After trying to find the “perfect” olympic distance triathlon to do on furlough in May or June I’m now registered for the Nautica South Beach Triathlon April 1 since furlough plans come mid-April got a bit muddy. It looks like you can still finish if you go over 4 hours. Training will be a bit complicated since the day before I registered for the IMG Miami half marathon on Jan 29. I decided it was doable if I run walk. Finishing this will give me a lot more confidence on finishing an olympic tri. Now I’m working on training plans. And I’ve finally decided to start blogging to document this adventure. I did my first training run for the half marathon yesterday. It was my first time to try to run/walk and not just run. It seemed easier than just trying to run. I’ll have to see how things go when the distance increases. This was only 6.22K.
