Training in Paradise

I noticed a road when I was riding the other day marked “Jungle Trail“.  I did some searching to find out what it was all about and decided it sounded like the perfect place to run today.  There was no place to park at the entrance from 85th Street so we drove down the path a bit to the Captain Forster’s Hammock Preserve, the first place we found to park — Bryan and Brody came with me.  I decided that I’d explore the path through the Preserve first, and was absolutely amazed at the path, another reminder of running in Costa Rica.

There are quite a few interesting paths off the main trail that I will save to check out another day.  Running on the main jungle trail is great!  Friendly faces, like I remember from when I first started running — everyone smiles, says hello and wishes  you a good day!  The trail was paved with mansions and estates, but what I saw that was most appealing was this home:

Truly captivating, I believe it is a working farm.

All in all a good training run, I can still target pace and finish strong but as I do every year  I wonder, how do I run an entire marathon, no less an Ironman marathon, at 9 minute pace?  Well, that’s all still to be seen.

Another good training day in Vero Beach, followed by an amazing dinner from my favorite blog, Paleomg.  Tomorrow starts our virtual swim so I will be in the pool in the morning, followed by either a run or a ride, need to check the weather.
