I am BURSTING with excitement!
At the blogger lunch yesterday, Ryan, Megan, and I were discussing how I like to run but cannot swim, Megan likes to bike and cannot run right now do to her hamstring injury, and Ryan is a great swimmer. Thus, a TRIATHLON RELAY TEAM was born!
We decided to spontaneously sign up for the Moss Park Triathlon, which is happening this SUNDAY!
I will be running 5.15 miles, Megan will be biking 40 km….
… and Ryan will be swimming 1.5 km! Wow!
Of course, this means my training plan will be pushed up QUITE a bit. My goal was to have 5.0 milers under control by July 31, but I feel ready and am confident I can handle the race on Sunday! I had a 4.5 mile run planned for this Sunday, so 5.15 miles isn’t too much of stretch.
Here are my eats so far:
Lunch was a platter of hummus, crackers, cucumbers, a carrot, and a pickle.
And I’m slowly snacking on a cantaloupe stuffed with Oikos yogurt and granola.
Back to work I go! I’m so glad I have a race to look forward to now! It’s definitely going to help get me through this week.
