Here in Florida, at least in the panhandle of Florida, there is a halt in Triathlons between May - August. Number one because it's two damn hot - and number two (I think the real reason) is because of hurricane season. Anyway - I like to try something different for a month which will help me improve the 2nd half of my season. And I totally hit the jackpot with CrossFit. I love it. It's competitive and very rewarding. If you are looking for something to keep you active during your off season - try it. It's also awesome because no matter where you travel, you will find a CrossFit gym too hop into for a few classes.
Looks real fun - right? When the workouts get tough - I just think about the last mile of a race and to suck it up!
AND they also have competitions! There is one next week and I can't WAIT to cheer all of my teammates on! I'm not competiting, but I'm going to bring a little triathlon goodness with a cowbell and signs! Can't wait.
Remember Carla? One of my training partners for Ironman Florida? Well, we had a fantastic baby shower for her:
And what do you get as a hostess gift for a Ironmom?
