there is a sprint tri in aug ;p
i really want my hubby to do it ;p
He is soooooo scared. b/c he can't swim well.
it's 700m swim, 12 bike, and 5k run
he doesn't want to do it bc currently he can't swim more than 2 laps without stopping.
it's about 14 x back and forth
so i told him:
(since he encouraged me to do the marathon)
how did i start to run!?????
i didn't just RUN a 5k, 10k, 13.1 or 26.2
i ran 30 secs at a time!
my LUNGS were exploding..... those 30 sec was definitely harder than the marathon!
i had ZERO muscles anywhere ;p oh the aches ;p
i told him just swim 2 more lap each time...... 14 laps is just 14 mins of swimming!
(ok, so he has drowning fear, breathing scares....but who doesn't!)
He said: BUT that's not nonstop! i gotta swim nonstop for 14 laps!!
I said; Yeah, but one doesn't just run a marathon! it took me 1.5 yrs to get here!
He said: true.....
Right now he is 'thinking' about it ;p
just thought I'd share
i know i can do it, but i would have just come back from asia....jetlag
he wants me to do it....
i rather it be him now ;p it's an 'easier' sprint.
in a pool, and parking lot ;p
remember: YOU wIll NEVER know TILL you try!!!
