Thirty-Seven Weeks to Go

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  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.

Training Summary:

Swimming:  30 mins TI drills

Biking:  5 hours indoor trainer

Running: 13 miles


I live in Orlando, Florida and participate in marathons and triathlons.
