Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.
Another notch in our belt….we “graduated” from our personal training and now we are onto our tri-training! I’m really excited to be at this point because I’m ready to start learning how to swim (as I don’t think flailing around in a backyard pool counts as swimming)! I’m anxious to see how comfortable I am with brick workouts. I’m stoked to be reunited with our group! Tuesday was our first class, and it turns out we have new teammates! It will be interesting to see how everyone comes together…a bigger group to hold us all accountable and push each other through this journey! Thursday was really our first workout session with the larger tri-training group, and it was interesting to hear the new individuals’ comments about the intensity of the training. The 6-Packers have been going for a few months now, but I tell you, their words rang a bell and sounded like they just came out of our mouths not too long ago! This is definitely going to challenge us!
Today I had my bike fitting with Pascalle. I was not too sure what to expect as I’ve never had a bike fitting or anyone really to talk about proper riding with me. As I pulled my bike down off the hooks in the garage, I got butterflies in my stomach thinking about getting out on the trails again to ride! I learned quite a bit about riding technique, and I learned that my bike is too long for me so I need to make some big adjustments to the bike for me to be more comfortable on the trails! And I’m hoping that our 15 mile ride for the tri is just the beginning for my riding!
