Training for a triathlon...



Recommended Posts

I honestly think Duathlons are harder than Triathlons.

A thanks? I just entered a Duathlon. Something to look forward to I guess.

Ya, after your post I saw something on TV about it. I wonder how many bodyguards did the Tri also.

Thanks for the link, Jon! I hadn't heard about it. My times are pretty good compared to most of them!!!

I did a 20 mile bike race on Saturday. I think it went very well! I averaged 18.3 mph. Not bad, especially in light of the number of "slower" riders I had to dodge for the first few miles.

I'm doing a 5K this Saturday.

My goal at the first of the year was to run a 5K by the end of December. I've now run a total of 4 5K races and 4 Sprint triathlons. I now have a goal to add 2 more of each before the end of the year. I'm loving this!!

.6 mile (964 meter) swim; 19.6 mile bike, 5k run.

I'm hoping to finish in 2:10 or less, and my HTFU time would be a sub-2 hour time. 2:15 is my top "acceptable" time. :girl_hug:

Anyone else getting out this weekend?

I'm doing another 5k this Saturday. Last Saturday I had my best time yet! The run has been my weakness and I'm very happy that I am seeing good improvement.

I have a triathlon scheduled for the next weekend. I finally sent in my order for shirts that I will be selling to triathletes. I'm going to attach pictures of the shirts here. Tell me what you think. Let me know if you are interested in getting one. Keep Tri -ing!!!!

I completed another tri yesterday. It rained all day, but the race went on. I was very surprised that they still did the bike portion. I was utterly soaked!! The rain actually started to hurt as it hit my face near the end of the bike. I thought that it might be hail. All in all, it went ok. I missed my goal by 2 mins and 6 secs. It is kinda sad when the swim is the warmest part of the race.

I have another tri scheduled at Lake Powell on the border of AZ and UT. It will be held on 10/18.

It snowed in the high mountains of Utah this weekend. Maybe ski season will be here soon and I can get great workouts in on the hills.

I have lost 36.25 inches on my body since December. Each month I measure the same areas and chart all of the data. It is very exciting to see the progress when the scale quits moving as fast. Muscle is replacing the bulk and it has greater mass and weight. So I can't expect to still lose the lbs like I once did. I feel better than ever!!!! I hope you all are still being sucessful in your journeys!!!

Last Saturday was my 6th tri of the season and was by far the toughest!!! There were 8 miles of hills!!! No joke!! It was held in the most incredibly beautiful setting - Lake Powell.

I have one more tri this year, then we'll hang it up until springtime. It's starting to snow in the Utah mountains, so skiing is only a month away. That should keep me in great shape!

      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
