Hey yall,

I’ve decided to sign up for my first Olympic Triathlon! While I have experience with competitive swimming (albeit during 3rd and 4th grade), I have been deathly afraid of any exercise that requires chlorine and a one piece speedo.

To keep things interesting, I’m going to document and record my progress, challenges and tips throughout my training.

I’m using the training as a means to get healthy and getting disciplined in a strict regimen.

During college, I trained for three hours a day, six days a week. Knowing how much energy and confidence you can have by pushing the limits with your body, I’d like to find a way to balance work, hobbies, social duties and physical fitness in a sustainable manner.
