Triathlon Training

Well, last night was the first time that I combined two activities into my workout. I rode my bike on the indoor trainer for 25 minutes, then took a 5-minute break, then jogged for 25 minutes. It was a very good workout. After I got done with the bike ride, my legs were very sore (I pushed it very hard). But after the jog, I rested for a few minutes, and realized that I was surprisingly not sore. I am getting more and more excited for my first triathlon. I will probably start doing some swimming in March. I am debating on where to go to do the swimming...we'll see.

Panorama Shot

I just got my new camera, the Canon PowerShot S5 IS. It's pretty cool. One thing that is especially fun is that it has a Stitch Assist mode. In this mode, you can take a picture of a landscape, then you can use software that came with it to Stitch the pictures together.

I took some pictures of Puerto Vallarta when we went on the Mexican Riviera Cruise last October, and now have software that does a very nice job of putting the pictures together. Here is the final picture:



You can tell where the seams are, but overall, it does a nice job.
