Got it!

Well, that’s that!  The final weigh in for the Biggest Loser Competition with my local triathlon club was today for me.  I lost another 3 pounds which put me definitively below the 190 mark at 188lb.  That was my only real goal for the contest and I got it!  Total weight lost since January 3 is 25lb.  I am 18lb away from my final goal of 170lb and feel pretty confident I can make that goal by this September for club nationals.  I’m really happy with the start to this year and have a lot of momentum already to achieve some pretty big goals.  But I’m trying to temper my enthusiasm with some reality.  I’m very excited with the progress so far but I need to stick to my original plan.

So here is what I’m looking at:

I said that I wouldn’t sign up for any races until I was under 190, so the door is open now.  I signed up for a half marathon at the end of this month and will probably do my first 5K in over a year this weekend to celebrate St. Paddy’s day.

My first multisport race will be April 7 at the MaxTrax Duathlon.

My first offroad event will be April 21 with the Amphibian race (3mi kayak, 3mi mtb, 3mi run)

My first triathlon of the year will be May 6 (yes, a pool swim) TriZou (sprint)

But from there, the tempering begins.  I want/need to do at least one olympic distance (preferrably 3-4) but I won’t sign up for one until I am under 180lb.

I want to do my first half Iron distance triathlon at Redman in Oklahoma this fall, but I won’t sign up for it until I am under 175lb.

The other goal I have for this year is not to get distracted by all the bright, shiny races going on around me.  I will consider an offroad event or adventure race, but that is all the new stuff I’m interested in.  If I want to do a half Iron, I need to TRAIN for it.  No distraction races like last year.  Between now and September I need to do a lot of bike run bricks and get on a PLAN this summer.  I can’t just keep going to every event or group training session if they don’t line up with my goals.  As much as I like the people in the club, I need to focus.

So here goes!
