What Ironman Training Is All About, Especially For Baby Boomers

This is what I love about training, the things that you see along the way.

Had to drop my bike and take this picture, as a result of which Rory dropped me, but not for long. Better than television! Photo by FitOldDog.

  1. Aren’t you supposed to face oncoming traffic? No bike lanes?

  2. Kevin Morgan says

    Hi Marian,
    Not for the kind of cycling we do, though I recommend that for runners. We are usually traveling at 15 to 30 mph, so we stay with the traffic. I would hate to meet oncoming traffic on a long downhill run, where we travel up to 50 mph. We irritate some people, but if you follow the rules, generally things are fine.

    Who’s the good looking guy? Were you able to keep up with him?

    • Hi Rory,
      What a handsome fellow you are on your bike, but it is odd that during the time that I got off of my bike, ate a sandwich, checked e-mail, sent a few tweets to Twuffer, cleared my inbox and then took the photo you were only a few hundred yards up the road. Incredible piece of balancing, that!

  4. Of course, that’s for walkers or runners.
