Feeling like a triathlete again

The past few days I finally started feeling like a real triathlete again.

First brick workout of the season (trainer ride then outdoor run) with bursts of max effort and a threshold section that left me an extra sweaty mess, enough to "mohawk" the hair! That was followed by a short but solid run around the neighborhood, with the hip and glute feeling darn good. Yes, I'm officially "back" as Coach said, and without a moment to spare. The first race is in less than two weeks.


First open water swim and first time in the wetsuit for the season. That initial 100 yards was brisk, even in the wetsuit.


With friend Krista, and my pink flamingos!

Ready, set, GO!

  2. Yess! I had one of those moments last week when I finally got back in the pool after a spin class. I wish I could do Smith Mtn this May but I guess I have to be at my own graduation instead (or not?!) Keep up the good work!

    1. I suppose there is only one graduation and lots of races. Yes, that is a tough call ;-) Happy Graduation!!!!
