This week I signed up for my first ever triathlon, which is being conducted by the Euclid Family Y. Between May 1 and May 31, I have to complete 112 miles of biking, 26.2 miles of running, and 2.4 miles of swimming. Things like the elliptical machine count towards running, I can accumulate bike miles in spin class, and the swimming is accomplished in 168 lengths of the pool.
Quite frankly, I don't know how I'm going to get it done: are there enough hours in the day and energy in me to accomplish this and the rest of my commitments? It's going to be a challenge for me, but it's not beyond my abilities. I'm definitely going to have to increase my workouts and will enlist my husband's help in mapping out a plan to follow.
When I complete this triathlon I'll have earned a t-shirt (woohoo!), and I'm looking forward to asking for a smaller size. Wish me luck!
