I was traveling all week for work, so I didn’t get a chance to do any swimming. The pool is too small at the hotel to bother. I tried swimming laps at a hotel pool years ago and ended up getting sick from the turning. Luckily, this hotel still had good treadmills, a spin bike, and recumbent bikes I could get on to do my Ironman training.Continue reading
We’ve always been meaning to try snowshoeing, and we finally got around to it! It was a bit of an adventure trying to get up to Myra-Bellevue because we had never been up in that area in the winter before. After going off-course a bit, and getting the car a teensy bit stuck in the snow, we finally found where we were supposed to park, so we could head out to snowshoe. We went snowshoeing on the Trestles trail. In the summer, you can take a hike or take a bike, and go over a bunch of trestle bridges and through tunnels.Continue reading
This is the first training recap post, so it should be interesting to see what form it takes. When I read other training recaps, they often incorporate distances, but it’s not going to make sense for me here. I hopped back on my bike Jan 2, 2020 and started my journey back toward building my fitness. I took a bunch of time off from training when my mom got sick in October and then passed in late November. I had started training for Ironman Canada 2020 in September last year, but then I pre-prioritized. It was the right thing to do for me, and when I look back, I don’t regret the choices I made. After about a week of cycling, I finally messaged my coach and let her know I was ready!
2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run. Ironman Canada returns to Penticton in 2020, and I got caught up in the hype. I always knew I wanted to do a full Ironman, but it sure wasn’t happening in Whistler for me.Continue reading
This was the first golf course we had ever played in Palm Springs. It was really enjoyable, and we would definitely go back. This is mostly a picture blog entry, because I don’t claim to be a golf expert, and I’m not going to be able to give a hole by hole recap or anything.Continue reading
