When I first decided to hire Matt he told me about his plan of riding 100 days in a row. At the time I kind of laughed but I also was like, “game on.” I love a challenge, so I told him that I was up for it. I didn’t think about it too much… Continue reading 100 Days of Riding in a Row Thoughts!
Somehow it’s already Thursday and I haven’t posted since Sunday. I have been pretty exhausted all week (what’s new) so the last thing I have wanted to do at night is get on my computer. I’ll do a quick re-cap of my week. Monday – only one workout! Who knew I would look forward to… Continue reading Oops, it’s Thursday..
I started Tuesday out by NOT forgetting my work clothes when I headed to the pool at 6:15 a.m. I am pretty sure I double and triple checked my bags before I left and I did a mental check on the way there. The pool cleared out as soon as Elyssa and I got there.… Continue reading I Did Not Forget My Clothes + 30 Days Complete!
And just like that Monday is about over! Since I only had a 60 minute ride at 90 + cadence I put that off until the evening. I was ravenous (what’s new) after work and stuffed my face with some pita chips and this granola popcorn I bought at Costco. Super healthy. I guess there… Continue reading My First ‘Easy’ Week and some J. Simpson
Oh Saturday. My long ride day. Why don’t I just wake up early when I have no idea what I am doing and get on my bike and finish my ride? Well I got up a little later in the morning and hung around with my ride looming over my head. A little after 12:00… Continue reading Final Workouts of a Tough Week
Oops. I failed again. It’s Sunday night and I am just sitting down to type a few posts up. Maybe it can be my New Year’s Resolution to be better at typing posts! I am sure I am forgetting things that happened during my workouts that I would like to remember or have you all… Continue reading Tuesday – Thursday Wrap Up
Thursday rolled around fast. I had a lot to get done! Friday I was heading to California for a work conference. I was a little freaked out that I would be away from my bike, the pool and all my other workout related items. I met Elyssa at the pool around 6:30 a.m. We had… Continue reading Ironman Training Day #11 – Last Day Home for 5 days!
Oh Tuesday. Tuesday is turning out to be the longest swim of the week. I dragged myself out of bed and made it to the gym. It was still warm out at this point in the week so I wasn’t miserable dragging my butt into the cold pool. I had 4,400 yards to get through.… Continue reading Ironman Training Day #9 & #10
Oh I am such a slacker with my blog posts! I don’t think I have that many followers so I am sure no one missed them too much this week. Going back to Monday… It’s funny how I was glad I didn’t have to get up and ride in the morning, but come the evening… Continue reading Ironman Training Day #8 – Heart Rate Test
I made it to Sunday! One week of Ironman training down, less than 40 weeks to go? That seems like such a long time but I know July will be here before I know it. I actually woke up at 6 a.m. and really had to go to the bathroom. I drank a ton of… Continue reading Ironman Training Day # 7 – 1 Week Complete!
