The sun is shining, the birds are busy at the feeders and I'm deciding what to do with my day off.
Well, to start off, I'm going to get rid of some of the excess weight that found its way to me during the marathon training which was two months ago.....its been a long enough time for me to hauling this around so I'm signed up and ready to go with Quadrathon's weight loss challenge!
I've even gained weight from when I signed in with Quadrathon!! This is an issue!
Yup, I had lost a little bit with Viv's challenge, but now that I'm seriously (yes I said seriously), starting to get ready for the Try-a-Tri and have to put on a bathing suit....well, let's just say its not a pretty sight and in fact I'm rather chubby!
Middle age spread at its finest!!
The weekend has been GREAT!!
Saturday was spent all day with a friend of mine who is a Half Iron Triathlete, needless to say she got me pumped!
We watched the video's from Lake Placid Iron Man 2007 and 2008! Oh my gawd, it is amazing! I am signing up and will be volunteering for next year!!!
Bet You thought I was going to say "signing up for the Mdot!" Nope, it's already sold out!
Between the rain and thunderstorms we got in a lot of swimming.
I hadn't swam like that in 30 years. It felt great to get my rhythm and relax, I even sort of remembered how to breath both sides. (I use to compete freestyle when I was a lot younger). It was amazing!!!
We swam over to the island and back several times....with the next three weeks to practice, I'm confident I won't have a problem with the Try-a-tri swim....now the bike will be a different story!
I'm totally psyched out about the bike!
You are all very kind to tell me it doesn't matter what I ride to "try", but in all honesty, I'm a competitive snob....if you don't have the "proper" equipment don't do it attitude....
I know, juvenile right?
Sunday was our group run, 16K. This weeks run was really great, everyone was very chatty and running with ease. A few of the group had been to the National Capital's Tri & Du on Saturday and were so full of enthusiasm about their bike and run! It was amazing to hear the stories and of course adding fuel to my fire for the following weeks to come.
Today will be spent tidying up and then either biking 70K, well 35K to downtown and have lunch with a few of the Wooo Hooo's, look around at the Buskerfest and then back.
Or we go biking here at home and getting in another swim.**
The sun is SHINING! How weird is that???
So, I'm not going to waste another moment....hope you all have a great day!
Catch up with you later ~ gator!!!!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
**the Wooo Hooo's are coming to my place for a bike and swim, I love summer!*
