“tri”ing time management

I think I mentioned it in a post before but I’m learning a lot about time management these days. I’m also learning a lot about myself and my personality. For example, I know that I’m easily distracted by other things. I could ride my bike but I really need to clean the (kitchen, office, diningContinue reading ““tri”ing time management”

2018 Tri week 2 of 16

I decided that maybe if I keep a weekly log that I might stick to more of my training! I am in week 2 of 16 gearing up for Rev3 Williamsburg. I’ll be honest, this is the first time I’ve had a coach for triathlon training and it is no joke! I’m not used toContinue reading “2018 Tri week 2 of 16”

Let’s talk 2-a-days

It is week 2 of 16 for my training towards Rev3 Williamsburg. Basically, every week has 4 days that include 2 workouts a day. This means the last 2 weeks I’ve been trying to change my entire life! I’ve had to really buckle down with scheduling and meal planning. I have very little room forContinue reading “Let’s talk 2-a-days”

Back on the horse

I guess that works. Maybe I should say back on the bike? My 12 week training plan for Lycra and Lace starts next Tuesday. I haven’t had a real training plan in months so I’m looking forward to a little structure. After marathon training I was kinda burned out. I was hating my job andContinue reading “Back on the horse”

Triathlon Christmas

Training this week was difficult. With the activities for the holiday and the gym having an odd schedule or being closed it was a rough time to start triathlon training. However, my Christmas was chock-full of triathlon awesomeness. Brand new seat, helmet, and aerobars. I can’t wait to try it all out!! I never thoughContinue reading “Triathlon Christmas”

Not with a bang but with a whimper

It is finally here. Monday begins my half-iron training. Nothing like starting your Christmas holiday off with a major training plan. I’m even going to have to change it my first week cause I doubt highly that my YMCA or my government operated pool will be open on Thursday for my swim that day. AhContinue reading “Not with a bang but with a whimper”

FRS energy + Endurance 10 day challenge #Iownthis

A couple of weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to do the FRS 10 day challenge. I was skeptical because I’m always low on energy and can use a pick me up that is coffee or soda. However, I’m not one to back away from a challenge. So FRS sent me a 10 dayContinue reading “FRS energy + Endurance 10 day challenge #Iownthis”

Proud to be a weekend warrior!

One of the reasons I love the sport of triathlon is that the people are incredibly nice. Its one of the only sports where age-groupers are mingling and racing with professional and semi-professional athletes. These pro athletes are also genuinely nice and supportive of anyone actually out there racing with them. I’ve been on coursesContinue reading “Proud to be a weekend warrior!”
