So I’ve been thinking over the whole triathlon thing over Christmas, and I’ve decided that it is just not financially viable for me right now. Swimming gear and pool access alone will cost £50+ and then there’s the bike situation to think about. So for now, I’m sticking to what I know and have decided this year’s challenge will be: MY FIRST MARATHON.
That’s right people, I have just entered the Yorkshire marathon! I am both terrified and excited by this new goal. Such a big deal ahhhh! Twice as far as I have ever attempted to run.
I haven’t really had time to let it sink in yet. But I’ve got my nike+ coach plan ready to go, and as of Monday I am officially marathon training!
