First Tri = SUCCESS

I did it. I finished, and I had the time of my life. I am in love with this thing called the Triathlon. It might have only been an indoor, but it was so much fun. All my Y girls kicked some serious trash. My goal for the swim was 20 laps, I got 21. YAY. My goal for the bike was to hit 6.5 miles, because that is what I was able to do in the Mock Tri's.... once I got on the bike, the tension felt great, I decided to tank the bike part a little and save my legs for the run... dumb idea, I know. I got 5.8 miles on the bike.... didn't place well on this event. Then for the run, I wanted to hit about 52 laps on the tiny little track (18 times for a mile) I was hurting on the run. My legs were tired at first, the kind of loosened up, but my belly up into my shoulders were on fire. I was hurting. I felt as though I was dragging a$$... When I finished, my counter told me I ran 59 laps, I was shocked. I will take it. There were 13 women who completed the race, and I came in 2ND. I was very happy with that. My friend Brenda, who has been coaching all us ladies, came in 1st, and my best buddy Wendy, came in 3rd. It was so much fun. After the race, I decided to do my 10 miler. I was a little worried I would drag because of the tri, but I felt great. 10 miles after a Tri in 1:25.. not to bad.
