Talking Triathlon

I also posted in the 30 somethings, but wanted to share it here too, I hope you dont mind! For those in both forums, Im sorry for the redundancy...

Hey !

I had commented in the 100s group and in the Biggest looser thread that I had completed my first triathlon this past weekend. And since I love seeing everyones picture and progress, I thought that maybe it would be a good idea to share a couple pictures from the race...

A couple people asked me about how I trained for it. There are a lot of very helpful websites, if someone is interested, Id be happy to talk about it, just PM me ! But basically I designed my training around my work schedule, and I would do at least 1 hour a day, usually divided in 2 activities (swim, spinning or running), then on saturdays I would take long bike rides (about 2- 3 hours) and rest on sundays.

It was a really amazing experience, and Id definitely recommend it, if I can do it, almost anyone can do it!!! Now Im beginning to train for a half-marathon that will take place in the end of March, Im looking forward to it, and hopefully Ill have reached my goal weight by then !!

Congrats! Isn't it the most awesome feeling when you finish it and say, "OMG, I am a triathlete!"

Highly recommend the book, Slow Fat Triathlete for people looking to train for one.

Congratulations, triathlete!

And I second Jessica's recommendation. That book was the best, most helpful book on the subject - I even recommend it to my non-fat, non-slow friends who are considering triathlons, because it has such a good mix of practical and inspirational information for regular people (i.e. non-elite athletes)
