No Hudson Triathlon for Me

Posted by madtrippin on August 25, 2008

I’ve decided not to do the Triathlon in Hudson, WI next weekend.  I’ve gone almost two weeks without training due to having my parents in town from Florida and the acquisition of a puppy.  I’m still not all that confident in the swim, so I’ll just wait till next season to resume racing.  Swimming a couple times a week over the winter should really help me improve.

I am, however, still going to get in a couple of 5 and/or 10ks in.  I’ll be signing up for this year’s Turkey Trot in Chaska for sure, as my wife and kids have expressed interest.

I need to get back into the habit of working out.  I’m actually a little disappointed in myself for letting the workouts slide so badly.  I don’t think I’ll be going back to the 5 day a week format I was doing before and a couple weeks after the Chaska tri, but I think 3 days a week is doable until next tri season nears.
