You know it was a crappy week when the laundry is full of “real” clothes instead of sweaty sports bras, cycling shorts, etc. There isn’t that much to say this week. I had another crappy sick week. I swear I have been been sick so many times during the winter. I just can’t catch a… Continue reading Ironman Training Week 18 Summary
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!
My last hard week before an easier week. I felt pretty good going into this week minus some stomach issues I had later in the week. Body wise I felt great! Strong and determined, that’s for sure. Monday: One workout Mondays! About 3 weeks and this will be my rest day. Hallelujah the end of… Continue reading Ironman Training Summary Week 12
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
Better late than never! Good thing my coach sends me detailed workouts so that I remember the kind of torture I went through 🙂 Monday: Bike – heart rate test! This was a great workout because my numbers plummeted which is AWESOME. I went back and looked at my HR test from the start of… Continue reading Ironman Training Week 8 Summary
This was definitely a big week! I had a few really crappy workouts and a few really good ones. Monday: Bike 1:35. This was supposed to be a moderate tempo ride. It started off fine and then got really ugly! I had a 10 minute warmup and then 4×15 minute sets. Most of the sets… Continue reading Ironman Training Week 7 Summary
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
