So Tigerlily suggested a triathlon as a goal for me, specifically the Danskin next summer. It's been rattling around my head all morning, which is usually a sign I'm about to have a whim and GO FOR IT. I hate swimming (even in a pool), I'm dangerous on a bike, and (until discovering VFFs) dislike running. But hey, running is now much more fun. I just ran a mile around the soccer fields before watching my son play. Furthest I've run in probably 30 years.
So maybe I can overcome my fear of water and bikes and do this crazy thing? Seems no more crazy than not using shampoo, eating butter, or walking around barefoot
So...two concerns. Doesn't something like this translate into chronic cardio? And second....how do I approach something like this without getting injured along the way? I do have a tendency to overdo it. I downloaded Slow Fat Triathlete onto my Kindle, and that may well answer some of the second question, but I'm very interested to hear experiences/recommendations from primal-folk.

Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
