A Recovery Week…WHAT?!?

That’s right…this past week was a recovery week. Everyone has been asking if I’ve recovered from the Columbia Tri and the answer is…yes. I actually felt great on Monday (aside from my right calf being tight and knotted up). Recovery didn’t mean days off, it just meant less mileage and I was okay with that….

MDW + Other Baltimore Fitness

Happy #MDW everyone!! I hope you all are having fun, relaxing, sweating, spending time with friends and enjoying your vacation (or staycation). If you are looking for things to keep you busy (and sweating too) the rest of the weekend and in the next couple of weeks I have you covered. SUNDAY, MAY 28: 10am…

Columbia Tri Recap

I am beyond excited to get this recap up on the blog. After a week of stress, self-doubt and being extremely nervous, my first olympic triathlon is in the books. Could not have asked for a better way to kick off the tri season here in Maryland. Great support and loved that I had the opportunity…

Race Week

Many of you know that I raced in the Columbia Triathlon this past weekend, but before I get to writing a recap I wanted give you an idea of what life was like leading up to race day. Monday: 2000 Meter Swim + Teach Barre Tuesday: 45 Minute Bike (12.7 miles) Wednesday: Easy 30 Minute…

Egg-cellent

Now that you all are bored with reading about my exciting Ironman training life,  I figured I’d go back to food chat for a bit just to mix things up. My ingredient of the week is… EGGS. I love breakfast food all day long and eggs are my absolute favorite. I stumbled across an egg…

Week 10: Single Digits Till Columbia Tri

Happy Monday. Week 10 is in the books and I have my first olympic distance triathlon in T-6 days. (umm…panic MODE!!) But…WE GOT THIS!! I’m going to try something new this week and start sharing my intentions that I write each week in my Believe Training Journal. As much as I love having all of…

Getting That Perfect Fit

CONFESSION: I’m starting to get the hang of this bike thing (well…at least I’d like to think so). The bike (and triathlons in general) are all new to me and it’s taking some getting used to. It’s not like running. You can’t just get up, lace up the sneaks and walk out your front door….

Breakthrough Week (With Some Lessons)

Happy Hump Day friends. I’m sure by now you can probably guess what my week 9 of Ironman training looked like if you have been keeping up with my blog regularly. I won’t continue to bore with all the specifics, but for those of you who are interested here is the breakdown: Monday: 2100 Meter…

Happy Cinco de Mayo

I don’t know about you, but I love tacos and the excuse to eat tacos. In honor of Cinco de Mayo I figured today would be a great day to share some of my favorite taco (and non-taco recipes) with you all. I’m pretty sure whoever came up with Taco Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo is…

#WomenRunTheWorld

If you follow me on social media you probably know that I spent the weekend in the Big Apple cheering on my sister in the Shape Women’s Half Marathon. Disclaimer – I did not run the race, but I’m writing a recap anyway because well….it was a glorious sub 2:10 PR kind of day and…
