10 weeks ’til #IMLou – happy

Last week was about recovery post Ironman Ohio 70.3 + family time! Doing what makes me happy and spending time with those who make me smile!

Swim: 7232 yards

When you want to take a nap, but your husband says, “The swim is going to help you stay loose and be strong. We are really coached on consistency, not always quality. Keep showing up.” I heeded his advice and showed up!

Bike: 22.1 miles

Riding at home home while the twins entertained me 😉

Run: 13.7 miles

Early morning runs with Basil are the best! #Basillovesrunning

Strength Training: 10 minutes of core strength almost daily  

Weekly Totals: 7 hours & 5 minutes

Quote of the Week:

“Life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you smile.”

Attitude of Gratitude:

Grateful to dog sit for our friends and enjoy 3 days with 3 dogs
Grateful to have Nick at Vitality Massage keeping me healthy and ready to push my limits!!
Grateful that Kim showed up for my Women’s only triathlon clinic. Since she was the only one to show up, she got 2 hours of one-on-one attention and lots of gifts!! 🙂
Only in Iowa does your neighbor walk goats on leash down the sidewalk. The goats allowed Basil and My to smell them and try to play with them. When one goat “talked” to Basil, Basil didn’t have a clue what that noise was or what to do.

Snow cones with the twins!! Yummy!!

How was your week? What were you grateful for last week?! What makes you happy?!

  1. Impressive week of swimming at the race! Well, the running and biking too! Great recovery week, and this one will be fantastic too! Looking forward to some weekend miles with you!

  2. It looks like you had an amazing and fun recovery week-you earned it!

    On a bike ride last year I saw a woman walking a pig on a leash in the city…not a little pig either-it must have weighed at least 150lbs. I was grateful for finally being done working for (or being) the announcer at some races. At one time I thought this might be a career for me, but my heart isn’t in it anymore. I’m excited to spend my summer weekends with my family or swimming/biking at my leisure.
