There's just 61 days until I hit the road for my first triathlon - the Iron Girl Sprint Triathlon in Columbia, Md.
I've been doing a lot of strength training with some intermittent cardio throughout the spring. I definitely prefer lifting weights to cardio. Now it's time to really get into gear.
For the next couple of weeks, my plan is to swim and bike at least once a week, doing at least one twice a week. My training won't incorporate a lot of running because I develop nasty shin splints when I run. I'll start impact running just two or three weeks before race day.
Friday, I hit the pool and swam 0.32 miles. I'll need to be comfortable with 0.62 before race day, but it's all about progress.
Saturday my cousin and I headed out for a bike ride around the Liberty Reservoir in Baltimore and Carroll counties.
