Crazy

I think that I am crazy! Excited but crazy. Last week my Hubby asked me if I wanted to join him in training for a triathlon. My first thought was "Are you joking?" then he told me about triathlon sprints, the one that I am training for is 1/4 mile swim, Easy I did that in 10 minutes this week at the pool, I know its not in a lake which it will be on race day but I still have 7 months until then. Next is a 9.6 mile bike ride. This is probably where I will struggle the most, mainly because the course has a ton of hills. The last leg is a 2 mile run, again not my strongest sport at this point in time but give me the 7 month and things will be better, not to mention that this is the last part and I can walk if I need to.

So for the next 7 months these will be my friends. I have really enjoyed this week. I have actually run on a treadmill, not just walked and I really enjoyed being in a pool and swimming. Biking was OK but I will enjoy that a lot more when I get a pair of bike shorts with the padding.
