I Survived Tri Camp…and I Loved It!

Monday, 11 April 2011  |  Running + Triathlon

I’m back from the 3-day Next Step Triathlon Camp in Subic!  I survived!  No jellyfish stings, Mom!

– I couldn’t have asked for a better group to hang out with at tri camp: my teammates at Team Hammer Bic (2nd) and Mike (Right) with Dr. Adel who guided me all through my 2nd bike ride –

Tri camp was a grueling experience: swim, run, brick on the first day and the same thing all over again the following day.  Others participated in a race simulation on the last day.

It was a weekend of many firsts for me:  first time to swim in open water, first time to hit 30k on a bike (twice that weekend!), and first time to bike in Subic. It was one of the most exhausting experiences of my life (I now have an even greater respect for triathletes) but it was also the most fun and exhilarating weekends ever.

I’ll tell you more about it in the next few days.  For now, allow me to rest this overworked body and get my much needed (and may I say, well deserved) massage.
