…of course, I am starting a little late this year. First triathlon is in 1 month.
Fortunately, I am just participating for fun this year…and to give me a reason to get to the pool and bike trail.
Once the Fargo Marathon was behind me, I got to work setting up a regular running schedule and building up good habits again. But, with a Half Marathon and 3 sprint triathlons coming up soon, I need to ramp up running mileage AND get the cross training going. Two days ago, I hit the pool for the first time since January. Swam a mile and it felt good. Yesterday, I hit the bike trail and completed 32 miles followed by a 5k run. Today, a 15k run completed at the crack of dawn before it got too hot and muggy outside.
Sure, this pales by comparison to previous seasons, but great to know that I can still do this much….
…and I was having fun again! How cool is that?
