Training is going well, and I'm starting to get excited for my race next month. I haven't reached the point where I can sustain 3 hours of high-intensity exercise, but I'm getting closer.
Here is an update to a previous post that required some follow-up..
From "a fun way to track your progress", I've continued to swim, ride, and run, and my progress circles are growing. (running & biking circles are centered at my house; swimming is centered at the Huntington Beach pier.)
Running - green circle
Biking - red circle
Swimming - white circle
Running & biking, I'm getting closer to leaving the State, which is pretty cool. It's actually not too much further to the Gulf of California in Mexico! As for swimming, it's still a long way to Catalina Island, but those two dark blue spots just in front of my white circle are huge oil drilling platforms - I should reach them in the next week or two. (That'll be a great place to stop & catch my breath!)
