I'm nearly 3 weeks out from Houston and knee deep into my next endeavor: Training for my first Triathlon - on my 30th birthday in March. (3/29) I'm having a great time swimming in the pool and in the ocean.
Last week, swimming with an experienced member of the LA Tri Club, I swam a mile at Venice beach. We were accompanied by dolphins and sea lions - it was amazing!
I've also been hopping on the bike a lot, but the rain has grounded such efforts the last few days. Today I'll be running for my 3rd day straight - perhaps an easy 8 miler. And tomorrow if it's clear I hope to go for a long ride....we'll see!
Body's pretty sore - I must admit I'm obsessed with training at this point. With Tri, I'm learning there's always something you can do. I've been doing some core/light weight work too...but I think I'd be best not to push things TOO far. I've still got 6 or 7 weeks to go!
In other news we're in the midst of planning more screenings of "Running for my Father." Details to follow...
Reviews continue to come in as well:
And to be completely random here are a few cool bird pics I took last week up in SB. White Tailed Kites (endangered raptors) are becoming my favorite...
