1 week ’til #IMMT: Northeast + Canada Trication Part 3

Hello race week! Where did you come from?! I Have been awaiting your arrival for so long! Now that you are here, I’m kind of wishing time would slow down a bit so we could savor this a bit longer!

We made it to Mont Tremblant last Monday and have filled our week with tapering workouts, family time, and relaxation.

Swim: 2187 yards

We got to swim in one of the most cleanest, nicest pools ever in Mont Tremblant! Why can’t we have an indoor facility like this in Ames?!

Bike: 31.5 miles

Riding in our condo thanks to the rain outside.
Putting in some work, but alas the storms showed up and cut our work a bit short for this ride!

Run: 14.7 miles

Getting my happy on with my last double digit run done before race day in this beautiful place!
These running/biking trails are spectacular!
Running with my fave for a few miles to shake out the legs post massage.

Strength Training: 10 minutes of core most days

Weekly Totals: 5 hours & 54 minutes

Weekly Positives:

Crossing the border into Canada!
Arriving at our condo…look at this view!

  1. Wow! Those weeks seemed to have flown by – but I guess you are the one who did all the work, right? It looks absolutely amazing there and I’m so glad you’re having a good time. I’ll be thinking of you as you race prep – can I have some of that pizza???? Have a great time and I look foward to seeing more!

    1. Those weeks have flown by! I can’t believe it! It has been a great adventure! I’m sad to be sending my sister and her family off, but it has been great to have them here! I want that recipe for the pizza! So yummy! Thanks so much Kelli!

  2. RACE WEEK! I’m so excited for you 🙂 I hope you get to soak in all the pre-race fun that Mont Tremblant and Ironman has to offer. That was very nice of you to babysit the girls so your sister and BIL could go out and explore the town without kids in tow…Dave and rarely get time without the kids so it’s a always a treat.

    1. Thanks Amy! We will definitely soak up the IMMT experience! It was a treat to babysit for us, since we don’t get to see them nearly often enough living on the west coast. 😉

  3. So excited for you!! You have worked so hard and I’ve enjoyed every blog post about your journey. Enjoy every moment this week and on race day!

    1. Thanks Andrea! I can’t believe how fast time flies by! I’m getting excited to for your race day! You’ve been rocking your training! So fun to watch your journey unfold! ❤️

      1. Yes, Kecia…that’s the plan. After LP I said that if I ever did another IM, it would be MT. I can not wait to read all the details in your race report about how you rocked that course!
