Now I am sure that Aaliyah wasn’t really referring to the multi discipline race, otherwise known as a triathlon, when she sung “try again” but I have taken inspiration from her anyway and will be attempting to complete a 70.3 in June.
For those that don’t know a 70.3, also known as a half ironman or middle distance, consists of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile cycle and a 13.1 run … one after the other after the other!!
Having never done anything like this before and with no coach I am going to muddle myself though a self written training plan whilst balancing marathon training … yep – I am crazy … PT course work (I am currently studying to become a personal trainer), normal work, seeing friends and my other half, eating and of course sleeping! Simple, right?
Well, who knows but I thought I might as well get back to writing, sharing my thoughts, findings and of course any food delights I discover along the way in hope of maybe inspiring or encouraging others to “try” … so here goes tri training and beyond!
