Run-time competition for BS
Well, it seems to be triathalon season for my family. It used to be just my brother. But now my nephews and even my old, gray haired mother* are training to do a team or individual triathalon.
So, it didn't take much jeering to get me into it. At least I need to be able to hang with my nephews so they can keep respecting their uncles. I'm clumsy on a bike and much worse in the water, so I'm going for the run part first and working my way up.
I thought it would be fun to make it friendly competition. We all collect our run times over the next week for the one, three, and five mile and then go for most improved. Since it's friendly and it's a "most improved" type competition, I figure any kind of terrain counts as long as you keep it consistant and measured.
*The lady is 54 and started her first type of athletic training three months ago to get in shape for the bike part of the triatholon. She currently puts my work ethic to shame.
