1st milestone

Posted on October 11, 2012 at 6:55am 1 Comment

So I couldnt get a full workout in last time due to time restrictions caused by the wifes' work commitment so I just jumped in the pool.

 

Turns out I swam the furthest I have swam since I was a teenager!

I managed 32 lengths of the pool- which is about 800m or half a mile!!!!

 

Sounds so much better when you talk about it in those terms!!!

Committed to a Triathlon

Posted on September 24, 2012 at 8:27pm 1 Comment

So it's silly time of the year again and over the weekend I decided to go ahead and commit to partaking in a sprint triathlon in May 2013.

I planned on writing a post every week or month to help keep me honest with the training

 

 

Today was day 1of a 22week journey,   Started with a 20 minute run and a 200yard…
