Today was my triathlon training/taster session. Those on the quest know that I have been really nervous about it. My swim in is fine but the rest, oh boy does it need some work. So off I set, leaving myself enough time to get there. I put my foot on the peddle and went to cycle to the meeting point. My chain flew off. Ran back home pounded on the door, (too stressed to find my keys) OH came out saw my face. I garbled chain. He bent down and just fixed it( my hero) , minutes later,
was ready to go again. Left OH with oily hands, he didn't mind he gave me a hug and said "go get em." So off I went.
As soon as I got there I knew it was going to be fine what ever happened no one was going to laugh at me. They just weren't that sort of people. We laughed and we talked but most of all we learnt the rules. I was the slowest on the bike and running training but no one minded. The course has hills. I was terrified I would have to get off my bike and walk it up, but I managed. (My legs feel it tonight).
The swim was good, that is were my confidence is.
But all in all I had a fab day and enjoyed every minute of it. Now to start the training.
Roll on august 31
