5 Down…1 To Go

You read that right….1 month until Ironman Lake Placid. I honestly can’t believe it’s almost here . I feel like these past few months have flown by.

Here are just a few thoughts as I head into these next few weeks.

  • Getting in my longest ride of training (and ever) which is 60 miles.
  • Nutrition is one of the biggest components of a successful race (not just an Ironman, but any race). This is one thing I’ll be focusing on and having my race day plan in place.
  • RECOVERY (this is a big one). I’ve got to spend time working on mobility, foam rolling, getting massages and just taking care of my body.
  • Along with recovery comes SLEEP. This is so important  for improving performance, reducing risk of injury and helping to make sure my muscles have plenty of time to rest/recover.
  •  Trusting the process and letting these months of training come together so that I can execute on race day.
  • Overall, I feel really good going into these next few weeks. My runs have been solid, I’m feeling faster and have more confidence on the bike, and swims are strong.

I’m sure I’ll have more thoughts over these next few weeks and will be chatting a bit more about how I’m preparing but now is the time to get focused mentally and physically.


I am beyond excited to make history as one of the first ever Ironman 70.3 Lake Placid racers. See you in September!!
