One more day of hard training tomorrow before next weeks last triathlon race for the season. Redcar sprint triathlon which will be my first draft legal race on the #giantpropel road bike. Next week will all be about tapering for the event and building freshness and reducing fatigue ready for the race. Make sure to follow next week on how I plan to taper!
There's just something about cycling 🚴🏻♀️💨4hrs in the Iowa wind 🌾that necessitates a post-ride beer!🍻🤷🏻♀️To everyone starting out on #ragbrai tomorrow, eat an extra slice of pie for me out there! 😉🍰....might have to balance out this beer with some extra @sosrehydrate 😆
Mental somersaults today. I’ve seriously never worked harder for anything in my life, which sounds crazy when this is just a triathlon AND it may not even happen tomorrow due to inclement weather. But training for a tri was never just about one event for me. It has been lesson after lesson about enduring hard things to become stronger in body, soul, and mind. That’s why I use the hashtag #justgetstronger because no matter what shape you’re in, your age, your life circumstances, we can all work hard to get stronger...one good choice at a time. And strength is one size fits all—it looks good on everybody! Tri training pushed me to heal through multiple surgeries, to overcome my limitations with scoliosis and hyper-mobile joints. I’ve found the athlete inside of me and rain or shine—even a cancelled event —isn’t going to keep me from pursuing my longer term goals. #mentaltoughness #triathlon #justgetstronger #bostonstrong #swimbikerun #trimom #bostontri
Hj foi dia de sofrer, feliz demais c o resultado em uma prova dominada pelos moradores de Colorado. Não sabia o quanto a altitude poderia afetar meu corpo, largamos a 2400mts e chegamos a 3000mts Na água antes de chegar na primeira boia já pensava em desistir, tentei largar na frente e fui bem até começar a faltar ar, sai do bolo e fui no meu ritmo. Na bike uma escalada sem fim, dor na lombar do início ao fim.. saindo p correr pensei que iria recuperar bem, mas o corpo não respondeu... ótimo aprendizado p não brincar mais na altitude 🤣 Agora bora pro próximo desafio...

So much fun to be back out there racing. Two years ago I didn't know if I would race again. Last year I was able to get in a couple of sprints. This past winter I had hamstring surgery with some complications with healing. This meant surgery number 2. Back at it today and so much fun! #triatthegrove2018 #happyspot #swimbikerun # #agegroupwin

Another big training day. 5 hours on the bike covering 95 miles followed by a 40 minute run. Still struggling with my aero position and my confidence while on the aero bars, which is costing me a lot of speed. One day at a time though. Today’s numbers were 95.3 miles in 4:59 with a normalized power of 192 watts at an average HR of 145 generating a TSS of 258. I followed that with 5.5 miles averaging 7:22/mi at an avg HR of 149 generating a TSS of 56 for a total TSS on the day of 314. #Trainhard #FromwhereIride #Triathlon #aeroiseverything
This has been a long time coming. My father inspired @kcweber and I back in 2010 when he finished #ironmanlakeplacid I want to thank everyone again for constant support. Tomorrow’s going to be a great day!
