Well, I’m 5 weeks into my training and I can’t believe how awesome I’m feeling. Yesterday, we did our first Brick. A Brick is when you complete two pieces of the triathlon in a row. So yesterday we biked 20 miles and then ran for 20 minutes. While the amount of running time may not sound impressive, it was merely an exercise to begin the process of training our bodies to move from one activity to the next. When we complete the actual triathlon on Saturday, September 19 we will have to swim almost a mile, bike for 25 miles and end it all with a 6 mile run. After yesterday’s training I’m very confident, motivated and excited to continue on with this adventure.
