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, dining … Continue reading “tri”ing time management
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 to … Continue reading 2018 Tri week 2 of 16
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 for … Continue reading Let’s talk 2-a-days
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 and … Continue reading Back on the horse
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 though … Continue reading Triathlon Christmas
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. Ah … Continue reading Not with a bang but with a whimper
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 day … Continue reading FRS energy + Endurance 10 day challenge #Iownthis
I've been forcing myself to do workouts this past week. I"m not sure if it is my allergies or just being extra sleepy. Nevertheless, my motivation has been a little lacking! So hope this provides everyone a little extra motivation this week!! Go out there and get that workout in!!
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 courses … Continue reading Proud to be a weekend warrior!
5 years ago I signed up for my first half marathon . I signed up because I wanted to do something before I turned 25! I wanted to have accomplished something I thought was difficult! If you had told me then that 4 years later I would have completed 4 triathlons I would have told you … Continue reading The Challenge…
