Triathlon Photo Friday: Running Watch

Today’s Triathlon Photo Friday photo is my Timex Ironman running watch.  If you’re planning to train for or compete in any endurance sports (running, triathlon, swimming, etc.), a watch is a must-have item.  Even though I track a lot of my workouts via an app on my smartphone, my watch is my standby for all my workouts.  I acquired my IM watch last year at the conclusion of the triathlon season.  It replaced an earlier...

Triathlon Photo Friday: Lap Pool

Today, I’m starting a new feature on this blog.  I’m calling it “Triathlon Photo Friday.”  In triathlon training, it seems as though you are always using some new piece of equipment or a new facility or a new running course.  So, I’d like to show off some of the places I train and the equipment I use.  And that is triathlon photo friday in a nutshell. Today’s photo is the view of the lap pool I swim...
