Fourth week of tri training

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Tri training is progressing along nicely. I am getting more and more confident in the water but it is still the hardest of all three sports for me. I am excited about the prospect of race day!!! I love mixing up my training with running, swimming and biking. I keep trying to take this journey one day at a time!

I have been doing a much better job at including fruits and vegetables in my diet. I noticed that I will and do make healthy choices if they are available. Summer is great for watermelon, honeydew melon and peaches!!! Yum, Yum!!!

My daughter will be competing in her first triathlon this weekend and I am sooo excited for her! I will be writing up a race review and posting it after she completes it. It was difficult finding all the right clothing for her to wear. I guess this is only a sign of things to come in the teenage years, which are right around the corner...oh my!!!

Thanks to all my SP friends for their support!! You guys help keep me accountable and I appreciate it each and every day!!! Let's turn this spark into a full blown blaze!!!!!!!! WHOOOO HOOO!!!

  Very exciting!!! I'm on week 2 of Couch to 5K and I have to admit it's hard. It's just never been part of my lifestyle and I'm trying to change that. However, when I see such positive stories like yours it helps me so much.

    Yeah! Awesome post! I'm glad to hear training is going well, it must be that spirit of yours! Re swimming, you'll do great. Just remember I can't swim so I'm looking to leaders like YOU to show me what is really possible when we set our minds to it. Good luck to your daughter and yes, please make sure you post an update to tell us all about it!

Hey, where is your daughter competing? Is it an adapted tri for kids?

Wish her luck! I'm sure she will be great!
