My Timex Ironman Watch- Worn 24/7
An Ironman Triathlon consists of swimming a little over 2 miles, biking 112, and then running a marathon. The most famous Ironman event is in Kona, Hawaii. I have never done an Ironman Triathlon. I will never do an Ironman Triathlon. But, I have been wearing an Ironman watch for many years.
Every morning, one alarm on my watch goes off at 5 am. The second alarm goes off at 5:10, so I don't sleep through the first one. I leave the third alarm for special meetings or appointments. I like using my watch alarms because I can turn them off quickly before my husband wakes up. (Yep, I wear my watch to bed.) The buttons and wristband are smooth, so I find it comfortable. Finally, after stumbling out of bed, I try not to turn on any lights. I laid out my workout gear the night before. If I need to see, I use the light on my watch. It glows just enough to light my way. And yes, I use the stopwatch during my morning workout.
Afterwards, I return home sweaty and tired to "morning madness" . When getting my kids ready for school, I use my stopwatch again. It works wonders when trying to get little girls dressed quickly. I say "Ready, Set, Go", and call out the minutes. For an added challenge, I ask them to beat the clock and get dressed under 5 minutes. The timer strategy works for cleaning up toys too!
This watch is perfect when giving kids a bath. No worries if the watch gets wet when washing their hair. Whether washing hands, dishes, finger painting, planting seeds, or catching worms, this watch will not break. The only reason I buy a new one is to change colors. With so many cool choices, I already have my next watch picked out.
The Timex Ironman watch would probably work when swimming a couple miles off the coast of Hawaii, biking 112 miles through lava fields, then running a marathon through pineapple plantations too...
I'm wearing this one right now!
