I've committed to an Olympic Distance Triathlon.
(Yes, I know that didn't require capital letters, but in my life it does.)
|Someone please swim this last lap for me.|
Wait, what? 1500 meters.
You mean I have to swim a mile!?!?!?!
The thing is I'm a pretty lousy swimmer.
Less than two years ago I started training for my first triathlon, and basically had to relearn to swim.
Now here I've done two triathlons, each with a 400 meter swim and I still can barely swim. So I've got to start my swim training again. I've got to build up my mileage. This will be a lake swim so I can't stop and hang onto the wall to rest.
25 mile bike ride, no problem. 6 mile run? Pshaw.
That swim though, that's got me concerned.
