Aquathlon tonight!

Posted admin Articles

I’m planning to do my second Aquathlon this summer, tonight at 6 p.m. at La Jolla Shores.

What is an aquathlon you may be asking?

Aquathlon is a race involving a swim followed by a run.

This one is a 1000 yard swim in the ocean, followed by a 3 mile run on the beach. Tonight, I’m not planning on actually “racing”. When I did the other one in July I was out of shape. I planned at that time to train for the next one. Well here I am two months later and in no better shape, likely even worse! But, it’s still warm outside and I need a workout, so why not?

I know the water is a few degrees cooler now than July, which is a bummer, but I’m hoping that the cold water won’t drain my energy too much!

I’ll report back here after the race with my results, hopefully they are not too embarrassing!
