The big decision
Well, I did it! I signed up for the very first triathlon of my life! I’ve done a biathlon before, so swimming 1.5km in open water and running 10km is not a problem to me. Riding a bike for 36km is the issue – I’m sure my legs will be wobbly after the swim and bike…. My friend is kind enough to lend me his bike for training and for the race, so now I’m clocking up the mileage and doing combo routines in preparation of the race on 17th Aug. It’s going to be a tough test for me, I certainly want to train for it, and enjoy the 3.5 hour ‘torture’ that I’m going to put myself through….
Well, at 45 years of age, doing my first triathlon, I think I am damn brave….. wish me luck!
