I’ve decided to run in my first triathlon on May 5th 2013. I am excited and terrified all at the same time so I have developed a training plan that will surely get me ready or perhaps kill me. The Wildflower Triathlon is an Olympic distance which is 1.5km Swim, 40km Bike, and a 10km Run. Not too shabby. Since I am still recovering from knee surgery I am focusing heavily on the swim and bike while building back to a good run capacity. I also plan to add in strength training and the use of a foam roller to make sure I don’t tear another meniscus or worse. Training starts this coming Monday and gets pretty intense towards the end. This picture of December shows the beginning and a snapshot of the end distance totals for all three activities. Bike/Run in miles and swim in meters. Let’s do this!
I am also dedicating my run to No Kid Hungry, a charity that works to help feed the 16 million children who will face hunger this year. You can support the cause at my fundraising page here and you will still receive parts of my restaurant list for each $5 donated!
