It has been awhile

It has been awhile since I updated everyone on my progress.

As of last week I am down a total of 83 LBS. I try  weigh myself every Thursday, which is tomorrow.

I got some exciting news today. TriEqual will be announcing the 50 women who will get to experience free coaching for three months on November 25, 2015.  I sent in an application and now I am keeping my fingers crossed. They had nearly 500 applications to read and pair down to only 50.

I ordered my new suit from Swim Outlet and it should be here in the next week. I ordered a size 20, hope it fits I am ready to get back into the pool.  Going to work very hard on my swimming in the next few months. Will be getting a membership at the Rec Center here in town for the next 6 months. Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas to me!

My goal is to be able to swim 50 yards without stopping. I have always needed to stop and rest after each 25.

I am looking at my first race to be in April. The Try Tri Illinois at SIUE. I will be doing the super sprint: 150 yard swim, 10mile bike and 2 mile run.

I know from last year, I need to work on climbing hills and learning how to change gears on my bike. I will be using Mabel once again this year, as I am saving my money for an entry level TRI Bike.
