It has been a long time since I wrote a blog post. Five months, two weeks, and five days to be exact. I didn’t write that often (hello Ironman training) but I dropped off the face of the social media/real life/blog earth. So what happened to me? After Ironman Lake Placid I rode the high… Continue reading An Update
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!
Triathlon is great sport for many reasons. One of the reasons I think so many people enjoy it is because of the social aspect of it. When I first got involved that made the sport so much better than just swimming, biking, and running. I established some great friendships and great training partners. Now my… Continue reading Doing My Own Thing
I knew Monday night that I needed to get all of my stuff packed for the pool Tuesday morning. I also knew it was the coldest day all week with the high being 6 and the low being something insane with the windchill. I am lucky that I park in the garage so I would… Continue reading -11* and a long swim
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
Unfortunately I let another week slip by without writing detailed posts about my workouts. I felt like I was playing catch up all last week. We arrived back in Syracuse late on Tuesday night and that threw me off all week. I asked my boss for Friday off because I just couldn’t focus and was… Continue reading Trying to catch up!
