Triathlon training on tour. While you guys know about my constant running while I travel, this post is to report to the homies how easy (and inexpensive) it is to do swim training while touring. I swim in most of cities we hit up and almost always do it for $10 or less. The YMCA is all over the place and the other thing I search for are recreation centers. Rec Centers are great for the community! Usually these pools are mellow and I consistently have my own lane (which is unheard of at the parks pool where I train in NYC). A bunch of friends have told me how much they dig swimming on the road, so with them in mind I'm going to work on a list of pools that I swim in all over the world while on tour. I'll be posting that in the next few days and feel free to add suggestions!
So stoked to have completed my first Ironman 70.3 race. It was a great experience and looking forward to the next. The training continues as the next race is in August and 2 more in September. Definitely felt the heat near the end of the ru portion on some of the ascents and my run time dipped a bit below what I normally pace at in races but I made up for it with a pretty smokin fast bike section (which I wasn't expecting!)
