Yep, I think I will give it a shot!
At our weekly sales meeting at Golds yesterday we met with Joe, our new triathlon trainer. Now I have NEVER ever thought about doing this simply because #1 I despise to run…I mean like really really hate it and #2 I can’t really swim. I can float and swim UNDER water but I have NO clue how to swim above water without looking like a fish trying to save its life in shallow waters…you know flopping around frantically? Ya thats me. What interested me was two things. First this guy was well old enough to be my dad. He’s done a LOT of marathons and tri’s. Second he mentioned a sprint tri. Hmm..shorter distance, still can muscle train, and of course a challenge! Why not! I am the most nervous about the swim part. For reason mentioned above and of course because you swim in lakes (or here reservoirs) WITH fish in it. F R E A K S me out like you wouldn’t believe! Ugh so 2 fears to get over! They are starting the training I believe in January with the goals of doing one in June or July.
Here’s to another challenge! *cheers*
