As promised, I have a progress report for Milestone #1 as I prepare for 140.6. For my non-triathlon friends, I hope this post provides you with a little glimpse of preparing for and participating in an endurance race.
When I signed up for my first full-distance triathlon (140.6 miles) last November, my plan was to take the training in steps and set some milestones along the way. First step was to get my training base back and then get a race under my belt. After all, it had been over a year since my last race and I needed an early gauge of my fitness level.
