All statements above are why my hubby didn't want me to do Outlaw this year - mainly the bike he knew unless i could a certain mileage by last December then it was going to be a hard task - I did enter Outlaw but after we went to Club la Santa (hubby on the tri course) and i tried to do some of the training they were doing I knew myself that it wasn't going to happen this year, so I pulled out.
Now I've actually done my first tri (sprint) and i have an oly next month I'm feeling better about the training, but my biking as I only learn how to cycle last year (I'm no spring chicken to those that don't know me) is still no where near fast enough for me to complete an IM, but Hubby and myself are aiming for Sweden in 2015, but next years aim is to do a half and lose the weight before Xmas.
I've got a long way to go, but I want to finish and not chase cut off, I'm lucky I only work 6 miles down the road so have no excuses for not training, also having a husband that is into Tri's and anything mental does help (although could sometimes kill him when he kicks me out the house when I've just got back from the bike). He has also made me a trining diary so I see where I've improve or not as the case may be.
I'll stop wittering now, and where I'd decided not to go OW tonight as I can do that Monday I'm now going,. so darn you lot for making me feel guilty.
