Anyone training for the IronGirl in Atlanta June 27th?

On June 27th the Aflac Iron Girl Sprint Triathlon will be held at Lake Lanier.  This event is 1/3 mile swim/ 18 mile bike / 3 mile run, for females only.  You had to sign up in early January for this because it filled up in two weeks.  If you are a triathlon newbie, there is also a sprint triathon for beginners at Lake Lanier on June 5th and 6th.  It is 1/4 mi: 12 mi: 3 mi over virtually the same course.

 

I'd be interested in hearing from anyone else who is training for either of these races, so we can compare notes and cheer each other on.

    haha- i'm not even sure that i'm going to be able to complete each section of the course...at this point, i'm really doing all that i can do with my training.  so i guess i will either be able to finish or i won't...my goal is to finish (as opposed to any times or anything), but i have to admit that i'm getting kind of tired... 

     

    i really hope that i can do it!

    i'm doing the first tri on june 5th. if i have a good time maybe i'll do the irongirl! i suck at swimming-i can't breathe right, but i'll be okay on the bike/run. i'm pretty slow too, nothing competitive! my goal is to finish! that's all!

    beginnertriathlete.com is a great resource. check it out!

    i do most of my training at the chattahoochie trails / columns dr. off johnson's ferry road in marietta ( i swim at la fitness) if anyone else goes there let me know! would love a buddy!

    I am - for the Iron Girl.  Boy is it creeping up fast!!

     

    I am on the fence about doing the First Tri.  I think it would be good practice but I think I need until the 27th to try a tri. 

     

    I feel like I'm still establishing the basics.   I hope your training is going well. Know any magic tricks!?

    Christine-

     

    Thanks for asking about my training.  To be honest, it is starting to kick my butt a little bit.  I have been doing 6 day a week training, but with a toddler and a full time job it is getting difficult.  Luckily, I have a really supportive husband (who's a triathlete) and he keeps me positive.  He thinks I can do it and I have moments when I think I can't....

     

    How's training going for you currently?

     

    -Laura
