goodbye christmas pud - hello 2009!
The year is inching to a close, and with it, my year of firsts!
2008 brought my first half marathon, first 10k and first sprint triathlon.
My primary goal for 2009 is the London Triathlon - and guess what? I've just entered!!!
That's right! I'm now officially locked into the 2009 London Triathlon! It's all very exciting - this will be my first (and possibly only) attempt at an Olympic Distance Triathlon - as the distances are going to be over double what I've already undertaken in the Sprint.
Looking at the figures, this is what we get;
Sprint Triathlon: 400m swim, 20km bike, 5km run
Olympic Triathlon: 1.5km swim, 40km bike, 10km run
So we can see there are some pretty monumental differences there.
I've stepped up training since my last post and have been active almost every day. On boxing day I took to a very chilly morning and ran along one of my old routes when I was training for the half mara - it brought back memories of when running was actually exciting (OMG I can run 10 miles!!!!!)
In other news I'm heading off today to gather gear for the Mt Kili climb. I love gear shopping, and pretending to know what i'm talking about to all the gear geeks. They always see right through me. I can't even spell carabiner.
