I thought I’d give you a quick update on where we are at with our training and what is happening in our everyday lives…
4 weeks from today is Ironman Wisconsin 2014…crazy how time has flown by!! We have been training hard, putting in lots of hours and preparing our bodies and minds for what is to come in a few short weeks.
With 5 weeks out, we successfully completed 15+ hours of training with a 3.5 mile open water swim event. This last week, we successfully completed 20+ hours of training and are looking forward to the last big push before the taper.
Lately our lives have revolved around our training, but we have managed to find some time to spend with friends, make sure the laundry gets done and that we have healthy foods in our bellies. Snuggling up with my two favorite furry friends and spending time with our twin nieces has also been enjoyable!! Every night I try to read a bit before going to bed (I’m reading the Divergent series since the 4th book came out), but lately I’ve been so tired, that I think I’ve reread the same page multiple times 😉
Starting tomorrow, I’ll be back at school with inservice days on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and students starting on Thursday. With a 24 hour training week this coming week on top of going back to work and balancing chores at home, this will likely be my most challenging week of the 2014 calendar year. I know what I need to do and will get it done…it is only one week after all 😉
What have you been up to lately? How is your training going?
