Training for Tri - Day 1: It Has Begun

Last night I hit the peak of my mindset to actually get back to form when my daughter patted my belly and told me, "Dad, you have a baby in your belly too!". That was the final straw. Now, I am not that overweight, but obviously my daughter has noticed a change in my body and therefore it is time.

My other motivation is to possible sign up and run in an indoor triathlon at the end of January. I am out of shape and this race is not too far off. I feel like I need to sign up to stay focused, but not sure if I will be ready. The race is
1. 36 laps in the pool (900 meters)
2. 10 mile bike ride on stationary bike at level 6
3. 2.5 mile run on small indoor track

I will see how the next week goes with training and make a decision. Tomorrow I plan on swimming the 36 laps to gauge my time. I hope I don't drown.

This morning I knocked out the following workout. I incorporated some cardio(still working on my foot), the 100 Push-Up Plan, and the IMPACT workout. I built a hybrid workout and it was a good one. Here it is folks.
