Ironman Training

The Run and Crossing the Finish Line

July 29, 2012

Most of the humor of my IM day occurred during the swim and bike.  The run was bit more tough, although I met some great friends along the way. The first 7 miles of the run where surprisingly tolerable for me.  Had no idea how my body was going to tolerate all the activity.  My […]

This Will Make You Laugh

July 22, 2012

It’s been one week since I crossed the finish line and became an Ironman. Thankfully, I’ve been feeling mostly great with very little pain – just some muscle fatigue. My blistered feet have healed beautifully and I made it to the gym a few times this week for some recovery workouts. Being that this was […]

My First Taste of 40 – I Am an Ironman!

In less than two weeks, in eleven days to be exact, I will be celebrating a milestone birthday that will bring me into another big decade – my 40’s.  I’m having a bit of a difficult time accepting the fact that I have reached this significant point in my lifetime as I never imagined I […]

10 Days and Counting

July 5, 2012

Cannot believe it is only 10 days until I attempt my first (and probably last, well, the last one I will ever swim in Lake Michigan) Ironman 70.3.  Twenty weeks ago, when I started my training program, race day, Sunday, July 15th seemed so far away. Thanks to my dear friend RS, I have been […]

June 24, 2012

My Little Bump in the Road – Had a Little Accident

June 11, 2012

For almost 15 weeks now, I have been moving through my Ironman Training without too much excitement and pain (very thankful for that).  However, everything changed last week as my 3 lovely, little boys got out of school 🙂 All of a sudden, I am doing a lot more working out at “odd hours” of […]

Tell All Tuesday

May 22, 2012

Someone mentioned that it’s “Tell All Tuesday” today so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to come clean about a few things. So my “pretty preparation” and personal hygiene habits have taken a dramatic shift as I have entered the toughest weeks of Ironman training.  Cannot tell you how many people have commented […]

Oldie and Moldy

April 4, 2012

Cannot believe I am going to share this crazy story with you. Anyone who knows me well, understands how my fridge and pantry operate.  Personally, I have a very low threshold for anything old or moldy.  My hubby will be the first to attest to this because I am always sniffing stuff and throwing it […]
