With 63% confidence, I can say that I can currently complete each piece of the race separately. As of right this moment, however, I'd probably not be 100% successful in living through it if I tried to do all three together. But that's the point, races give you a goal to reach for. I need some new and exciting goals now that my knee is mostly healed. (Unrelated: Is playing soccer again a terrible idea? Because I really want to. Really.)
I'm not gonna lie, friends. I'm rill nervous about race day. I don't have ANY triathlon gear and it's new and scary and weird and it seems very, very expensive and everything is happening so fast I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY HANDS. I'm definitely not going balls out and buying a road bike for this, I'll just power through on my cruiser. I can put my dog in the basket. Or maybe a picnic lunch for me and my future triathlon friends.
Do you have any solid triathlon advice? Tell me in the comments!
