Congrats to everyone running the Chicago Marathon next year! It’s a fun race (see my recap here) and I look forward to hearing all about your training and eventually racing :).
However, this week while everyone else was signing up for the marathon, I had my eyes on something else.
I signed up for my first tri!! It’s not until June but it should give me time to get back my swimming endurance (definitely fell to the wayside due to marathon training) and get re-accustomed to my bike.
I’ll need all of the advice I can get (when the time to train comes), but I can’t help being so excited to try something new!!
I plowed through homework this morning like nobody’s business. I was being so productive that the time just flew by. Around 12:30 or so I called it quits and headed out for a speedy run.
Because this week is a cut-back week (only 13 tomorrow!), I let myself push the pace today and busted out 4 miles in 27 minutes and change. Sub-7 min/mile? I’ll take it!
Ian and I had a couple of “errands” to run and decided to take care of them this afternoon instead of tomorrow before the Superbowl.
First stop, Anti-Cruelty.
The Anti-Cruelty Society is an open-door animal shelter that does not place time limits on animals in their care. I know that a lot of people have mixed opinions about the organization but it is where I adopted my furball and the organization is helping animals in need.
Every so often Ian and I stop over to play with the dogs and cats. We really want to get a dog but we both know now just isn’t the right time. So for now, visiting the shelter will have to suffice.
Isn’t she cute??
We also made a stop at Sprinkles to take advantage of their buy one get one free deal.
Apparently a lot of other people had the same idea! Fortunately, the line moved quickly and after maybe 20 minutes of waiting we walked out with one Salty Caramel and one Raspberry Chocolate Chip.
Have a wonderful Saturday night!
Have you ever competed in a triathlon?
