Needless to say, I’ll be getting a bigger size. And maybe cutting back on the calories…
As a runner, I’ve had to give up some of my runs in order to work in the much needed swims and spins that will help me complete the tri (hopefully!). Let me just tell you, editing out runs is difficult. I love the run and I’m so used to just running that it’s going to be a little bit like weaning Charlie Sheen off of porn stars. (Yes, another Sheen reference. It was needed today.)
Fortunately, I have a lot of friends who are actual, real triathletes and have helped me come up with a schedule that lets me keep my favorite runs (AKA track) and most important training runs (AKA the long run). In addition, my tri buddies have set up an OWS (that’s Open Water Swim) for this weekend. I’m just hoping no one mistakes me for a very large sea cucumber while squished into my wetsuit. Heh. Happy Humpday peeps.
Are you kidding? My wetsuit's so tight I look like Violet the blueberry girl in Willy Wonka.
When I wear my wetsuit the local sea lions buy me drinks and flirt with me. This is why I stopped swimming in the Bay.
You're so funny! I love that Chris Farley video. I can't wait to hear about your open water swim. And how great that you have so much support behind you!
Yay for getting your schedule happier.
My biggest tri mistake was not wearing a wet suit, so at least you have that covered.
This is exciting to hear your tri-venture
I am the complete opposite! I hate cutting my swims and rides back to run. Me and running, we're not cool with each other. Not yet.
In saying that though, I saw a SHOCKING photo of me on facebook this morning getting out of the water in my last tri…
I need to lay off the peanut butter or something, it was HORRIBLE!!! 🙁
Favorite run is track…what is wrong with you. Did that wetsuit prevent blood from going to your brain?
Hilarious comments today! I wish I could think of something clever about wetsuits, etc. but it's a hard act to follow….Chris Farley, blueberry girl, sea lion bait…SNL skits!
