This is a chronicle of triathlon training that will culminate in the New Zealand Ironman on March 6, 2005. Right now I am mixing a period of base training with some fun events. During the first week, Rob, Julie, Durdam and I all did the LA Triathlon (more photos) which was fun until the run which was hot and hilly. After holding off Rob until mile 1, I went into the tank and walked a lot. It was nice to see that he was working a bit too (see photo). 🙂
This past weekend, Julie, Megan and I did the Tiburon Mile (one nautical mile from Angel Island to Tiburon). The bay water tastes like _ss and it was pretty choppy. After a big brunch we were back out biking, confirmation that triathlon obsessive behavior is getting started in earnest.
I will soon begin weekly photo posts so y’all can watch my dough boy body undergo an amazing transformation.
Up this week. Monday = strength. Tuesday = run 45 and swim 60. Weds = strength. Thurs = run 30 and swim 60. Friday = spin. And Sentinel Triathlon on the weekend for good measure.
