This morning, as I biked up to meet Jen, I thought about what a nice change of pace it was. How I am truly loving tri training.
How humbling it is!
Iâ€™ve been running for five years, and Iâ€™ve run four marathons and nearly 30 half marathons. I know a thing or two about running. I know so little about swimming and biking, but Iâ€™m loving learning about it.
And I love the novelty of it. A few years ago, a coworker accused me of only being so into fitness because it was novel to me. Well, guess what, buddy? Thatâ€™s the secret. Keep it fun, keep changing it up.Â
Right now, Iâ€™m adding cycling + swimming to my running equation, but if youâ€™re a runner, you can always do more speedworkÂ or add more mileage, or any of a number of things to mix it up.
For me, Iâ€™m going to keep giving this tri thing a try. Itâ€™s pushing me out of my comfort zone every day and making me stronger mentally and physically. And Iâ€™m still FIERCELY in love with my new bike.
Do you have the attention span of a gerbil for fitness and need to mix it up often, too? Do you live in NYC and cycle? (Total non-sequitir, just looking for some cycling buddies!)Â
