Sarah and I did our first triathlon training brick today. We did a six mile bike ride (in 37 minutes, but we werent pushing it) and a 2 mile run/walk (in 25 minutes). About half of the tri ride and a little over half of the run. It was good, but man, am I beat! And, Peter got in on the action by biking to work (8-9 miles) for practice. He's driving home (well, Sarah is driving him home) but it's a good practice for his actual riding to/from work. It took him 45 minutes and it's fairly hilly.
We're going to do some shopping today, and Sarah and I are going to look at tri suits. We've opted to try 2 pieces, since she and I have different body types (read, I have the boobs to feed a small army) and were hoping to match. We've found these from Danskin that go in a large enough size to accommodate my DD's.
Hopefully, we can try these on! Now... about tri shoes... Do we just swim barefoot and put on our sneakers or do we invest in something like these?
Any triathloners out there? Thoughts?
