It’s just thirty-seven weeks until the Ironman 70.3 Miami triathlon. My training took a hit this past week. I’m not sure if it was the extremely cold weather, the plugged ears I got after swimming, the seemingly endless tiredness or what, but I didn’t manage to do much running. I did do some swimming drills in the pool on Tuesday. That was the first time in nearly a year that I had been in the pool. Of course, at the end I was congested and my ears ended up plugged. I always forget to use was removal systems before going in the water after a long period of time.
On the bright side, I bought a new triathlon bike! It’s the Cervelo P2 with Ultegra Components. I bought it online from the nice folks at all3sports.com. Using measurements that I took, they confirmed the size and shipped it off on Thursday. It should be on my front door step today! More on that later.
