This week should have been the kick off for my tri training group, but since the great Alabama blizzard has brought everything to a halt here, it was postponed until next week. I started to say I've had a disappointing work-out week, but, I think instead I'll just say I had a restful week and leave it at that!
I joined the natatorium-a three month unlimited membership but have only made it over there twice so far. I was feeling pretty decent about my 300 and 400 yard swims until I started reading some other newbie bloggers who started out swimming 1000 yards. Okay...I'm trying not to compare, but it's just my nature! Here's the thing--except for the couple of times I've mentioned here, I haven't been swimming since college! I took a class so I could finally learn how to really swim since I hadn't learned as a kid...but I was just slightly embarrassed because everyone in the class already knew how to swim, they were just there for the fun of it. So the fact that I splashed back and forth for about a fifth of a mile without drowning is not a bad start.
I would like to figure out a way to count my laps because it's hard to think about it when I'm trying not to gulp in pool water. I'm sure there's something made for this; I'll have to look into it later.
I'm getting really excited about the thought of calling myself a triathlete. Just a year ago I wasn't able to call myself a runner!! This is going to be a great year!
Thanks for stopping in...come again soon!
