Lazyman Triathlon at the Y..day 1
Friday, February 04, 2011
Yeppy, the hubbie and I signed up for a triathlon at the YMCA and wow its starting out pretty good....Well, the tri, is for the month of Feb...started Feb 1 to Feb 28th....and the first man and woman in each event wins.....wow, we have some real competition!!!
There are 2 different choices, a Olympic distance or the Ironman distance...we decided the Olympic distance which is bike 56 miles, run 10 miles and swim 2 miles...now the Ironman distance is bike 112miles, run 40 miles, swim 5 miles...whew, not going to happen soooo we decided the Olympic distance... and we are really having a good time....this weekend, our challenge is to try to do the swimming (i am not a swimmer...lol)...but you dont have to do all on the same day...for the swimming 71 laps = 1 mile...well, my attempt is to complete 10-17 laps for saturday and sunday, to try to complete 1/2 mile this weekend....well, this is truly a challenge, but the fun part is you get to loose weight, meet new friends, and come out a winner at the end of your 28 days no matter what...and for me, I have a wonderful support group, especially my hubbie....makes the world of a difference....so I will keep you posted how its coming along....
