Well, last month I completed Phase Two: do a triathlon. With pictures for proof. :) David even did it with me.
|Getting ready to go jump in a river.|
|Ready and a little bit nervous.|
|Post-race. I felt downright victorious. :)|
Phase Three is quickly approaching. I'm way excited to be done. I already know that I do not want to do another marathon. Ever. It's a serious time commitment, it's really hard on my body, and I still don't actually love running. I can tolerate it fine for up to eight miles or something. My current plan is to maintain fitness by continuing to run 3-6 miles 4x a week and participate in 5Ks, 10Ks, and triathlons as well as an occasional half marathon (maybe).
1.5K Swim 00:22:16.125
Final Time 03:04:23.2
40K Bike 01:24:31.591
10K Run 01:07:39.100
Note: David's Final Time was 02:44:25.8 for the triathlon. He was 31st in his division, and I was 41st in mine. David was disappointed with his run time, but his bike time was great! He had low expectations for the swim time since he's not a strong swimmer. Now he's determined to do it again, only better. :) He's a competitor, as much with himself as with anybody else.
