I am actually starting to get a bit fit again!
After false start after false start I am beginning to get consistent with training and working out. It is a challenge to fit everything I want into each day though it is nice to be busy. By the time I head to bed I almost fall asleep before my head hits the pillow.
Triathlon training takes a lot of time. As a former runner I am accustomed to spending long hours pounding away on the trails and pavement to get in shape to race. Triathlon presents a whole other time commitment beyond anything one can imagine. I am not fit enough yet to be able to spend hours on my bike followed by running and stretching and drills and strengthening, but I am starting to get close. My plan to start real training in September is still on track!
I anticipate some difficulty managing between my social life and my athletic pursuits. When I was training hard for running the only thing I had ever really done as an adult was train and go to school/work. I am still allowing myself to skip workouts in favor of going out and having social time with friends however I am skipping second planned workouts. I am managing to slip primary workouts into mornings and around other activities. Pretty soon skipping second workouts will not be possible.
Swim: approximately 2 km open water
Weights: chest and legs
Bike hill workout (first one...)
