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?

A bob!!!

Cowbells make everyone push harder...if for no other reason than to get away from the sound... Good thing you found something fun to fill the lull
