Oh Hello Taper…I’m Happy You’re Here

Guess what? It’s Taper Time. I always struggle with tapering and I’m not sure why. It’s typically people’s favorite time during training. It’s time to enjoy the free time, enjoy lighter workouts, enjoy more sleep, and enjoy all of the recovery. But for me it’s somewhat stressful.  Mentally it’s hard because my workouts are not…

Living in Joy

This post was inspired by the yoga class that I took on Friday with Dani Yarusso at M.Power Yoga. I realized that I haven’t written about my word for 2017 in quite some time and figured this would be the perfect opportunity. For those of you who skipped that post you can read it here, but…

Week 23….You Snuck Up On Me

New Bike Day = The Best Day

Mixing things up and doing a weekend recap because some big things happened. Let me officially introduce you all to Rama…  New bike days are amazing and this one was extra special since this was my first TT (time trial) bike.  When we got home from the airport on Friday, Jonathan had my bike all…

Hello August; July In Review

It’s August which means it’s time to take a look at how Ironman Training went in July. Here’s my recap… How do you feel about your past month’s training? Was it productive? Were you focused and motivated? July was a great month. I feel as though I started off in a bid of a rut,…
