Methinks I'm a triathlete at heart

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Last Sunday I swam. Today I did again, more crawl this time, and in fact, targeted as the first workout of a beginner triathlon training plan. Yesterday was the first bike ride of the season. I find myself starting to toy with the idea of repeating my "baby sprint" triathlon outing in July.

Not that I suddenly have a ton of time to train... but it makes me smile to train. It makes me smile to move. Having a "race" in mind helps me remember to actually go do it. So, with the CSG triathlon (July 28th) in mind, not signed up yet (and maybe won't, but while there's training going on there is hope I might)... time to start rotating sports.

A week 'til the half marathon, folks... my cross-training is a form of tapering for that outing, too. Is it just me? Or is there the hope of Spring busting out around Spark?

Life is good, people. You are worth living it for. Spark on! emoticon

    Cross-training may be easy on the body, and may help with avoiding injuries . . . but the bottom line is, what is your passion? If your passion turns out to be triathlons, then go for triathlons! The rational reasons will all stack up and sound compelling, when you're training for what you're passionate about.

    I can only dream of doing a tri, since I can't swim. Just the thought of swimming gives me an anxiety attack! (I have to face this fear, but it's a tough one!)
