I’m going back and forth trying to decide if I should move from the Olympic Distance Triathlon to the Sprint Distance in July.
I’m fine with the biking and running distances but the thought of the swim portion is freaking me out because I didn’t have very good experiences in the water at either of my triathlons last year and the Olympic Distance is double the Sprint Distance.
I’ve signed up for a swim class that starts in March (which means I’ll miss the last two speed skating classes of the season–shakes fist at having to make decisions about these things). But honestly, I JUST DON’T KNOW.
The thing is, if you get tired when you’re running you can walk.
If you get tired while you’re biking, you can stop pedaling or slow down the pace.
If you get tired while you’re swimming you’re still in the middle of a fucking lake.
Anyway, I’m waffling and that’s no fun when there’s no maple syrup involved.
p.s. This picture seriously cracks me up every time I look at it.
Not caring what you look like when you race in a triathlon?
