How to achieve your Personal Best in a Triathlon?
Step 1) Do it! Boom- you just achieved a personal best.
One of the coolest things about being a beginner for a triathlon, is that your first triathlon is a Personal Best Time! So all I have to do is finish on Sunday. No problem.
The not so cool part about being a beginner is the anxiousness, the jitters, and the doubts that I’m having.
Yes, I did do a ton of training. Yet, I didn’t officially follow a training plan. I made my own. Is that good enough? I won’t actually know until I prove it on Sunday.
A couple of things: If you are free on Saturday, The Chicago Multisport and Fitness Expo takes place downtown.
You can go to this website for details: http://www.chicagotriexpo.com/
As I mentioned in my last post, if you are free on Sunday, it would be great to see you, but I know many of you are not able to make it, but still want to keep score at home.

Stay tuned for some more Triathlon 101 posts where I will detail my decisions I took good and bad to prepare myself for the Triathlon. I haven’t even started my first yet, and I am already thinking about where my second tri will be.
My year of action continues.
