Getting back on the wagon

Confession time: Though I have been running/walking at least a couple days each week I’ve somehow fallen off the triathlon wagon. I haven’t been in the ocean or even a pool once this year and I’ve ridden my bike once (though that one time was a 50 miler). If you’re thinking, “Why would you swim now? It’s freezing cold and there’s still snow on the ground!” then you’re probably not anywhere near Southern California. In LA yesterday it was quite hot with high temperatures in the 90s. To change all this, over the next two weeks or so I’ll be doing a moderate distance bike ride, participating in the WordPress 5K, and taking on my first Masters SCAQ swim workshop.

The swim workout is the same day as the official 5k run, April 10, so I will likely do my 5k run between April 4-9… although I probably could run on April 10 too if I really wanted to. That is how we triathletes roll!

    I’m not a triathlete but I can relate. I’m trying to go back to running but delayed it to avoid injury. Good luck to you 😉

      Thank you, Pinoyleonardo. I hope you will try running safely soon. One tip to prevent injury is to stretch before and afterward, and warm up and cool down before and after you go running at full speed. I find that running with a buddy also helps, especially if you have less than 1 year of running experience, like me. 🙂
