It was hot and humid in Florida, but what do you expect in Florida during the summer.
I was able to do a 8 mile run during my short trip and some early morning trips to the health club. I saw a bunch of roadies and triathlete on their morning ride. I wished I was one of them that morning. No potholes to deal with and long flat roads to ride. But I think I would get totally bored riding on a flat course all the time.
So were do you take a kid on vacation, lets see.. Hmm, WANNADO CITY, where kids pretend to be grownups. They can be RUNWAY models, fireman, policeman, doctors, and work in a miniature grocery store, getting paid in play money so they buy cool stuff like beaded jewelry. The bad part is the theme park song is stuck in my head now. At least some of the Wiggles songs has been replaced by this.
So back to training. Heading out to WIBA and meet up with some fellow bloggers for some IronMan training on Saturday. Me and kickstandpam are going to play with the big boys/gals and plan to do the whole itinerary for the day.
1.5 hour open water swim
112 bike ride (the entire IM Wisconsin bike course)
45 minute brick run
So it will be a long day and mid 90's too. But it's the second annual and I was there last year and had a great time and got to meet some way cool blogger people.
So "BRING IT" I say..The real training begins for IM!!
Time to test everything out. Gear, nutrition, clothing, and even how much butt creme I should apply.
Almost forgot the highlight of my trip to Florida. You guess it, Cuban pastries, the only thing better than cheese danishes are guava filled pastries. Yum.. Yum..
