I am slowly starting my triathlon training. This week I signed up for a week free at a gym. I did it to try out a Zumba class my friend has been raving about. A second bonus is they have a 25m pool.
Zumba was cool on Tuesday night. I am not much of a dancer but I really enjoyed it. I stood behind my energizer bunny friend and watched her steps. I think I kept up really well. I am sore in a few new places.
Tonight I wanted to test myself for a 500m swim. I really didn't know how I would do. I was thinking I probably wouldn't be able to go non-stop. It's been over 2 years since I swam for exercise. Well I .....
Swam 500m non-stop in 11.51.41.
11 min. I came home and told Mr., his response was "are you sure". I still didn't know how I did, so I looked up the 2009 swim times for the triathlon. The range was about 7 min to upwards of 18 min. Pretty good start. Sum it up ... I am more fit that I know.
P.S. I texted my BFF/ UPT / Energizer bunny right out of the pool, can't wait to hear what she has to say :-)
