For what seems like the first time since April we are having some prolonged rainfall and with only two weeks to go until the 70.3M World Championships, I had no option than to head to the gym and get onto the Hamster Wheel. Yes, I am a fair weather runner and see it as a pointless venture to head out in the rain (snow I can do but rain.....no way!).
As such I found myself on the treadmill last night trying to bash out a quick hour and trying not to bathe the runner next to me in sweat......and that's the worse thing about treadmills in the gym, there is just no way not to lose half your bodily fluids whilst forming a new swimming pool around the machine. An hour (or more) is not my ideal way to run but it is a necessary evil when the weather decides not to fully cooperate. With that the realization has set-in that the winter is coming and there will be plenty more sessions on the hamster wheel trying to get the run miles in.....it also looks like I will be back there tonight, I wonder what the weather is like on the Big Island!
- Time to start going long. Getting 15miles in close to home and no need to stop for traffic or lights! Races are approaching..... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #ironmantri #xterratriathlon #ultramantri #running #ironmanmaryland #wahooligan
- When these @iamspecialized shoes get pulled out you know that the @xterraplanet race season is around the corner. The holy grail of Xterra equipment .....if you have a pair you have to take good care as they are no longer made! . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #xterratriathlon #triathlontraining #swimbikerun #xterraoakmountain #mtbracing #mtblife #triathlon #triathlete
