Remember when I said that I had already purchased all the stuff I needed for a Tri? Well, I remembered that last year when I saw all these cute skirts running by, I decided I really MUST have one. Do any of you ladies own one of these skirts? See those cute little buttons on the waist band? Those are actually to fasten your race bib to! How cool is that? (and Randy, a tri suit is just something that works for swimming, biking, and running... so you don't have to try to change your clothes during your transitions.)
So, I meant to do a bike/run brick yesterday - but I only did a bike ride. I got up at 4:30, made a lemon meringue pie for the picnic I was attending later... then I meant to get my work out in... however, I didn't realize I didn't have vanilla in the house, so that added an additional 30 minutes to the pie preparation time. I went to church at 8:30 and came home and hopped on the bike. By the time I had completed 8 and a half hilly mountainous miles, it was so hot that a run was Out of the Picture. Today is a rest day.
I have printed out the training schedule posted on the Tri for the Cure website and I think I will try to follow it - within reason.
I am excited about training for a tri and I am really really glad I decided to do it. Thanks to all you bloggers for the encouragement.
