The Metabolife Triathlon Blog

In the spirit of “I start now”, our Metabolife Marketing Director, Niki Simoneaux, has decided to do her first triathlon this year. She, along with two other women on her training team have agreed to track their progress and experience through this blog in the hopes that it might inspire others to take on healthy lifestyle changes and challenges. As you can imagine the process has its ups and downs, but you will get to hear it all right here.

Today is a rest day. I am starting to learn how to really listen to my body. I am also feeling, in a bizarre way, what a well-tuned, fine sports car must feel like…putting the best possible things in my body and totally taking care of myself. I am able to perform so much better that I ever...

Group run this morning…we start out the morning with a quick ‘warm-up’ mile. I laugh at this, because a few months ago that would have been my workout. Maybe add 15 minutes on the elliptical, throw in a few crunches and call it a good day at the gym. My frame of mind has completely changed....
