Let's Go Crazy

I may be completely out of my skull, but I'm 95% sure I'm going to sign up to compete in the St. Anthony's Meek & Mighty Triathlon next April.

Before anyone starts laughing, it's not a full triathlon, or even a sprint triathlon. 'Tis but a mini-triathlon – 1 mile run, followed by a 5.4 mile bike ride, then finishing with a 200m pool swim.

Honestly? I'm pretty confident that I can do this. I'm a strong swimmer, and I'm good on the bike. The big problem is that I haaaaaaaaaaate running. I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATE running. Even though I know one mile isn't really all that far, I'm still going to hate every single second of that run.

The competition is April 29, 2006, so that gives me a solid four months to prepare. I'll probably end up using one of the training plans on the Beginner Triathlete website.

You're starting to sound fierce with all your exercise regimes! [Fierce in a great way!] The race sounds like a great challenge and something to motivate your training.
