to go rent a wetsuit today. I will be 110% ready by Sunday and ready to not kick everyone’s ass (cause I know that’s a dream) but the goal is to finish without stopping or doing anything stupid!

BRING ON THE TRIATHLON!!!!
