Smithpoint Triathlon

The Smithpoint Triathlon feels like forever ago now. As expected work has been crazy, but I’ll try and actually get a recap together for the race. Paul and I had discussed doing a triathlon before IMLP. We had decided against doing a half, and instead doing a weekend in Lake Placid to train on the…

Ironman training is freaking hard

It doesn’t take a genius to know that Ironman training is hard, but it has hit me in even more ways than I expected. While I was in Boston, for what was probably the first 10-12 weeks of training, I had my set schedule. Work 9-5ish (lucky me normal work schedule) Straight to the gym by 6:30…

Friday Fun/IMLP training Week 15

Week 15 and 16 of training have completely flown by. They both were rough weeks with scheduling and getting workouts in. I didn’t even write down my workouts for week 15, which is unheard of for me. I have my nice little excel sheet that I record what I did each day, what my total training…

IMLP Training Week 14

Week 14 of training ended with us just 70 short days out from IMLP. 70 days!!! Craziness. The main focus of this week was the long ride on Sunday, but before that I had to try and figure out my ironman training schedule around the work schedule. Monday: Swim about an hour and a half, which…

Ironman Training Weeks 1-13

I clearly have not done a great job of recapping week by week of Ironman training. I’m not going through every single week from start to now (cause that is crazy!) but I will give a quick recap of how it all went. Paul had given us some workouts to get started while we were…

Quick break down on life lately

How Ironman Lake Placid Happened

So how did Ironman Lake Placid come to be? Here’s how it all happened… Way back when Paul first was thinking about doing his first Ironman, he wanted to do Lake Placid but hadn’t signed up in time so he went with Louisville instead. He continued to talk about doing Lake Placid and at some…

Friday Fun

Summer Fridays are my favorite! I’ve been lucky that every job I’ve had I didn’t have to work on Friday in the summer. Who knows if this will stick in the next job, but everyone keep your fingers crossed. Every weekend so far I’ve had something to do which equaled not being able to sit…
