This week…was all about chasing dreams! Putting in the work both physically and mentally to turn my dreams into a reality. My dreams won’t come true if I don’t do the work to get there, so this is what the work looked like:
Swim: 9100 yards
I had some challenging swims this week…they challenged me to try to keep a consistent pace, which is something I REALLY struggle with. Thanks to Coach Kelly for continually pushing me to swim at a more consistent pace!
Bike: 58.8 miles
I had a couple of key workouts this week on the bike to help me build my bike strength and push my threshold farther and farther from my comfort zone. I must say…I love the challenge! I love the feeling of success after pushing myself WAY out of my comfort zone! I love to push my limits and find that they are not the limits they once were! I love to find that what was once hard is now easy! Hard work is definitely paying off and I’m super excited about it! Thanks to Coach Kelly with Track Cat Fitness for making me #trackcatstrong this year!
Run: 14.9 miles
I only had a couple of runs this week, but I was super lucky to get to run with a girlfriend on Friday morning! I was also SUPER lucky to have such an amazing outdoor run on Sunday morning in the misty cool weather!
Strength Training: 2 hours & 15 minutes + 10 minutes of core strength daily
I had some good strength sessions this week! Box jumps definitely scare me, but I’m working to overcome my fear and become more #fearless. While I’m afraid of missing the box, I know I’m getting stronger by incorporating them into my schedule. Thanks Coach Kelly for pushing me out of my comfort zone! I also had an amazing home yoga session thanks to Amy’s yoga download suggestion. It was the most perfect yoga session for me! Thanks Amy!
Weekly Totals: 12 hours & 22 minutes
I had a massage on Friday…OUCH! After all of the hard work I’ve put my body through in the last couple of weeks, it was much needed! Thanks to Nick with Vitality Massage for keeping my body happy and healthy as I push it to new levels!
I received my belated birthday present in the mail from my tri sis from down under! I can’t wait to read these two books!
Breakthrough Nutrition‘s Goodnight formula is the best! It helps me sleep and I don’t wake up groggy in the morning. This is the perfect #huginamug for recovery + sleep! Take advantage of a 10% discount by using code WELOVESNBS at checkout!

I’m so glad you liked the yoga class! I’ve tried many different at home yoga programs/classes/dvd’s and YogaDownload is by far my favourite. There is just something about Jackie’s voice that helps me relax.
It looks like you had another great week-keep up the hard work! 😀
Thanks Amy! I even think the Iron Hippie would like the Yoga Download. I’ll have to see if I can get him to give it a try! 😉
I’m in awe of your 10 minutes of core strength a day! Way to go Kecia!
Thank you Megan! I started off with 5 minutes a day 2 years ago and have slowly increased it so that my goal this year is 10 minutes daily. I try to do it first thing each morning (which doesn’t always happen) to ensure it gets done. I also mix up what I do each day so I have good variety 😉
Awesome week! Sounds like some great workouts! I was in San Fransisco last weekend and had an amazing 2 hour run in the sun!!! Bring on summer!! 🙂
Thanks Leslie! 2 hour run in the sun…so AWESOME!! Jealous! 😉I too am looking forward to summer! ☀️
