I already have three triathlons on the books (= registered and paid) for the season.
I'm curious how Cross Fit (there will be other blog topics, I promise, but this is my blog) will affect my performance. In describing it's many attributes, Cross Fit indicates it improves performance in activities/sports you don't necessarily do at CF. Like, biking (and dancing?).
The first Tri is Ramblin Rose (ladies only) in Raleigh on May 22nd. I will do some swimming, riding running in advance but for the most part I'm going to focus on cross-training via Cross Fit.
The second Tri is the Doughman with the famous fourth leg. Eating.
It's a relay race (me and my food aggression will just have to deal with it).
I'm the bike rider. I also have to eat the most. Let's just skip the question of why I was asked to do this leg.
I'm not sure how to train for a tri that DQ's you if you puke.
The third tri is Smile Train Sprint Triathlon in Wake Forest.
This is actually the first Tri. My first Tri.
Two years ago a pal quit smoking. Decided to do a triathlon to get through it.
I said "I'll do it with you."
And here we are.
