Catching Up!

So I am a bit behind, and it's just time to just pull it together and post!

Things are good here!

I saw the Dr. on Thursday, and he said, "it's time to train for your Ironman."

So, I am doing it.

I did a great trainer session on Thursday, and Saturday I rode 30 windy hilly miles on my own, and ran 9 miles on the real ground (no treadmill) on Sunday with my mom! So, it begins! 9 weeks and 5 days!

It will not be my fastest, but with the conditions of the race, it never was going to be my fastest. But I feel like I AM going to be able to do it. Time to start visualizing the finish line and the finisher's store ;-)

So, Trakkers--is AWESOME! Updates abound!

First off--my shoes:

Since I have actually been training, I have been running in these puppies, and I love them! They are not as cusion-y as the shoes I had been running in, and I was worried. But I really like them a lot. They just work! They feel like they make sense on my feet, and they give me what I need without overdoing it. I am a happy little camper in them, and they look good ;-) I hand all of my shoes over to my mom when I done with them. She liked them too, and she knows that they will turn into her shoes in a few months!

I also received this awesome box of SBR sports. Awesome. I seriously love this stuff. Can I just focus on my current favorite thing in the box?

This glorious little can rocks my world. I chafe a lot. Seriously. I have to use some kind of anti-chaffe stuff for every bike ride and every run. This stuff is a spray. That is awesome, because it is SO much less likely that I am actually miss a spot. I must say that I really love this stuff.

You guys know I am sponsored by these guys, just so you know :-)

I should be getting a new schedule pretty soon, and I am excited to get into it (cautiously of course!).

Allright--that was the beginning of a catch up--I'll actually be back soon!


  1. this is all so good!!! I am excited for your progress!! Let me know if you want to get together for a ride :)
    Keep up the good work

  2. Awesome!

    So when the Doc said, "It is time to train for an Ironman" ... did you perk up like Rocky Balboa in Rocky II when Adrianne said, "WIN!"??? ***Bells in the background***

    Was Mickey sitting in the corner and jumped up and yelled, "What are we waitin' for?"

    Sorry I am weird.

  3. YAY! Fantastic news! Keep up the awesome work and the posting. You have no idea how many people you inspire :)

  4. I am now a Tri-swim junkie, it is so nice not smelling like chlorine all of the time! Glad to hear training is headed in the right direction for you!
