Nations Tri Training: Week 2

July 7, 2014

Week 1 of triathlon training…success! Mostly? I think. Coordinating schedules with a husband who has evening classes and around a 15 month old is not nearly as easy as one would think. By the numbers… I did 20 miles on the bike, 5 miles of running, and 500 yards of swimming. Last week…. Monday: Swam 8×50 […]

Summer Racing Goals

July 3, 2014

I’m excited to get back into racing shape. With triathlon training under way (exception, this morning because little man got Tubes in his ears) I figured throwing a few fun races into the mix this month and maybe next isn’t a bad way to keep myself motivated and training hard for Nations Tri and for […]

Weigh In Wednesday: Week 2

July 2, 2014

Happy Hump Day – or pseud0-Thursday as it may be – given the short week. I’m pretty pumped for this week – triathlon training began and I’m feeling good about workouts…despite my shotty eating the past couple of days (and over the weekend) when I was home with Ethan after his surgery (he got tubes in his ears […]

11 Week Triathlon Training Plan

June 30, 2014

So, as I mentioned the other day, I signed up for the Nation’s Tri. They get you in with $20 off coupons. I’m pretty excited. I’m 11 weeks out so I figure I can make a go at it – it’s flatter than my last tri so I’m hoping to do better. I know I’m […]

Regaining Sanity

June 29, 2014

Sometimes, after two long weeks of playing single parent and managing a sick child, you just need an afternoon off. So yesterday,  I took it and got to hang out with some awesome lady pals. I enjoyed some good beverages. Some good friends and a fun game. And enjoyed some DANG good food. After our […]

Why I restarted Couch 2 5k

June 24, 2014

I’m not a beginner runner. I’m not a fast runner, but I am most definitely not a beginner runner. I don’t think anyone who’s run a full marathon can label themselves as a “novice.” But then, I don’t think you need speed to be an intermediate runner. It’s all about experience. So after my RRCA […]

Meal Planning Monday

June 23, 2014

With hubs gone, meal planning has been necessary. I’ve been cooking things with leftovers to make it easier to prep Ethan’s lunches (which I usually do the night before). So I decided to give my hand at sharing my meal planning ventures with y’all because well…why not right? Especially now that I’m really focused on […]

Friday Five: Beat the Heat

June 20, 2014

This weeks’ Friday Five from the DC Trifecta ladies  is about sharing our favorite ways to beat the heat. This week I was pretty lax on my workouts. I’m not training for any particular race right now, Adam was gone and it was stupidly hot even at 6pm when little man and I got home […]

Fueling with Vega Sport

June 20, 2014

As I’ve decided to start from scratch with my running, I’ve also decided to rethink all my fueling and eating. I think since ZOOMA and my RRCA training I’ve wanted to get my ducks in a row to make sure I’m being the best runner I can be to be the best coach I can […]
