On Saturday I will be completing my second triathlon — the 1st in 2013! I did his same tri last year as my first ever. I loved it! Somehow my whole summer filled up before I could get in any others last year though — Bummer!! This summer I am hoping to at least get in two. Maybe the next one will be an olympic distance. 🙂 baby steps.
This weekend’s race is a sprint distance including a 0.5 mi swim, 16 mi bike, and 3 mi run. Last year this race took me 1:42:16 to finish. Since that time, I think I have improved on both the bike and the run (I’m running faster and also did great on my Tour de Cure ride). Swimming on the other hand has taken a back seat lately — though I did get in the pool today for a short “shakeout” swim. I’m still thinking I can do better than last year.
The temperature on Saturday is supposed to get up to 100 degrees! Wish me luck that I don’t melt into a puddle before I finish the race.
Have you ever done a triathlon before? Did you like it? Loved completing this triathlon last year, and I’m so excited (but also nervous!) for this weekend!
