Swim…Bike…Run…REST!

Posted Jun 18 2013 in , , , , , ,

So its been a few days since I completed my Olympic triathlon and I did say I would post a recap of how the experience was, but honestly it’s taken me a few days to figure out how I feel about the whole thing. And I’ll be honest, I’m still not sure if I’ve figured […]

The Swickie

Posted Jun 12 2013 in , , , , , , , , ,

Swickie: Swim hickie that results from shockingly painful chaffing on the neck while swimming. This isn’t a technical term, well at least not that I know of, but it should be. For me, a swickie will result during long distance training swims (when I wear a certain bathing suit) because I only breathe on one […]

The Fourth Event

Posted Jun 3 2013 in , , , , , , , ,

If you’re competing participating in triathlons, you probably already know about the fourth event. But if you’re new to the sport, or you’ve up until now, participated solely in ‘pool triathlons’ you may not be familiar with the totally exhausting, always challenging, sometimes embarrassing event of…putting on the wetsuit.

The Body That Showed Up

Posted Mar 15 2013 in , , , , , ,

I actually struggled with posting this or not, but…finally I decided I should (obviously) because training for an event isn’t always flowery sunshine runs and personal bests and high fives. Sometimes… Tri training is in full swing and for the most part it’s going well and I’m enjoying it. And that’s always the ideal thing […]

Why Tri…Again?

Posted Jan 23 2013 in , , , , , , ,

Last week (or was it the week before?) I came clean about my goal to train for an Olympic triathlon. And I appreciate all the support, thanks everyone! One of the questions I’ve been asked is, “Why another Olympic Tri? Why not kick it up a notch?” Okay, fair question. Why am making Olympic triathlons […]

Tri Me: Putting It Out There

Posted Jan 12 2013 in , , , , , , , , , ,

In the past I’ve been pretty open on this blog about my workout/training goals. Even if nobody read about them, it was good for me because I’ve always been goal oriented in this regard. And if I put it out there that I’m going to do something…I do it. Or die trying. Okay, maybe not […]
