Monday I decided that I wanted to run a 5k this summer with a friend to help keep me accountable. I decided to look online to see if there were any in my area. I didn't find but two so far this year. One that is on Memorial Day, which is ok, but it's pretty soon and I haven't ran since November. The other one is in June, so I am committing to that one. We are going to do the Couch to 5k Program starting January 31.
Also in my travels I came across The Dam Tri! Now this one really got my feet quivering! Doing a triathlon would be so totally awesome! I only worried that maybe I wasn't ready for it this year... So I tweeted out to the world if anyone had done a tri? I got some great responses and well, I AM GOING TO DO A TRIATHLON! Thanks @christieo, @barif0815, @imadramamama, @girlsworld! Now I am going to do the Sprinter, so I won't totally kill myself.
Here is what the Sprint looks like:
- 1/4 mile Swim
- 11.3 miles Bike
- 5k run (3.1 miles) Run
- 1.5 k swim (.93 mile)
- 40k bike (24.8 miles)
- 10k run (6.2 miles)
I think maybe next year for the Olympic!I haven't swam in a few years, but I used to do really well when I was on the swim team as a kid. It might take awhile to get my speed back up, but I know I can do this! I do have to admit I have been secretly eyeing the Spartan Race! I would really love to do that, but I really think that one can wait until next year!
My main goal for both of these races is to finish! I don't care if I finish last, just as long as I finish!
So, yep I am putting a lot on my plate, but it seems like the more I have going on, the more things I get done! And getting things done feels so good!!
So what do you think?
D. All of the above
