Cause I’m Crazy, Chase the Police Triathlon

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?

  1. Can I just say your post is seriously making me less nervous for the mini-tri I’m doing in a couple of weeks? I have done a small amount of training, but not nearly enough. Your bravery is making me feel soooo much better about it! I hope your tri goes well!
