One week down, 19 to go!

I can't honestly remember that last time I put in a full week of training. But this past week changed that. With only 20 weeks until Ironman Louisville I knew I had to make some changes. There were constant mental battles to talk myself into actually doing the workouts. Each session felt like it was … Continue reading One week down, 19 to go!

My season FINALLY started on Sunday. I have to admit I wasn't 100% excited about it in the weeks leading up to the race. For about a month I was suffering from training burnout.

Dealing with illness and training

Uuuuugh. I've been sick for weeks. It started out as a normal cold and for a while I was working out through it. I started to feel better, still with a cough but nothing I can't handle, so I went ahead and did my bike test from Coach Jen to get a baseline for training. … Continue reading Dealing with illness and training

Triathlon 101: Get a Bike Fit
