The transformation of a short fat girl

Tri-Run

Yesterday, I hit the road running on a 2.15 mile walk/run my faithful dog KC and house guest Courtney. We did what is called interval training which is walk the first five minute (warm-up) run 1 minute, walk 2 minutes and repeat the run walk routine until complete. I would have been able to do the entire 2.15 miles like that if it weren’t for this humongous hill on the last block. So I called the last block my “cool down” even though it was harder to walk up than the rest of the run.

With only 52 days until the triathlon, I feel that I am running out of time. I am still not able to run a complete 5K and I am no where close to swimming 400 meters. The bike riding part I’m not worried about since we have been riding round trips to Stone Mountain on a regular basis and that’s almost 20 miles alone.

My strategy is to get through the swimming the best I can then really make up some time on the bike by riding as hard as I can and leave enough energy for the 5K run. My biggest goal right now is to run the entire 5k without having to walk any of it.

Wish me luck
