I am getting settled in with my training schedule. Yesterday I began the push for Tritonman. A sprint triathlon February 21, 2009 in San Diego. It actually is the location of the first triathlon ever. What a place to start my triathlon career. Yesterday i did a 600 meter time trial in the water. A slow 19:29. I rested a few minutes of that 19 but overall it went well. I missed last weeks swim while recovering from Vegas and felt it in the water. Today I have already been to spin class to get some warm weather (inside) biking going. That will be my routine for tuesdays. Tomarrow I will run intervals. Speaking of running, Julie and I are seriously considering running the Surf City half marathon. It would be tight fit but I think we can make it fit.
I found a diary for triathletes that was written by Joe Friel, the guy who wrote the book I read on traithlons. Its really cool. Lots of details to record that I will be able to look back on and analyze. ALso, it will help me post this blog because it can serve as a template. I find it hard to make time to blog. I am trying to get better at it....SWEET....I want to start ending this posts with quotes here is my first one:
"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
