Why I Chose A Triathlon

I was pretty tired and sore from the swim last night. It was good to get a run in today – the weather was great. Also, I need practice working out back to back days. Usually I take at least one day off in between. Tomorrow morning we go out for our first ride as a group.

Today’s workout: 4.75 mile run.

First Swim

I’m exhausted. Swimming is definitely going to be the hardest part of this for me. I’m going to have to take my friend Steve up on his offer of extra swim practice.

Today’s workout: 550 meter swim (with lots of rest every 25m)


It was about 30 degrees this morning for my run out by the Frio (Spanish for cold) river.

Today’s workout: 5.5 mile run.

Week 0 totals: 12.5 miles running, 11 miles biking.
