MDW Recap

June is here. The weeks are flying by and I know I’m getting behind on these posts. Memorial Day Weekend went by super quick but was able to get in some great workouts despite the icky, rainy weather. Saturday: 3 hour bike + 2 mile run + 2000 yard open water swim It was raining…

Weekly Workouts: 5/21 – 5/25

Another busy busy week. I’m finally back on a normal schedule. I like routine and like the same schedule week to week, so this has been working very nicely. I’m keeping things simple with these posts (as you see, training for 3 sports is much more time consuming than just running). I’d also love to…

Weekly Workouts: 5/14 – 5/20

It was another busy week of Ironman training. I’m fully recovered from my 70.3 and am gearing up for my next tri on June 3. This will be my first Olympic Triathlon of 2018 and my first local race with all my triathlon buddies here in Naples. I can’t wait!!!!! Here is a look at…

IM GulfCoast 70.3 Race Recap – Part II

It’s RACE DAY!!! My alarm went off super early (3:30AM) to get in breakfast and get over to transition around 4:45AM when it opened. It was shaping up to be a PERFECT day. Calm water, mild temps (until the run portion) and little wind. Here are the maps of the course. The swim was one…

Gulf Coast 70.3 Race Recap – Part I

I can hardly believe that the weekend is over and it’s time to recap my 2nd 70.3 race. So many good things to share with all of you on the days leading up to the race and the actual race.ย Here we go. Thursday: Travel Day to PCB We hit the road around 7ish for Panama…

Race Week for IMGC 70.3

WOOHOO for it being race week for my first (and only) 70.3 of 2018 (as of yet). You can read about my latest workouts and the switch to triathlon training in my last post here. I’m a bit nervous. I prepared for 6 months for my first 70.3 last September in Lake Placid and this…

Triathlon Life in Full Swing

Hi everyone, I’m still here. I know I’ve been away for awhile, but life’s been a bit crazy post Boston. I think I’m finally over the post marathon blues and am ready to dive into full triathlon mode (well sort of). I mentioned in my Boston post that next up on the calendar is Ironman…

Post Boston & What’s Next

Before I get into some deep thought about Boston, I wanted to share how Tuesday went and my recovery. I woke up Tuesday a tad sore. My calves/quads were on fire (hips too), but walking definitely helped. We got up, got packed and then headed downtown for breakfast and coffee before checking out of our…

Boston Recap Part III: RACE DAY

5:30AM: Jump out of bed and start to get ready! Truth. I just jumped right out of bed and started to get ready. I didn’t look outside or check the weather because I knew it was probably bad. I had mostly everything laid out already so it was pretty quick to get ready before my…

Boston Recap Part II: Race Day Prep

Well…it’s Sunday. And that means that tomorrow I’ll be running the Boston Marathon (eeek). I got up early to get in a snack before getting picked up to drive the Marathon course. Mark, an old co-worker of mine, was so generous to include me with his athletes to preview the course. I will say that…
