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!
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!
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
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!
I woke up at 5:30 a.m. on Friday morning. It actually didn’t feel that bad. I pressed snooze a few times but was ready to go on my bike at 5:59 a.m. I just had to ride for an hour which seemed like nothing after the 1:30 ride the previous night. I honestly just couldn’t… Continue reading Ironman Training Day #5 & #6
I did not sleep well Monday night. I swear I had anxiety that I was going to miss my alarm and miss my swim. I HAD to go in the morning because I had to ride at night. I got to the gym a little before 6 a.m. As I walked by the pool I… Continue reading Day # 2 + #3 of Ironman Training
Today (this was supposed to post on Nov. 3) begins the next 8 months, 3 weeks, and 2 days of my Ironman training adventure. I received my first week of workouts from my coach. Since I can’t run for 2.5 weeks I am going to be swimming and running A LOT. Since no one has… Continue reading Day # 1 of Ironman Training
