So I'm about a week out from my first triathlon. Most triathletes shave their legs... There's not a huge reason to do this, it seems like more of a rite of passage... There's no benefit to the swim - I'm wearing a wetsuit! And the bike, the aerodynamics are so negligible. It can definitely help in a fall - it makes cleaning up the wound much easier. So I'm still undecided, but am leaning towards doing it...it will make the experience a little more unique!
This week I had a great brick workout...26 mile ride in about 1:25 and a 4 mile run in about 34 minutes! That puts me right on pace for the 3 hour finish I'd like! There, I said it. I'd love to finish, but also to come in breaking 3...
So I took a quick break in training for another home improvement project: demoing and installing a retaining wall weds-thur (tough back breaking work!) That counts for a core workout, right?
But I did put in a slow 16 miler this yesterday afternoon. Legs were very heavy, but I've gotta keep up some distance for Big Sur!
More soon... And stay posted for news on the legs... :)
