Well… it’s official. I am registered for my first Triathlon! I’ll be participating in Outdoor Divas, an all women’s race on July 30th, 2017. Better get to training!
I’m not sure whether I’m more excited or nervous… There will be so much to learn in the next six months. Swimming will likely be the biggest hurdle for me. I haven’t been in a pool for the purpose of actually swimming since I was ten! Doggy paddling won’t cut it for a triathlon, so I’ll need to re-learn the freestyle stroke. At this point, I’m not going to drown, but I’m also not going to efficiently get through that 1/2 mile. Any tips or tricks for the triathlete in training?
