Rota Blue Triathlon

Lewie has inspired me to start training for my first tri! You know what that means, no more slacking off or sleeping in. I've been waking up at five am in the morning to swim or run. The Rota Blue Triathlon is coming up this November and I am going to sign up for it and compete. I'm so hyped up about my first tri! I just know that I'll become addicted. Here's a couple of pictures of Rota when I went diving this past March. Such a beautiful little island. Everyone is so friendly.





I started my three month training schedule last month so I think I should be ready by November. I still have to figure out the diet part though. Not sure what supplements or power gels to use. I've been mostly running and swimming for the past couple of weeks. I haven't gotten a chance to train on the bike yet because I am still shopping for one. Should hopefully get it soon. So far I am gear lusting over this bike. Its a Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disc Bike.



If I can't find anything else than I will probably end up getting this one. I've been saving my pennies. I really really want this one!

That's a sweet looking bike. If only I could afford a new bike ever year. How sweet would that be?!

As for supplements or power gels, now is the time to experiment to find out which ones work for you and which ones don't, also how much and how often to fuel up.

Good luck on your training!

Good luck with your training, Bev.

I do a triathalon now and again: I down a shot of tequila at Porky's, then I walk next door to McDonalds and drink a chocolate shake, then I trot across the street and have a bowl of chile.
