9 weeks ’til #IMLou – Done!

I’m a bit behind in posting this…

Last week was full of adventure! I took myself to Madison, Wisconsin at the end of the week to do my own training camp. Thanks to Coach Kelly for putting together a challenging weekend for me! I learned so much and overcame lots of challenges! It wasn’t perfect, but it added a lot of volume to my training and I’m grateful my body was open to the challenge.

Swim: 6673 yards

“Eighty percent of success is showing up.” ~Woody Allen
Why? Know your why. Remember your why. Why do you do what you do?! I love triathlon because:
-I love feeling free!
-I love how super fantabulous I feel when I overcome a challenge that once seemed too daunting to surpass!
-I love the community + people I get to meet!
-I can!

Bike: 144 miles

Criss cross applesauce…nailed my Z3/Z4 20 minute working set on the bike!!
Hard work pays off!! Thanks to my #sub6orbust buddy Steena for pulling me up ALL. THE. HILLS On 2 loops of the #IMWI bike course!! She’s so ready to crush #IMWI this year!!
Making fitness + pushing myself in Madison on the #IMWI bike course!

Run: 25.3 miles

Jazz hands to celebrate an easy morning run!

I finally ran up Observatory hill without walking on the #IMWI run course! One loop done in pretty miserable conditions!

Strength Training: 30 minutes of full body strength + 10 minutes of core strength daily  

Building strength for #IMLou!!

Weekly Totals: 18 hours & 1 minute

Quote of the Week:

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” ~Nelson Mandela

Attitude of Gratitude:

I love this sweet pea!!
So grateful that I got to stay with my college friend, Christina, and her girl, Gracie, in Madison at my solo training camp!
Normatec recovery boots are a MUST when putting in all of the hard work!

How was your week? What were you grateful for last week?! Have you ever done a solo training camp?! What did you learn?!
