But, I'm just gonna Do it.
I'm getting too old (25 is old right? Well, having kids has aged me a lot more) to worry about failing or not meeting certain standards.
It's an attitude I wish I had 10 years ago. Oh well. I have this now and I'm gonna use it! Whoo! Here I come Triathamom, don't you love the name? (don't worry, motherhood not required (: )
By the way, Triathamom makes it easy to Do it since it is a non-competitive, beginner event with a great emphasis on support. All athletic events should be more like this!
It's perfect for a amateur like me who, on the day of the event, will be sputtering my way across the pool, riding a, not-so-professional-looking mountain bike and probably walking the last stretch of the event.
So this is how an unprofessional trains:
week 1 day 1
-I swam a few skimpy laps in my B.I.L.'s pool. I told you I'm a horrible swimmer. (about 50 yards)
-Rode a bike home from the pool. On an incredibly uncomfortable bike seat I must add. Note: An uncomfortable bike seat for any amount of time is not fun! (about 7 miles)
-Skipped the running for today. I just wanted to get home and off that bike seat. Ouch! (0 miles)
50 yard swim
