Week two in the bag

Second week of training, and things are going well. I've been doing mainly running for the past couple of weeks, but soon I will branch out to more training with the swimming and bike sections of the triathlon. Mel has been spending most of her time in the pool which has served her very well since it has helped a lot with the bike and running by building up her core strength. I did jump on a stationary bike earlier this week, and even though my endurance is up from the running, the muscle groups did not see that bike coming. The swimming part will be the toughest part for me to fit into my schedule, but I am sure I can get creative with that. Another week down, time to bump up the intensity.

Week one down.

If you happen to read Melanie's blog (which she has been more active with lately) you may already know that we both signed up for our first triathlon. As for those of you who did not know that, well.. now you do.
It was an idea that was kind of tossed out there one night when we were having a night on the town with friends. It was kind of one of those things where you look at it and say "Sure, why not.". Now its not a full triathlon, for those of you who are thinking we are heading out to Hawaii or something. Rather its a sprint marathon, which is a 300 meter swim, 20k bike, and 5k run. I got a bit of a late start on things, but I just finished my first week of training. It feels good, but we'll see how my attitude changes when we get closer to the actual race. I'll post more updates as I go. But for now,I've got to go hit the showers.. Mel and I are going out for an Italian dinner tonight.
