New goal

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

I have a new goal. The Y where I swim is sponsering a Triathalon in December. I'm not going to be up to it this year, but next year, I think I can be ready. I'll have to jog 2 miles, bicycle 5 miles, and swim 500 yards. I can be ready for that in a year, I think? The jogging part may be the toughest. I have just gotten to where I can walk moderate distances. We'll see!!!

    I did my first triathlon (indoor) last year, and it was a blast! I finished dead-last. (They had literally handed out half the trophies by the time I finished I took so long.) I walked almost the entire 2 miles, so don't think that because it's a triathlon that you have to be fast, or graceful. I wasn't either one. But I finished. And for that alone, I'm proud. You won't know what you're capable of until you try. So GO FOR IT!!! You might just surprise yourself!

    September I did my first Triathlon! I have two planned for this coming summer.
    I read the book the The Slow Fat Triathlete. Get it! It was the most inspiring book I ever read.
    You can do it. And trinewbies.com will help with a training schedule.

    If you get a chance read my blogs from Sept 13 and 14th. I met a woman who thought she was over her head doing this race. She was the best part of the whole experience for me!

    Chrissy, Thanks for stopping by my page.You are such a inspiration to me, I have been slacking off doing my exercising for the past 2 weeks & have been at the same weight for over a month or more. I will start by getting back on the treadmill, thank you!
    I would love to hear from you again, all my best.
