To tri or not to tri?
Am I mental?
Now before you rush to answer this question with the inevitable, let me explain the context of my question.
I went for lunch today with my flight friend. We had a lovely time catching up, chatting away, comparing speeding fines (I won!) while enjoying our ‘light lunch’ of Boston baked beans with 2 slices of sourdough bread. I think our definitions of ‘light’ are slightly misaligned though, the bread slices were the size of a cricket bat and the baked beans could have actually fed the whole of Boston! Anyway, the conversation (surprisingly given the amount of food we were consuming) turned to health and exercise. Whilst working our way through our mountain of food, we came to the conclusion that we needed to do some more exercise and basically be more healthy.
So, what would be the next logical step from this would you think?
Well, after recruiting her to my parkrun exploits on a Saturday morning, we have somehow (and I don’t know how, there wasn’t even any wine at lunch that I can blame), decided that we should . . . .
do a Triathlon together.
Yep that’s right . . . . a Triathlon!
It gets worse
This is not 1 single triathlon, that is months away and we have ages to train for. No, no where’s the challenge in that? This is a series of 5 (I know) triathlons www.triseries.com.au, the first one being 8 weeks away, and then a triathlon every 3 weeks after to complete the series.
Which all leads me to muse if I am in fact mental.
To Tri or not to Tri . . . THAT is the question?
