I biked at the YMCA for 77 minutes which is 20.5 miles on a random hill course.
Then, I ran for 10 minutes on a treadmill for 1 mile.
It's a punishment, of sorts, maybe, but I have a goal. Hopefully I don't get knocked off track (no pun intended) and I can attend the triathlon at the Wendell Moore Park in Buckner, Kentucky on September 10th, 2011.
I first got interested in triathlons after watching Sonjay Gupta compete in the NYC triathlon. It is actually running in 2 weeks. It sold out in less than 6 minutes. My race only allows 200 participants. The NYC race, which is about twice as difficult as mine, allows 3,000! What an accomplishment that would be! Hmmmm, who knows. I like working out and I need to lose weight, so it could be another goal for me for next year. There is no way I would be ready for that race in a couple of weeks. But, I will be watching. Maybe if I can continue the workouts I am doing, 6 days a week, swim, bike run, then who knows....smile.
I wouldn't pooh pooh the one I am entering, the bike ride has lots of big hills and the run is a combination of cross country and hard surface-it's pretty tough too.
