Three down and one to go! My next challenge is the Miami Man Half Iron Distance. I continue to train pretty hard and this month is the toughest one yet. I hope to survive and hope that this Miami weather gives us a break from the heat, rain and high humidity. Just last weekend I completed my first double brick which was an hour and 15 minute bike, than an hour run x 2! I have a feeling will be doing more of these and it won’t get any easier.
Here’s what my next race consists of.
On November 11, 2012.
Distance: 1.2 Miles
The swim will take place in Larry and Penny’s crystal clear lake. The swim portion is open all summer long for swimming. Participants will start on the North side of the beach and swim a .6 mile loop clockwise around the lake
Distance: 56 Miles
The bike ride will go through farmland areas of unincorporated Miami-Dade county (the Redlands).
Distance: 13.1 Miles
The first mile includes paved road and some hard packed dirt road that takes you through the back gate into Zoo Miami where you will run by various zoo animal exhibits.
At that point the run course goes down and back the beautiful palm tree-lined Zoo Miami main entrance, then re-enters the Zoo at about the 4 mile mark for more animal exhibits. The run then goes through non-public areas of the zoo to another back entrance to Larry and Penny Park and from that point back to the finish area.
