I recently started training for my first triathlon. I have always been interested in getting fit, but have mostly been a casual observer. I don’t consider myself fit, but I’m also not overweight. In doing internet research I found a blog by someone that, like me, started out with a very limited exercise background and decided to train for a triathlon. Her blog is here.

What I liked the most about her blog is that she started it right from the beginning of her training. Working from her earliest posts forward I could follow her progress and struggles. I really like the idea of having a diary of my training, and thought I would try to do the same thing.

I have a lot to learn before my first real triathlon. I don’t even know how to swim at this point. But I’ll save all of that for a future post.
