I'm also a scuba-diver and have seen some fish riding around down there..  they tend to get swallowed up by the good swimmers though... the one I haven't seen yet are the fish running ....

 

Always think Tri..

The kids (2 teenage daughters) however, think we are both out of our freaking mind.

That's hilarious!  My daughter thinks the same thing - but she's 36 (and about 50 pounds skinnier).

When I first brought up the idea of doing a triathlon, I wanted to do the Mother's Day sprint at Disney World.  My husband said, "why waste your time?"  I was shocked by that until he followed it up with " that's too low a bar to set - find a 1/4 IM and I'll do it with you." 

I'd guess that there's resentment, but also a bit of fear.  Perhaps your partner thinks you're going to get all fabulous and find someone new while she liked you the way you were before you started all of this.  Try to include her in it even if it's just a little bit.  If she doesn't want to participate right away, maybe she'd like to volunteer at a race.  Ask her to be your race support crew.

I feel your pain, Not only am I exercising all the time now, I'm spending money on gear, saying no to happy hours, and constantly talking about my up-coming event.  Sometimes I feel sorry for my wife.  I better do something nice for her, Like upgrade my bike so I can be faster to have more time to say good night to her when I go to bed at 9:00 P.M.

When I told my husband that I'll be joining a gym to workout more in the evenings he commented how I'm never home anyway. I guess I really am out all the time either pursuing personal commitments or training...

Yeah, um, you have two Athenas noticing you but not your medals. It's win win!

Then again, the medals are a bonus!

goofee girl - 2011-04-21 11:50 AM ................ pursuing personal commitments or training...

When I talk about personal commitments all I get is "What about your commitment to me?" or "What do you actually get for your personnal commitments?"

To which I respond, "Seems to me not dying from a heart attack at 45 benefits us both."

So my wife told her friend that she wanted the fat me back. She thinks I spend to much time training, I asked her if she would rather me sit on the couch drinking Beer all night then. She didn't like that idea so I guess the fit me is here to stay weather she likes it or not!!
