TTT – Loving My Life

1.  Meet the newest addition to my household and long lost love of my life…

New Bike

Isn’t she beautiful? I may be obsessed. I also may be broke now.

Now all I have to do is sell a kidney to pay for it.  Triathlons are expensive, dude.

2.  I had weigh in this morning and I’m down 1.4 from last week!  That brings me to 8.2 total!  *happy dance*  Doing a 70.3 is going to be a lot easier with a little less heft on my frame.

Some people are brave enough to put their weight on the internet. I am not quite that brave…yet.

3.  I completed my first swim workout for tri training!  I realize that this shouldn’t be a big deal, but I may or may not have had a minor panic attack beforehand.  What if the other kids don’t like me?  What if the other lap swimmers laugh at me?  I’m such a big baby sometimes.  As luck would have it, I was the only lap swimmer for the evening and I was able to really just relax into the workout.  I really just need to learn to get out of my own way sometimes and forget about what other people are thinking.  I need to channel my inner Pam sometimes:

And this is why she is one of my favorite people ever.  Can you come visit already?

Happy Thursday!

  1. Ha, love Pam’s advice!

    Hello lovely bike! I’ve thought about attempting a sprint tri but I don’t have a bike or the funds to get one. My current bike is my husband’s old mountain bike. Thoughts?

    • I say for a sprint tri, you are fine! It won’t be as easy as a road bike, but it will get the job done. I have been saving for this one, but check used bike stores and craigslist. They have really good options!

    • I may or may not be madly in love with it. Fella kind of walked in on me and her spooning. Very embarrassing.
