Triathlon Training is Under Way
I recently made a commitment to participate in a triathlon. This is a decision that has to be made every spring, and it has been a couple of years since I last participated in a triathlon. The race that I like best is held each July at Webster Lake in Central Massachusetts. It is put on by Danskin, it is for women only, and it serves as a fantastic fundraiser for breast cancer research.
The Danskin Triathlon is what is known as a sprint triathlon. It consists of a half-mile swim, 12 mile bike, and 5K run. This is the shortest of triathlon races. Participating in this triathlon requires planning and training, and since the race is only two months away, many participants are well into their training program. I started training late and so my goal is to simply finish the race. It will be tortoise speed for me, but that is okay.
One of the greatest challenges for me is not the training or the race, it is the time commitment. Triathlon training occurs during the busiest time of year for real estate in Massachusetts, and there is no option to give up my business in order to train for the race. So I have to plan my time carefully and simply do whatever I am capable of doing on race day. It's an exhilarating experience, and well worth the sacrifice.
Would you like to learn more about the Dankskin Triathlon? I enjoy swapping stories about the triathlon experience. Feel free to give me a call to chat: (508) 982-0686.
