I spent Saturday morning swimming, biking and running in Litchfield County CT. Mr. Momtrends and I have caught a bit of the triathlon bug. We've been training together this summer. And the work paid off. Not only did I have a fantastic time and not feel any post-event pain, I took home first place in the women's division--a basket of heirloom tomatoes and a gorgeous wild flower bouquet.
If you're a mom looking for motivation, I say consider a sprint triathlon (1/2 mile swim, 13 mile bike and 3 mile run). It takes some effort but is much easier than say, a marathon. Unlike training for just a single sport I think triathletes can avoid injury. Plus, I rarely was bored working in the three different sports this summer.
What's your fitness goal? Have you ever wanted to do a triathlon? Next summer we may tackle the Olympic distance (double all the distances of the sprint). For now, I'm pleased with my performance and my tomatoes.
Momtrends was not paid for this post.
