Sadly, there has been almost no Tri training this year. I almost always have trouble keeping the motivation to training going after an IM race, but I had hoped to do better than this. There have been a few rides and a few runs but nothing that could be considered real training. As it heats […]Read More The Ironman Hangover
This was a great overall experience, I got to train for the race with two really good fiends, we had nice weather and the IM people put on another great race! I headed down on Friday to get checked in and hang out at my friend’s booth at the expo. It was fun to just […]Read More Ironman Arizona Race Report
While I had planned to go on RAGBRAI for vacation this year, I just couldn’t make it happen. Since I had already scheduled my vacation time and wanted to get some good miles on the bike, my friend Len and I headed up to Flagstaff. It’s a great place to go for some riding […]Read More High Altitude Training Days
Not sure how many triathlon people out there have been using the Strava App for biking and running, I love it! It uses your phone’s GPS to track rides or runs and uploads them to their website. The website is really cool, it shows your ride on a map and compares your time to others […]Read More Psyched on the @Strava App
So it’s been about a month now that I’ve been back at the committed triathlon training. So far everything has been going pretty well, there have been a few bumps in the road, but that always seems to happen! I feel like I have made training a habit again, missing my workouts if I don’t […]Read More One Month In!
Yep, took me forever to write about this super fun experience, don’t know why. This is a race I had wanted to do for a long time, when a spot opened up on one of Amy’s co-worker’s team I jumped at the chance. I was a little skeptical about not knowing the people I would […]Read More Long Overdue Ragnar del Sol Post
This coming weekend is a race I’ve been wanting to do for a while, the Ragnar Del Sol Relay! It is a relay race from Wickenburg to Tempe that takes a circuitous path to make it 200 miles. You do it with 11 other people divided up into 2 vans of 6, alternating runners until […]Read More Stoked for the coming weekend!
So far August has flown by, I can’t believe my birthday is tomorrow! It’s been a pretty chill month so far, got in some quality workouts but I have been slacking a little! Overall I have kept up my treadmill running and that is the main goal, everything else will come around once it cools […]Read More So far in August
Pretty much slacked off in the training department this weekend. On the upside, Amy and I had a pretty relaxing weekend together! On Saturday night we were at a house warming party for one of Amy’s friends. Amy’s friend and her husband are from Alaska and there were some other Alaskans there, they were discussing […]Read More The weekend and Must Go Running!
