Triathlon 101

Today’s morning workout was a nice 3.20 mile run in 31:27 for a nice 9:50 pace. Not a bad pace for me for a easy 3 miles.

I will not be able to get out again tonight because I have a Triathlon 101 meeting with Team Triumph tonight. I joined Team Triumph right before my first DU but other than going on their website I have not had a chance to go on any group runs or rides to meet these fine people. But tonight I should get the chance to say hello to a few. I hope to learn a few things about Tri's and maybe even get some ideas of places to swim in the area.

I do think I am going to attempt my 2nd DU this weekend (nothing like waiting for the last minute). It is a 2 mile run, 16 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run, so a little further on the bike than my first DU but I think I should be able to handle it.

About the bike I really need to take a class on basic maintenance as I don't even know how to change my tire if I got a flat. I know not to smart when you are entering races with the thing. Well I like to think of it as a learn as you go process.

just do it - enjoy the race, and make it a big training day - no stress or worries - probably PR! Good luck!

Go and do it like Bigun said. They are so much fun I wish I could do a race every weekend. Gives you something to look forward to and keeps the training fun.
