Tri-ing Again

March 13th, 2015

A few weeks ago I received an email from Rev 3, the folks who put on the triathlon we did in Maine in 2012.  They have joined forces with another company – Challenge – and they were going to have a 70.3 event in Rancho Cordova in October.  I deleted the email, thinking my triathlon days are over, but the thought of doing another tri kept returning to my head.   My job has gotten  rather stressful this year, and training is a good outlet for that.  After talking it over with Thom, who’s always super supportive, I signed up for the triathlon two weeks ago.

Today I met with my new coach for the first time. I am really excited to be working  with a coach for this race.  I am the “coach” all day long in my job.  It’s mentally exhausting and trying to figure out what to do for my own training every day often previously led to days when I did nothing.  In addition, just after an hour of working with him, I feel better about my run.  Thirty-one weeks until race day.  🙂
