32 Weeks ’til Ironman Boulder

Last week was my final week of the semester, the last week before winter break, and full of holiday chaos. Thankfully, that did not stop me from having a great week!!


AM: 1 hour strength training


PM: I was announced to the 2015 Coeur Sports Ambassador Team, which I am SUPER stoked about!!



AM: 50 min 4×4 min Fast…this was my #FaveWorkout of the week 😉


PM: 55 min swim focusing on drills and swim stroke

Yes…that is the Iron Hippie in the water behind me 😉


AM: 1 hour 3xLadder trainer ride


PM: 68 minute run with friends outside, followed by 45 minutes of TRX full body strength training


AM: 1 hour short ladder swim


PM: A much needed massage…the whole hour was spent entirely on my legs. OUCH!!



AM: 85 min run on icy roads with friends…I only fell once, but I have a bruised knee as a result.


I followed the run up with a 30 minute core workout before spending the afternoon with family.

A little Ironman motivation…wearing my IMWI finisher shirt


AM: 2 hour bike ride with a 20 minute TT…I was hoping to have an average speed of about 17.2 mph, but only maintained a 16.8 mph average. I guess that means I have some work to do!!


Weekly Totals:

Swim: 2.67 miles

Bike: 42.5 miles

Run: 20.65 miles

Strength Training: 2:15:00

How was your week of workouts?

  1. You must have felt on top of the world this week! I got my two strength training sessions in, so I consider the week a success too 🙂

    1. Thanks Jessie! It was a good week and I’m looking forward to having a couple of weeks off from work to focus on training and house work 😉

  2. Awesome week of training! A 20 min time trial does not sound like fun- awesome work 🙂 My week was a bit slower! I’m trying to work out one day less to let my body rest more. It was a challenge, but I’m incorporating a quick yoga session on that day just so I move a little!

    1. The 20 min TT wasn’t so bad and gives me something to work for until the next one. I’m glad you are finding what works for you during pregnancy. The baby will be here before you know it 😉

  3. Congratulations, again, on making the Coeur team. They are very lucky to have you!!! I like the Iron Hippie photo bomb. ☺ Enjoy the time off during the holidays – way to step up the training during such a busy week!!!

    1. Thanks Kristen! I am super excited to be a part of the team 🙂 I am trying to enjoy my break from students, but it started with getting sick, so I’m not sure how much enjoyment it will be 😦

    1. Thanks Leslie! The momentum was lost when I was put on medicine on Tuesday for pneumonia…now the Iron Hippie has it. I am hopeful that this means that 2015 will be illness-free 😉
