Triathlon racing every weekend

Well, not quite, but almost. Thank goodness for and living in Florida.  I finished my last triathlon last Saturday.  The next one isn’t until 25 September.  I have done four or five sprint distance triathlons since Ironman.  Mostly they’ve been one weekend after another.  Training gets boring after a while, so it’s nice to actually race!  The last race was the Battle at Fort Desoto, which is on the Gulf side of Florida.  Very nice and flat.  I managed to break the 20 mph barrier on the bike for any triathlon!  I came in 16 out of 22 in my age group.

Right now I was about to go out and ride the bike for 1.5 hours, but it’s pouring rain – an unfortunate aspect of Florida in Summer.  So, I guess I will do the indoor trainer instead.  After that I’m going to do 30 minutes of strength training.

My next race is the Escape to Miami triathlon in Miami on 25 Sept.  I signed up for the olympic distance race.  It will be my first non-sprint race in a while.  Thankfully, I have four weeks to train for that.

The only other triathlon that I am signed up for this year is the Miami Man half iron distance triathlon in November.  It is supposed to be the best in Florida!  I can hardly wait.


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