Training for a triathlon...



Recommended Posts

Chris-sorry to hear about the accident. I hope you will be able to recover quickly. However, if not, like you said don't risk it. Not worth it.

Great to know you dr was and is behind you on this. Amazing the change in what was ailing beforehand, isn't it?

Hi Im back. Bermuda was beautiful. I wish I could say we had good weather. But...

Chris I'm sorry to hear of your spill. It sucks to think you might not be doing the Tri but it is so much more important to heal well.

The question of the Tri in Oct is a moot point now I have a wedding to attend on that day.

Good luck LABPUPS on your upcoming surgery.

I talked to the race director about doing a Duathlon if my swim isn't possible. He said I'd be DQ'd but could receive split times. It's a triathlon, so I understand the DQ if I miss 1/3 of it. Still hoping to swim. Last night's workout in the pool gave me some hope. Won't know until Friday night.

If I remember why I started doing this... To get fit and healthy, doing the full Tri is less important. DOING something is key!!!

I looked back on a few goals I set back in May. Wow! I've crushed a couple of them. I believed I could do them and I was right! If you think you can or think you can't, you are RIGHT!

Have a great week!

Best of luck Jon!! Undoubtedly, you won't see this until after your race. Hope all went well!!

I swam tonight and felt about 80% healthy. I am going to do the TRI on Saturday not the DU. I am really psyched! I had doubts after my injury last Saturday. They are gone and have been replaced with real anticipation to get'r done! What a week. I'll report back on Saturday night.

Thanks for all your support!!!!! Heres looking forward to the next one.

Great Jon!! Way to go!!!

 

I finished my third Tri today too. Wow!!! The toughest one yet!! My shoulder is at about 80%, so I swam the 750m. My times weren't posted when I left so I'll update times later. The swim went fine until the 3rd leg. We were swimming against current in the lake. Kind of weird. I felt myself being pulled to the left. It wasn't like that last week when I did the course preview. I finished well.

The bike went fairly well. I hit 48.5 mph going down a big hill with about 2.5 miles to go. One thing you can say about my size, it creates momentum! Finished well!

The run started ok. No cramps whatsoever today. I loved that. I did develop a stitch in my sides about a half mile into the run. Then there were 5 hills. Small hills but hills nontheless. I walked a fair amount.

I'm just glad I was able to Tri instead of Du. I feel great. Some soreness remains in the shoulder. I need to rehab it before I do another. My next is tentatively planned for 9/6. My brother will do his first with me on that day. It is a pool swim.

I hope everyone else on this thread had a great day like Jon and I did!! These are so addicting. I hope I never stop Triing!

I have 3 more tris this year. The next 2 are coming up soon. I have a pool tri that I'm doing with my brother on 9/6. I am also doing another the next week, 9/13. The 2nd one will likely be done as part of a relay. It's an equalizer tri, 1K swim, 15.1 bike, & 4 mile run. I will also be flying to Page, AZ to do the Powell3 on 10/18. It is so much fun to have these to look forward to.

How is everyone else?

I did another Tri yesterday. It was a pool swim. I loved it!!! That is so much easier mentally than the open Water. My bike was acting up so I pulled back just a bit on the downhill portion of the ride. My wheel was rubbibg a bit. I didn't need a blowout at 40 mph. The run was a killer!! We made 2 circuits of this course, so I had to do the hill twice. Wow, what a grade to run up. I had a goal to do this in under 1:30:00. I did it in 1:25:01. I feel great.

Next week I'll be doing a 20 mile bike race instead of another Tri. My last Tri of the season will be at Lake Powell on 10/18/08.

Is everyone done training for the year or will you keep training through the fall and winter? I definitely want to keep this going, but am unsure where/how when the snow comes. I guess the gym will replace the road.

chris...pools, treadmills, and bike fluid-trainers are your new winter friends. :lol: The trainer I have renamed The Ba$tard. Talk about a sweat party...keeping the pace at 90-95+ and no wind to dry/cool you off? Yeah, it'll take some time off of your spring-time road rides. :wink2:

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
