Redman Triathlon This Saturday

20 Sep

Hard to believe, but it is almost here! Due to a family emergency I haven’t been able to train at all since last Wednesday (most importantly, things are looking good on that front).

I hope to get a short ride in tomorrow and maybe a swim. It’s funny but six days of doing nothing (other than a mile or so walk several days) has made me tired, stiff and achy in my joints and back. Basically it has me feeling my age – 56 – until Saturday that is.

That’s right, I’m spending my birthday swimming 1.2 miles and racing my bike 56 miles – sounds like fun to me!

Hope all my training and fitness prior to last Wednesday will carry me through. It would be a great birthday present to do well!
