Triathlon Training, Day #1

Ok, so i didn't actually do any training today. But I'm counting today as day one because my heart and mind are still in it and i did alot of leg work today:
  • I got the OK from my doctor. He was glad that i was thinking of doing a program that started slow.
  • I decided on my workout schedule: http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cms/article-detail.asp?articleid=262
  • We scoped out our gym. We somehow lost the key to our pool/gym area, which was a huge excuse as to why i haven't been exercising. However, a quick sqeeze through some bars that some hooligan bent apart (Thanks, Hooligan!) and making a copy of our neighbor's key and we are IN!
  • I'm still trying to figure out logistics for swimming when it gets cooler outside. I am thinking about going back to school, but if i do that won't be until feb and that's too late. There's only one other gym in the jacksonville area that has an indoor gym, but they're $40/month and 25 minutes away. I mentioned that getting a wetsuit was an idea... that's definitely something to do when it's dark outside! lol

All in all, day 1 i feel has been a good day. We wake up at 5:00 am tomorrow for some walking and swimming!!
