Wow how time flies! I just realized I have less than a month to go before my first tri this summer. I finally “officlally” signed up for the Lake Metroparks Lighthouse Fairport Triathlon yesterday. I did this race last year and it was great. Clean beach, interesting bike course and spectator friendly—and the registration fee is only $20! They also have a kayak option for non-swimmers that want to try out triathlon. It’s a 500m swim, 20k bike and 5k run on July 28, 2013.
I think I’ve been spending too much time lifting at the gym this year and not enough time doing cardio. My recent times have been kind of slow. To be honest, I’ve had less motivation to swim/bike/run lately and more motivation to lift. It’s also summer so I want to look good.
I need to do more cardio over the next month—and somehow find the motivation to do so. I’m taking a trip to Put-In-Bay for a few days around the 4th. The place we stay is good for training because it’s on the lake so I should be able to get some open water training in. Biking on the island is a challenge. Three times around the island is about 16 miles. There’s also no gym, so I’ll be limited to body weigh strength moves.
