Contact Cape-Atlantic Tri I did it!

I feel pretty pleased with myself that I was able to complete this. I didn't have any mileage to spare but I did get it done! I'm amazed at the thought of someone completing in one day what it took me a month to do. It did accomplish exactly what I had hoped to get out of it which was to get me back into the swing of things. Back in the habit of working out, and most of all back in the pool! Now to keep it up. I can not wait for a little bit nicer weather. I'm ready to be out and running and mostly outside biking!

Contact Tri Progress

So how am I doing so far? While my miles could certainly be better, this has done exactly what I had hoped it would do, get me back in the grove of training. And thank goodness back in the pool! So far since the 18th of January and just over 1/2 way through I'm at

2050 yards swimming

8 hrs spinning = 80 miles

16.5 miles running

right in line with accomplishing the Iron man distances by the 18th.

I think I have picked an Olympic distance tri that I would like to do Creek Streak Tri-Du-Run Now the only thing holding me back is that I really want a new bike before I do this. While Sissy, my Fuji hybrid, has done herself proud on the sprints that I've done, I'm ready to upgrade to a road bike that will suit my goals (and my mileage) more appropriately.Now I just need the $$$$. I've printed out what I think will be a good training schedule and will be ready to get started at the end of next month. I'm determined to make the jump from the sprints, slow or not, I know that I can do it.

Now I better get off the computer and go get my run and swim in for the day!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday to all!
