As a runner, all I typically used in nice weather was running shoes, socks, shorts, sometimes a hat, a (preferably) tech T shirt and my Timex Ironman watch. While training for my 18th and last marathon during the winter I bought a water bottle on a belt because several of my 20 milers would be away from access to water.
Similar to Beastie, I'm doing the swim & bike portions of a Tri this weekend and have to pack a lot of crap! Tri shorts & top, goggles, wetsuit, bike shoes, socks, baby powder to put in my socks so I can get them on my wet feet after the swim, Body Glide for places where my wetsuit can chafe and also on my lower legs & ankles to help it slide off, a water bottle, my bike
, sunglasses, towel, a throwaway shirt to wear for up to 2 hours while I'm on a ferry in the Delaware Bay waiting for the swim start. Like many of the large Triathlons, we're required to set our bikes up in the transition area the day before. The logistics for this race require parking about a mile away from the transition area/Expo area on Saturday so I'll have to walk or ride my bike in from there. Also on Sunday I'll need to return and take a shuttle bus from parking sometime after 4:15am
so I can place the rest of my gear (bike shoes, helmet, bike gloves, sunglasses, socks, towel, etc.) with my bike and board a ferry before 6:00am. all this for a 35/100ths of a mile swim and a 12 mile bike ride
My workout will be teaching cycling class tonight. I did shoulder PT exercises earlier this morning.
My boss at the gym emailed to ask if she could have a potentially new instructor teach my class next Wednesday morning as an audition and would I also take the class with her (my boss) to help with feedback. A couple of our instructors are moving so she needs at least one new permanent one.
Bonus: I HATED
carrying anything in my hands when I ran! In warmer months my longer runs were usually routed by a couple of water fountains.
