When I first started this blog I thought it would be cool if I had a name and a little theme going on. After 5 months of thinking about it…I think I finally came up with something! If you haven’t already guessed…
What do you think? Weird? Some others were Turtle Triathlete, Triathlon Turtle…but I went with Endurance Turtle…I like the idea of a turtle because I am slow…and usually just chugging along but I get the job done!
Vote on the box in the upper right corner and tell me if you like it our not, or give me some other suggestions.
It is starting to look better for this Saturday. The storm may not come in till Sunday, and we will get to sneak in on Saturday for the event. It will be cold, but I can deal with the cold. I went out to the Rose Bowl last night and did laps and my temperature gauge on my bike said it was 47 degrees. It took me 35 min to do a little over 9 miles (3 laps). This is really good training for the Pasadena Triathlon because we will do a run around the loop, then 3 laps on the bike and then swim in the pool. So far I have been able to run the loop in 35 minutes and can do the bike in 35 minutes. With transition times and the swim portion, I an predicting a 1:20 finish time. It would be great to get it below or at and hour…but that would require me to be a faster runner! And cyclist! So, we will see…I am really looking forward to doing it and I know it will be a blast.
I will try to run tomorrow if it is not raining. For some weird reason…I know that I am picking up on my training, but it is almost like I am on auto pilot. I never really think much of it and I just go out there and do it. Which I guess would be a good thing. Within the next couple of weeks I am going to fit in a “long” run at the Rose Bowl loop. Not sure how long or how I will do it…but I am starting to think two laps ought to do it. I actually might do that Monday if I feel up to it since I have the day off. Woo Hoo!
P.s. If you are counting…that is a PTO day on Friday and a holiday on Monday = 4 DAY WEEKEND! That’s like a min-vacation!
