My Triathlon Story

More Community Service

Oct 2, 2007 |

I had my community service today. I find that the main trouble with it isn’t the time it takes up, but that it makes me tired for the rest of the day. After getting up early and spending about 7 hours on my feet performing manual labor, I just do not have any energy to […more]

Exercise Through Community Service

Oct 1, 2007 |

I think the indoor pools in my town opened tomorrow, but I won’t go. I didn’t get my pool pass yet, and I have community service to do. I’m going to be doing community service about twice a week. Luckily, I get some exercise doing the community service. It’s not as intense as most triathlon […more]

It’s So Hot

Sep 9, 2007 |

It’s funny, because I’ve been posting about preparing for the coldness of the upcoming winter. Well, the last few days have been nearly unbearable in terms of heat and humidity. It makes me feel tired, and makes it hard to do work and exercise. Luckily, I do my running at night when it cools down […more]

Running Felt Cold

Sep 5, 2007 |

I felt cold running last night, for the first time in a while. I run at night during the hot summer to avoid the heat. Now maybe I will start running a little earlier to avoid the cool nights. I just don’t want to think about the upcoming winter. I don’t like the feeling of […more]

Night Running

Jul 21, 2007 |

I do all my running at night, because it is too hot during the day. I hope to get out cycling more during the day. I want to think of somewhere to which I can cycle, because I would prefer doing that to cycling around aimlessly. Do you cycle anywhere, or just go around in […more]

Marathons For Charity

Jun 26, 2007 |

I hope to do some races for charity and such this summer as well as future seasons. You have┬áprobably heard about various marathons for various causes. Most probably involve only running, rather than an entire triathlon. However, triathletes have┬ámore endurance than most. Consider using that endurance to participate in some of these races that raise […more]

Local Park

Jun 25, 2007 |

I found a local park that has an outdoor pool and has tennis courts. The pool hasn’t opened for the season yet, but it probably will soon. I’ll likely need a new pool pass from the town, but I can probably get one cheap. In addition to my triathlon training, I can get some good […more]
