Swimmy this morning to wake me up and get the nerves down before tomorrow triathlon ... which will be my FIRST TRIATHLON EVER :)

5 * 100 free

Paste from my blog.

My first Triathlon is tomorrow

Tomorrow is a day that I will remember for the rest of my life. I have my first Triathlon ever. I did some Duathlon over the last year and some running races, but I never did a Triathlon. 

Back last year when I was completing my first relay Duathlon I was looking at those people doing Triathlon and I was really impressed. Tomorrow I will be one of those persons, and it is really awesome just to think about it. 

Back in September I couldn't swim more then 50 meters. Back in July last year I was not running at all. And back two years ago I was not even riding a bike. It is amazing how far I have come from two years ago. I was just sitting all day not doing much, and now look at me. I am proud of what I accomplished and tomorrow will be one more milestone, from potato couch to Ironman. 

Tomorrow I will swim 750 meters, ride 20 kilometers and run 5 kilometers. I know I can complete all the distances without any doubt but I am still nervous about it. 

It is probably because this is something new, that I have never done before, that it makes me nervous. It a good feeling though, nervous good ;)

I will make sure to get as many pictures of that first, so I have many memories to share with anyone who wants to hear about them. And to look at them later to remember how I became a triathlete. 

Now I am off to the pool for a quick swim before work, just to get my body moving a bit. The last week has been really slow training wise. With my ITBand injury and the bad weather I didn't have the chance to get out much sadly.

  • Walking
  • 30m

Instead of riding my bike for 60km or so I went and walked the dog for 30 minutes. Damn I am getting lazy :o

Ride after work for sure, it is supposed to be close to 80 today

Update - Why do I love this place, the winds are 32mph right now, damn with a nice 80 I would have like nothing over 5mph  No way I will go ride in the traffic with winds up to 45mph :( Sucks since the weather was gorgeous, so instead I sat on the deck and had a beer ;)

  • 1h 15m
  • 2200.00 meters

Lots of drills

Swam a 1000 meters in 22:43

Today I will go swim at my last Master's class of the winter, who knows everything might get right at once tonight and I will start swimming a km under 15 minutes Tongue out
I must still be dreaming, yeah that must be it since it's still early. 
Now I need to make sure that my ITBand get fix fast to start my marathon training. New York is 5 months from now, not that far away
