At the turn of the new year, I participated in my second indoor triathlon through Lifetime (awesome race series to get started with triathlons, if one so dares – see if there’s a race near you!) I placed 10th for women’s overall, and found that to be encouraging since my training was fairly weak. Some event photos of my sweaty, dragged-outa-bed self are in my Gallery.
I signed up for a triathlon to do on my 29th birthday on May 1. I will be at the top of my age bracket but I plan on training hard to hopefully set a PR and beat some of the fit early-twenty-somethings. For this event, the swim is indoors, but the biking and running will be outdoors. See what I’m doing here? Slowly working myself up to that terrifying, frightening, outdoor open water swim.
I plan to update here and there during my training, but more so on my internal transformation rather than hard numbers and six-pack abs (although I’m hoping they do make a return!) I’ve done a lot of mental and emotional healing over the past year and a half, and training for this tri ties in to that for me.
