That training plan didn't get off to a very good start

I've got 12 weeks before I tackle the High Cliff Triathlon. It doesn't seem like it should be that close. Of course, it doesn't feel like it should be April 1 either since it's still somewhat winter-like outside. But after counting backwards I confirmed it.

The triathlon's 12 weeks away.

Which means my 12-week training plan went into effect on Monday.

And I promptly slacked.

Yup. Skipped my first two workouts. Missed a swim and a run. Oops. I'll try to make some of it up yet this week. But the good news is that I didn't skip out on the bike workout tonight. I logged some time on the spin bike and covered 11 miles in 30 minutes on a bike that featured a seat that was a tiny bit too high for me. But I pedaled.

And starting today? No more slacking. Seriously. I mean it.

To be honest, I wouldn't worry about making up the first two workouts. Maybe just jump in where you are "supposed" to be and go from there. Just my two cents, but do what ya want! LOL

How exciting to think Triathlon season is upon us!
