The triathlon is not going to happen

My friends all want to do a triathlon together and I am resisting it.

  • For one, you have to pay in order to compete.

80 bucks in order to do a horrible thing. It is amazing to me that people are willing to swim, bike and run for a cost. I feel like I should be paid to do something that terrible. There is something called a sprint triathlon that has pretty low distances too. I could do the sprint triathlon today with no issue. All my friends are saying we have to do the standard one that you need to train for. Who wants to train for a workout? The distances are you need to swim .9 miles, bike 25 miles and then run 6.2 miles. Unfortunately, you have to go in that order as well. I can’t imagine hopping out of the water to then bike. Have you ever swam long distances before? My legs always feel totally dead after it. Then to bike for a while wet would be just terrible. My butt would be so unhappy being on my tiny seat that long. Ending with the run would be the worst part though. It basically would be me walking and being sad. How long do standard triathlons take as well? I don’t want to be at it all day. I also am not a person that can pee in the ocean. So does that mean I am possibly not peeing for hours and not consuming water or a meal? None of that matters. The idea of training to do something like that holds no appeal to me.
