Training is overrated, just get out there and do it. That’s what all the experts say….right?
A good friend is doing her first triathlon this weekend, and I couldn’t just let her go out there on her own. Okay, I totally could, but I knew if I skipped I’d be very jealous. So last Saturday morning I took an hour long bike ride. I found my pedals, and made it happen. I know I won’t be as strong on the bike, but I’ve got two rides under my belt going into race day.
I will have zero swims under my belt on race day. But that’s almost intentional at this point. I could have gotten a few in, but it never quite happened. And with less than 48 hours to go, I’m going to wait until I’m at the race. I’ll warm up a bit and call it good.
Am I going to be this happy on the finish? Probably not. But I wasn’t an MBA student when this photo was taken, and I hadn’t spent my summer unemployed and working out whenever I felt.
So I’m just gonna go out on the course, and see what happens.
Do you sign up for races on the fly? Or do you only participate when you know you’re ready?
