27 days until the Triathlon. EEEEKKKK!
I can't believe it is so close. I'm so nervous and excited. Tonight was amazing for me and my training. I swam 1 mile in the open water. Did you hear/see that? ONE MILE! This is huge for me! I didn't give up and kept going. I was the last person in, but I don't care. Three months ago, I could barely swim. I basically did the swim portion of the race and I wasn't dead after it.
I've been getting up early and running/walking before my husband needs to go to work. I need to get back into doing it 3 times a week. Now I need to alternate running and bike riding. I'll get it all done.
My fitness goals will be pretty consistent until the Triathlon:
1. Early morning run at least 2 or 3 days.
2. Eat more protein and complex carbohydrates.
3. Drink lots of water. It's hot out there!
4. Do 1 brick. Bike ride for at least an hour (preferably more) and then run/walk for 3 miles.
For those who don't know, this is my first high endurance event. I'm doing it as a member of Team In Training and raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I've had 3 very close family members die from blood cancers so this is very personal for me. I would never try to attempt a Triathlon as my first event if I weren't doing it for charity.
