There are sometimes in life, where you see something, and instantly want to do it, regardless of difficulty, reason, or preparation, you just get that hunch that you've gotta do it. You know its hard. You just get the feeling that it's right. You know?
I was randomly browsing the internet, and Mark on 248AM posted about the First Official Triathlon [link to official website] in Kuwait. I've been training since september for sports day, which passed, and i haven't stopped training. Lord knows how much i want to compete in this, but there are soo many things holding me back:
1) Age, they may have restrictions
2) Parents: A Triathlon to an arab parent's eyes is an excuse to waste a good day's worth of study time
3) I dont have a bike, and i doubt my parents would accept me getting one just for the sake of this triathlon (even though i wanted one in the summer). Their excuse? : 'you'll use it for a bit, then get bored of it'. FOR GODS SAKE IM NOT 5!
4) I'm not fully prepared for it. I havent cycled for ages, I havent swam in a rough sea before (waves tire you), I've never cycled 10K. I've never run 2.5K (1.3K's my record).
Thats a tall order for me, changing my diet and routine for these few hours. I know it wont be easy. I know i'll be aching after each workout/practice session the next 3 weeks. I know it'll affect my studies (not massively, but yeah). I know i might not make it. You know what?
I'll do it.
