So the other day I received in the mail my Triathlon magazine subscription renewal and it makes me wonder, should I get back into triathlons? I originally got into Triathlons after reading Lance Armstrong’s It’s Not About The Bike. I figured heck it is better to DO it than read about it. I liked the idea of having three events to train for, keeps it from getting boring. If you are bored with one that day you can mix it up with the other two.
Let me tell you, training put me in the best shape of my life. After mourning the loss of my kitty I gained like 5-7 pounds and it is time to start getting lean. Swimsuit season is coming up. I never got into Triathlons to be the best of the best, I just wanted to challenge myself and my limits. It is the most amazing feeling crossing the finish line and knowing you worked your butt off to get there. The race day only lasts so long, it’s the training that is the fun part. So with joining the new gym maybe it’s time to get back to a healthy and fun hobby again. I’ll keep you posted.
P.S. Yes, I looked like a hot mess but getting up at 3 a.m. is not my friend. Crossing the finish line I doused myself with much needed water. What a feeling!!
