I have a new adventure today. I am going swim laps at the YMCA. Just a couple of notes. I love to swim, but I hate putting my face in water. I mean I really hate putting my face in the water. Water up the nose is the worst!
I have decided that completing my Duathlon this September is not going to be enough. I am going to need a new challenge. I have decided to compete a tri next summer. To do that, I am going to start training now. There is a short course tri right here in town each July. So will do that one for sure.
I find that I need to change things up to keep motivated. I easily get bored doing the same thing over and over. So now, I will run, swim, and bike each week. That should hold off the doldrums until winter when I add my classes back into my schedule. But for summer, I want to be outside as much as possible. Although I will swim at the Y. I don't like swimming in lakes. I guess I'll have to get over that because triathlons are not done in a pool :).
