Need to learn

Monday, January 25, 2010

A month or so ago I opened mouth and inserted foot, so now I must train for a triathlon. Yikes! I have not a clue as to what to do or where to start. I have never been a jogger/runner so what do I know? However God is with me and He is leading me down this path, of this I am sure. I joined the SparkPeople Bootcamp for January thinking this will get me back in the game of exercising, which it did and God in His infinite wisdom has put a month long Bi/Triathlon flyer up at the YMCA that I go to in front of my face. So I think to myself, that this would be a good place to begin in my training for the Triathlon I will be forced (by my big mouth) to compete in come October or November whenever it is.

Anyway, I figured that today was a good day to start learning how to jog or run or something, so I went to work where we have a fitness center and no one would be around to watch my poor attempt at jogging. I quite impressed myself. After a 5 minute warm up, I increased the speed and walked for two minutes and jogged for one. I kept that up for a half an hour. WOW!

The only disappointing thing with this experience is the small amount of calories I burned but I will keep going as I must finish the race set before me.

I must remind myself and learn to think before I speak... lol..

    I think this is a fantastic idea! I have thought about doing some sort of walk/run but haven't looked into what there is locally yet. Really need to get going on that to give myself a long term goal to go with my short term ones. :-)
