Why You Should Document Your Triathlon Training Progress

Davey and I went on a 4 mile run today to test out my new MapMyRun App. Well, Davey practically ran circles around me as I plugged along, but I did it and it’s great to see my triathlon training progress!I {If you have an iPhone and don’t have this App, you must get it. It’s FREE and it’s awesome. While you’re at it, get the MapMyRide App too! It’s great to have along on your bike ride as you train for your first triathlon!}

So anyway, Davey wanted to take a picture of me after our run. Welp, I was dripping with sweat and my face was as red as my hair. Seriously, I don’t know why my face gets so red when I run, but it does… and I look hideous. {hence the fact that I covered my red sweaty face}. Triathlon training progress | TwoTri.com

Now that I look back on that moment, I kinda wish I let Davey take a better picture, regardless of how haggard I looked because I think it’s important to document your triathlon training progress. I’m sure you’ll end up having tons of pictures from your actual race, but it’s also fun to have some from your training days so that you can remember your journey and see how far you’ve come.

Sign up for a Twitter account and tweet a picture from your run, or update your Facebook status with details of your fastest bike ride, or Instagram how sexy you look wearing a swim cap and goggles. Social media is a powerful tool and you might be surprised at all the people who will comment and cheer you on and encourage you along the journey of completing your first triathlon. Who knows, you might even inspire someone else to do a triathlon!

So watch out… I’ve inspired myself. More red faced, sweaty pictures coming right up!
