Big new is... I bought a new bike for Christmas. Skeptical hubby rather reluctantly let me buy one after I assured him repeatedly..."I will totally use it more than once!". I have been getting out on the ROAD (!) at least once a week. I'm slowly building my fitness and distance. And of course getting more confident riding on the city roads.
She's so pretty! A real girly bike. All I need now is a pink helmet!
For the running leg I found this really fun free pod cast from here. A fellow blogging friend had steered me into the direction of a "couch to 5K" programme which works by interval training, walking 90 seconds..running 60 seconds etc. I thought to myself, who's going to be looking at their watch every few seconds. Then I came across the MP3 version of it. It has music playing then has a little hooter that alerts you its time to walk..or jog. Very cool! Great way to start running.
The swim leg training however has been sadly lacking over the last few weeks. The (free) swimming pool I want to train at has been closed, so I'll have to bite the bullet and go the other one.
On a another positive note...Hubby started doing training too and is a little inspired to try a sprint triathlon at some stage too. So its a bit tricky trying to fit it all in...work...three kids...other parts of life...but I'm positive we will get there in the end!
How are you "getting fit and healthy" for the new year?
