My First Sprint Triathlon: Part Three

As of this post, I am about five weeks into the training program. As expected, the intensity level has started to pick up a bit. The swims, bike rides, and runs are all getting longer.

Shannon even rode his bike in the rain with me one Sunday! We have done a lot of hill work and I have been on some trailways for my shorter rides during the week.
