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
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!
I was in Huntington Beach, California for a work conference from Friday, November 14 through Tuesday, November 18.

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
