Swim, bike, run. Repeat.

Hi all, I'm Emily. I'm a 28-year-old attorney who spends most of her day behind a desk and has the body to show for it. Since joining Sparkpeople in February 2007, I've lost nearly 50 pounds, dropped four sizes, and gone from couch potato to triathlete. I still have quite a bit of weight to lose so I figure I'll be a work in progress until at least February 2009, but I'm loving the way I'm feeling and looking these days, so I'm OK with that.

Hi all, I'm Emily. I'm a 28-year-old attorney who spends most of her day behind a desk and has the body to show for it. Since joining Sparkpeople in February 2007, I've lost nearly 50 pounds, dropped four sizes, and gone from couch potato to triathlete. I still have quite a bit of weight to lose so I figure I'll be a work in progress until at least February 2009, but I'm loving the way I'm feeling and looking these days, so I'm OK with that. Some long-term goals are to run a 10K in under an hour (second attempt at the end of July got me to 1:04), complete an Olympic distance triathlon (going to have to wait until next season), and run a half marathon (scheduled for October 11). Depending on how the half goes, I'll think about trying a full marathon, but I'd probably rather try for a half-Ironman triathlon, which I now have scheduled for June AND July of 2009. Hmm. Maryland or Rhode Island?

And oh yeah, I'd like to lose another 25 pounds and be a size 8. But those goals have become secondary to improving my overall fitness and becoming a faster multisport athlete, which I think is a good thing since this whole weight loss thing is so frustratingly SLOW.

I like the idea of 10% goals, so here are mine:
1st 10%: 202.5 (MET! June 4)
2nd 10%: 182 (MET! Feb 12)
3rd 10%: 164
4th 10%: 147

My Goals:
My overall goal is to get down to something around 150 pounds and to maintain it. I was close in college because I was a rower, but I injured my knee and kind of gave up on rehab, which started the slow weight gain that has led me to my heaviest weight in January 2007, just before I joined SP.

My Program:
Triathlon training means my workouts include strength training with a personal trainer twice a week, swimming two or three times a week, spinning once a week, biking twice a week, and running two or three times a week. The running has to become more of a priority as I work towards the half marathon in October.

Personal Information:
Live and work in Hartford, CT.

I would offer you my guest room, but with the room rates so low, I'm even considering moving to one of the Strip hotels! It would be cheaper than my mortgage!! I hope you guys can come out. I 'm having a b-day party on the 17th.... should be fun...
