Tri to prepare for June

First triathlon is in early June

The idea of open water 1/2 mile swim freaks me out
I swam 750 meters in a calm warm pool this week and had to remember in the ocean in June there are waves currents and biting stinging creatures, I might die.....!

I rode my bike today to Trump golf course and back about 30 miles in about 2 hours. Riding is fun but cars and steep hills scare me. And oh yeah I better learn to fix a flat and pop the chain back on or I might get stranded.

Running is my comfort zone but after a swim and a ride I may have no energy left. So far I have not attempted all three activities in one day I might die.......of laughing at myself!


My ironman boss just did another ironman event today she is amazing and I am lucky to have her as my boss! I plan to ask her many questions about my training plans.


I need to purchase new running shoes and a full Tri wetsuit and I would love a Garmin 910!

90 days to get ready

Sprint Triathlon June 9, 2013 is my next goal.


Weekend workouts:
Ran 5.5 miles today and rode my bike 13 miles yesterday.
Swimming on hold due to ear infection, got fullness in my ears last week that would not go away. I went to the doctor I have swimmers ear. So far my longest swim in 750 meters.


 Sprint Distance: 750 metres (0.47 mi) swim, 20 kilometres (12 mi) bike, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) run


Plan work this week is to plan my workouts for the next 90 days.

Exciting to try something different!
