I'm doing a Duathlon...can you hear a whoop-whoop
I needed a challenge. At the beginning of the year I had already made a decision to do / try a Triathlon and while investigating the world of multisports I discovered Duathlons and thought 'why the hell not'. I have already entered my first one, call me eager but it gives me plenty of time to train. The first one I have entered takes place mid-June which is also in winter but thankfully our winters are mild. I am looking forward to it.
It is a 5km run, 30 / 40 km cycle and then another 2.5 km run. I am currently using the Couch to 5k running programme to get me running. I have until October to get my swimming sorted out for Triathlons - currently I am working hard at not drowning myself. LOL
I have not being doing much cycling. I did a 20km event a few weekends ago - rather embarrasing. I should have done the longer route but the GOOD NEWS is that I really enjoyed myself on the shorter route even if I did feel guilty about not doing the longer route. Doing the shorter route enabled me to catch a movie with my boys while we waited for a friend of ours to finish doing the much, much longer route.
Hubby will be doing a 41km with me in April. I better remind him so that he can get some training in. Time to hit the race track again to get some 'safe' training in. The evenings are getting cooler - only problem being is that it is getting darker sooner which does not leave us much time to train but for now I will take what I can get. :-)
On a completely different note. Little did I realise how in love I would fall with running. I look forward to my running days and dread being inside the gym. Hmmmmm!! What's with that??
Another thing I have started doing is Katabox - what a workout that is. I really have loads of fun and I'm proud to say that I think I am getting the hang of the bouncing thing. LOL The one reason I avoided the Katabox class since joining the gym 2 years ago was because I could not bounce - well, all of a sardine - now I can.
As for the weight loss - I'm back at hovering. I really need a kick up the patootie. It will move soon enough. Would help if I stopped eating copious amounts of crap though. Oh boy!!
What are you up to?
