Day 1 of my tri-training was yesterday. Success? Yes. Perhaps.
I started my training with a short 30-minute run. I haven't ran in a while, so I felt a little 'bottom heavy' (know what I mean?). By my last leg, though, I was feeling great. The sun was shining, it was warm out--gorgeous weather for a run.
And then BAM. Before I know it, I'm skidding across the pavement outside a neighbourhood restaurant, giving diners a show.
It was the first time that's ever happened to me--the first time I ever collided with a sidewalk at that speed, that intensity (I wasn't going that fast, but it was fast enough). Ugh.
So, what happened? My laces. They're really long and so when I tie them, there's always huge loops. I was running, zooming along...right, left, right, left, right through the left's loop and whammy. Surprisingly, my hands were scratch-free. My left thigh on the other hand, a little banged up--but I'll live.
Once I re-tied my shoes and brushed myself off, I turned around to a table of eight shooting glances towards me in suprise/shock/concern. It was an open-window concept at this particular restaurant, so I shared a few laughs with the table, thanked them for their concern, and wished them a happy holiday Monday. Then I was off again!
Today is day 2 of my training and I will be heading to the gym for a much-needed boxing and conditioning class.
Each day, I will be posting my workout to the right under 'tri training'. Of course, I will be altering the training plan from Women's Health, so for the official plan, see here. Also, I hope to add a page to the site specifically for this 12-week challenge, so that I can share my progress with you (and hopefully yours with me) as often as I like, without taking up an entire post each week. Stay tuned!
