Most triathletes have been in full swing with Tri events already under their belts this year. Not me. Most have been swimming several times a week for months. Not me. BUT one month from today I will race in my first Tri this season and so today I will begin my swim.
A gracious teammate scored me some swim passes so it works out to 2 swim sessions a week all the way up to the event. Being that this is a Sprint distance I feel sure that I will be fine and not drown. LOL. Luckily I am a fish in the water and pray that I feel at home as the laps pass.
What I have been incorporating each week is mini bricks. LOVE THEM! Following 1 or 2 rides per week I have a 10 to 20 minute run following. My transition times are not lighting fast but I am faster than a turtle :).
Today I will have a run following my swim session. 5 mile tempo is on the plan.
As I marked off Caesars Head from the list this past weekend I will have to admit I am more focused on my goals more than ever now. Many things need to be worked on but my mind is right where it needs to be...focused and loving it all!
