Half Ironman

It is Spring finally in the Northeast - and I finally got motivated to sign up for a race. I am doing a 50 mile bike tour on Sunday - race/fundraiser. Then I signed up for a Half Ironman Triathlon in September.

The Triathlon will take place in Narragansett Rhode Island - one of my favorite places to visit. I have been going there since I was a little kid - so this race made perfect sense to me - plus it will give me an ocean swim in the race - most in our area are lake swims. Lakes are wonderful for the calm waters - although did one in Lake George last year with big waves. Everyone was getting sick. My goal was to do a tri in the ocean to start - so here goes.

My girlfriend has already given me a training program - 20 weeks which started already this week. Woohoo. I am psyched - just hope that my body holds up. I went to Yoga last night and had a sharp pain in my hip - it went away - but I worry that I am doing too much too soon. We'll see.
