there are only five days left of the ironman triathlon that a friend and i signed up for. here’s where i am at:
swimming: 13 remaining laps, have completed 72 laps
running: 6 remaining miles, have completed 20.2 miles
biking: 67 remaining miles, have completed 45 miles
elise and i were hoping to get in a nearly 70 mile bike ride yesterday but heavy winds and cold weather made us choose to turn around early, clocking a 34 mile ride instead. it is now snowing so i’m headed to the university gym to log some miles on a stationary bike. not my first choice, but it’s exercise and it would be fun to complete this challenge. i could never do a real ironman triathlon (at one time) and wouldn’t really want to, but doing it over three weeks is a fun goal.
i hope to complete the challenge because i like to finish things i start and i want the $5 registration fee to result in a finisher’s t-shirt!
