First triathlon of 2017- done!!
Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter and is getting some nice family time in- I know I am!
I wanted to post about my first triathlon race of the year. I race the Alpha-Piathlon in Murfreesboro, TN last Sunday, April 9th. This race was a short sprint: 300m swim, 10 mile bike and a 5k run and guys, I’m telling you, hard work pays off. The race went a whole heck of a lot better than it did last year and I improved my time by 5 minutes plus!!! My workouts have been solid and I could feel each and every one backing me up while I was out there swimming, biking and running. When I finished, I felt like I could go run 10 miles more!!! This is the best I have ever felt after a race and I can’t wait to get even faster and stronger this summer.
My advice from this post is this: “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” When you feel those times like you can’t get out there and train, you have to know that you can do it! When you get bogged down and worn out, grab a small rest, take care of yourself and get back out there!!! YOU CAN DO IT! That’s all for now!!
