If At First You Don’t Succeed, Tri, Tri, Again


Haven’t written in a while but I am still here. My very first  Sprint Triathlon is scheduled for August 3, 2014 and I am getting ready in my head. Now you know that I have talked about this for a long time. First steps were hard. I spent the winter having an on again off again swim season. Our pool was down for some time and I was lazy when it was up. I found out that stamina leaves in a short amount of time. It’s May and I’m really not ready to do the 300 yds yet. On top of that I bought a bike two weeks ago and had to deal with my serious fear of riding. I have been on the bike a few times but there is still a lot of work to do there. I had a needle in my knee yesterday and hope that after the three shot series I will have less pain in it which will make walking easier. I will be walking the 5K part of the Tri’s. Anyway I’m back and will be talking about my road to Triathlon in the upcoming days.

  1. Good for you!!! You have some challenges you are working on, but you can overcome them. I signed up fir my first tri before I knew how to swim and didn’t have a bike yet. You just have to remember that it’s YOUR experience, and that will allow you to enjoy it more. Even though it’s called a “race” don’t allow yourself to get into that pressure. Just enjoy the fact that you are doing it..which in itself is a major accomplishment. remember..you are inspiring to people just by training for this!!
