So… this past Saturday I finished my actual first, Olympic distance competitive triathlon. Woo! I will admit that I had vainly hoped to have a more aesthetically appealing body by the end of it, and to me it’s less so. But that’s ridiculous to worry about because I got so much stronger and healthier in the past 4 months of training for it. For someone who’s not been on a bike since childhood, or run EVER, I am feeling pretty happy about things.
Now that it’s behind me, I can start to focus on other projects again. I will keep up on a less rigorous schedule of things, because I fully intend to do another triathlon next year (or sooner) but now that this FIRST one is behind me I hopefully won’t be so consumed by it. I was really kinda stressed out by fear of the unknown previous to actually doing this.
