Training week 1

So we've completed one complete week of training each, and here's what we've done so far:

Sam started before me, so he's done (his off day is Thursday):
Wednesday, 2/4: 2 mile run
Saturday, 2/7: 3.5 mile run
Sunday, 2/8: 1.5 hour swim practice
Monday, 2/9: 3.2 mile run
Tuesday, 2/10: 1 mile swim
Wednesday, 2/11: 3.6 mile run
Saturday, 2/14: 3.5 mile run

So far, I've done (my off day is Monday):
Saturday, 2/7: 11 mile cycle
Sunday, 2/8: 1.5 hour swim practice
Tuesday, 2/10: 1 mile swim
Wednesday, 2/11: 2.7 mile run
Thursday and Friday: days off to try to beat my cold. Didn't work.
Saturday, 2/14: 4 mile run

Here's a photo of the team, on the first cycling day. Sam was at work.

We joined the St. Louis Triathlon Club. We're planning on doing the New Town Triathlon in July as well, as long as we continue liking what we're doing. We're both stoked to be doing this. Not only does it hold us accountable for the amount and type of exercise we're doing, but we're meeting people we never would have met before, venturing into areas we never would (like West County!) and we actually get to spend time together, which we never had before. Or at least our time spent together was on the couch. Not to mention, we never lose sight of the cause. This is all to contribute to the fight against cancer. If our entire team reaches our respective fundraising goals, we will contribute $85,000 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

So please be sure to contribute to the cause! And cheer us on!!
