OK…so one day a friend comes up to me and says, "Rick…let’s do a triathlon!" At first I wanted to know if he were smoking something and then I came to my senses (the guy is straighter than an arrow) and just said that he was out of his mind. I am 5’11" and at the time I weighed a hefty 240lbs and was 35% fat.
It’s now 6 weeks later. I agreed to do it because it is a "mini" triathlon (100m swim, 10K bike ride, 3.2K run)…even *I* can do that!!!
I now weigh 217lbs and my BMI is 25%. My goal is 200lbs by the time the event gets here on April 22.
I’ve done two mock trials and the first time I did the ordeal in 49:21. My second time I did 45:01. My goal is to do it all under 40 minutes.
