Or maybe its I should be committed. Ever since Es started training for a triathlon I've had thoughts about how cool it was and maybe I could do that. Other times I thought I am a big chicken and there is no way I am riding a bike at 25 miles an hour with the chance of crashing into the pavement, swimming with a bunch of other people swimming over top of me or running. period. Watching her and 2000 other women in the Iron Girl changed my mind. Just watching them was fantastic, I want to be one of them. I was surprised at the shapes and sizes the racers came in. I know I need to be healthier, I know I need to exercise, I know I work better if I have a goal. Now I have one.
So, today it was just a 30 minute fast walk but I started exercising with a goal in mind. I know running is going to be the hardest part, I am just not built to run and with my failed MILF-dom exercise right now I would be risking serious joint pain. I am going to try to be patient and not stress my body too much in the beginning. Before starting to run I want to get my weight down a bit. I have nearly a year to get there and I will get there. In addition to Es I've found other inspiration mainly Slow Fat Triathlete--definitely the first book I am going to read on the subject.
