The Journey

The journey is more important than the destination.

Several years ago a friend of mine asked me if I would do the Fairlee Triathlon in Vermont. After training for three months, feeling like I was going to drown in the swim, feeling nauseus on the run, I crossed the finished line and was hooked.This led to my triathlon journey.

Dang it's cold out

I did a 90 minute ride this morning followed by a 30 minute run.  When I checked last night it said that it would be in the 40's around 6:30 this morning, which is when I was planning to leave.  I didn't get out until 7 and thankfully I checked the temp.  It was 33!  So, I went back upstairs and put my winter riding gear and headed out for my ride.

It didn't end up being that bad. I had booties, hat, two pairs of gloves and three layers on top. So that is probably why.  By the time I left for the run, it was in the mid 40's, sunny and comfortable.  Tomorrow is the first long run in a while - 15 miles. I'm planning on 2 - 7 1/2 mile loops with an opportunity to get water after lap 1.  Temp is supposed to be in the high 40's/low 50's so it should be a comfortable workout.
