This morning began Day One of training for the mini-triathlon at the end of April. I'm doing informal training until January 1, at which point I'm going to begin a modified 16-week program that will have me training for distances that are twice what I'll actually be doing in the competition.

My theory being that if I get my body used to biking 10 miles on a given day, going for half that - as I will in the mini-triathlon - will be easy.

My theory is probably completely wrong.

ANYWAY, this morning I did 30 minutes on the elliptical (3 miles total distance) then followed with 5 miles on the recumbent bike. It took me 19:42 to complete the five miles; it's not a great time overall, but I think it's pretty good for coming on the tail end of a 3-mile workout on the elliptical.

The next step is getting on the treadmill (my nemesis).
