It should be interesting considering I've done 0 training for it. Brick workouts, what??
I should be good for the bike portion.. which is good since it's the first event... at least I will start off confident. I just hope I don't fall off or crash into somebody, that's all I'm worried about. That would be bad.
Then comes the run. It's only 2 miles which normally I would be all like 2 miles? pshhh that's like not even a warm-up run. But as you know I've been injured so I really kind of have no clue how it will go.
And then we end with a nice little swim. Actually, I have no knowledge of swimming or swimming lingo so I don't even know if it's a small distance. It could be like a transatlantic distance for all I know (and will probably feel like it). I don't even know how to swim competitively. My style of swimming is more like movement in water to avoid downing, so I have absolutely no idea what to expect. I'm thinking I'll be exhausted and possibly in pain already so I just hope I don't drown. Or kick anyone in the face.
So yeah, pretty excited. I've wanted to do this tri since we volunteered at it last year, I just always imagined I'd be a bit more prepared for my first triathlon, but what can you do? I hadn't registered due to my stupid nagging IT injury, but since I can now do it for free I figured why the heck not?! Even though I don't have a bathing suit. Small detail. I'm going to try running 1.5-2 miles tonight and see how it goes. If I make it out pain-free I'm thinking the tri is a definite GO! And if not, I will probably do it anyway. You are not the boss of me, IT band!!! I might even ride my bike to the park to run to see how I feel running right after biking... that's a brick workout right?
