Then I got a jolt of confidence when Coach said I had a strong swim and run and really should be a triathlete. Well, I'm not ready to jump on the bandwagon yet, but I have signed up for one (and only one) triathlon this summer.
To say the least, I think Coach was uber-excited about the prospect of me doing a triathlon and immediately went into training mode. Uh, Coach, did you forget about the 5K I'm doing next week? So, I got on my bike again this week and rode. And you know what? It didn't completely suck. Yes, you read that right. I'm not going to go so far as to say I enjoyed it. Although, it was nice to see my husband....get it? He's training for Ironman and if I want to see him, I better be training with him. Never mind.
I can definitely tell I'm in better aerobic shape and that my quads are much more developed than last year. Don't tell anyone, but I'm kinda excited about my triathlon now. Shhh!!!!
