- Luckily it appears that others haven't got the memo that the pool is open.....been liking the empty lanes during lunchtime swims these past few weeks! . . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #ironman #triathlon #triathlete #ultramantri #swimbikerun #gopro #ironmantri
- In the world of COVID restrictions not all #coffeeride stops are glamorous! Rode out to @riseupcoffee in Edgewater, awesome coffee as always but with limited capacities it was had while basking in the morning sun in the parking lot. Life could be worse.... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #riseupcoffee #iridespecialized #cycling #cyclingphotos #swimbikerun #triathlon #ironmantri #ultramantri #xterratri

How about a little bit of Southern Comfort.......
Well the recovery week is close to being over and the second build phase of the training period starts tomorrow, hopefully with a 4.5hr ride if the ice storm passes and gives us safe road conditions.
To begin this phase Sarah and I are heading south for a few days to warm-up and take in the charm of Charleston, SC. So from Monday thru Friday we are away on a Banks Mini-Training Camp, well that's what I am calling it, Sarah is calling it a vacation!
The bike isn't travelling with us but the trunks, swim toys and running shoes are. I have already found a public 50m pool (just minutes from the hotel) and hopefully Charleston will have some good running routes. To be honest it really is a vacation but I just hope to be able to run everyday and have at least a few trips to the pool. Running is the key as the day after we get back I have the B&A Half-Marathon and I want to use it as a good indicator of fitness as I work up to the National Marathon on March 29th.
Having never been to Charleston or South Carolina for that matter, we're looking forward to taking in its warm hospitality (and warmer weather!), gracious living, vibrant history, and Southern charm. Hopefully I won't come back with too much southern hospitality stuck to my ribs......
