QUEEN OF CROSS TRAINING!

Well at least today ;-) It might have something to do with the 10 days of prohibited running or with an Event that I will soon participate in!! Missy here will be doing her first Try-a-Tri on July 12th! It will be 300m swim -13.2K bike - 2.5K run.

I have no money to invest in this sport at this moment, so a new bike was out of reach but my Mom offered me her 1987 Road bike and that will have to do! I haven't named the bike yet but I'm thinking it'll be something like "Granny" or "Oldy"... any ideas?

Other than that, I went to the pool for the first time since my first year in University (that was a long time ago!) and was able to do 1K of crawl non-stop in 28 mins. I'm pretty happy since I'm really rusty but I'm like a fish in the water so I wasn't worried about the swimming part.
Counting the days till I can run again! (7 if you were wondering)

Granny sounds about right. I love the kick stand and the light for night training. You are ready!

Marcy said...

Granny. LOL!

Geesh, another person venturing into the tri territory. I'm gonna be left behind with all these triathletes coming out of the woodwork. LOL! Good luck in the tri!

I like Granny too! That's the way I would feel doing my first tri!

Good luck to you!

Hey moving into tri's eh? All the best with it. Bluesy?

Granny is pretty good, I'm going for that name!

Fran: not moving on to tris... we'll see if I like this one. But if it was just for me I would simply run but the foot is not cooperating. Stupid foot!!

Congrats on making it to the pool and getting that front crawl in! I love Granny! I'm curious to see how you like the tri thing too. I'm super excited for my first one next month!
