I have finally been convinced to try out some triathlons this summer. It will be my Lowcountry substitute for training for a mountain this spring.
I have been slowly building up my running, so I feel pretty good about that. The other two sports, not so much. Especially the swimming. In order to avoid drowning, which would suck all the fun out of the sport, I signed up for a Triathlon Training program at the MUSC Wellness Center. I just got the info packet, and it looks like it should be awesome. There are several training clinics, and we have six weeks of access to a whole host of talented coaches. The coaching team includes 3 triathlon coaches, 2 running coaches, a cycling coach, 2 swimming coaches, and 2 nutritionists. I should be a professional by the time this program is over! Well, at least hopefully I won't drown or fall off my bike, and will somehow make it across the finish line.
