I decided back in December to train for a triathlon that's coming up in August. It seemed a good way to boost my self-esteem and get off the weight plateau I've been on.
I ran a 4k, a 5k, and 8 miles on Saturday. My swimming is horrible. I don't have time for training. I hate running, it hurts me. I'm done. I quit.
I've decided that any type of racing is not for me. I want to ride a lot of miles. I'll continue to do some weight training. I'm done running.
I had a hare-brained idea to race the Tour Divide in 2015, but that's out now too. No racing.
Could I do these things? Yes, I believe I could, with enough training, but I hate the training. I'd rather just ride my bike.
