20 weeks ’til #IMLou – the end is near

Last week was the last full week of school for this school year! There are 3 days left with students and 3 without before I am free to play all summer long and act like a professional triathlete! I am definitely looking forward to it! The end is near 🙂

Swim: 8518 yards

Chasing dreams means doing the work to get there!
When you are committed to your dreams, sometimes you have to tap into every ounce of determination you have to make your dreams come true!
An open water swim with my fave!!

Bike:  76.1 miles

Easy spin of the legs to flush them out! Look at that bluebird sky!!
50 mile ride + 1 mile run with my fave on this HOT + STILL day is done!! It wasn’t pretty, but it is done!!
Cycling on the surface of the sun today!! Holy hell is it a HOT + STILL one today!!

Run: 21 miles

13 miles as the sun came up over the horizon Wednesday morning!
I sandwiched my last Friday with students for the school year between a double run!! 5 am miles = lots of humidity acclimation!!
I sandwiched my last Friday with students for the school year between a double run!! 2 pm miles = lots of heat acclimation!!

  1. Congrats on getting through another school year!! I volunteered for the middle school band teacher yesterday for a concert (and it was a full moon) and I nearly stuffed a few kids into the tuba. The last few weeks are rough for a teacher. I hope you have an amazing summer 🙂

    1. Thanks Amy!! The end of the school year is definitely a struggle!! Today and tomorrow are the last two days with kids…can’t wait to be done!!

    1. Thank you! Last week’s training was a bit low…too much on my plate last week. Looking forward to summer break and acting like a pro triathlete (training + recovery focus)!! 😜
