2021 week 38: snuggles

Last week was a super easy week to recover from the Ironman 70.3 World Championship and get back into routines at home. Oh…and how is it that I’m only 8 weeks away from Ironman Arizona?! We had an amazing trip to Utah, but it sure feels good to be home and snuggling with our girls again! We missed them and I think they missed us.

Quote of the week:

“Dog: World’s best cuddle buddy.”


Swim: 1200 yards

Monday we swam in Glenwood Springs, Colorado on our way home from St. George, Utah. The pool was SO big, but WAY TOO WARM for lap swimming, but it was a great travel break to get out and move a bit. The pool is fed by a natural hot spring, hence the warmer water.

1200 yards in 1,078,000 gallons of 91F water at 5761 feet elevation.

Bike: 21.9 miles

Sunday I did some intervals on the bike. It felt good to be back on the bike and in a training routine again!

Time to put the head down and dial in the Ironman training. How are we only 8 weeks out from Ironman Arizona?! #LFG ⚡️🔥

Run: 4.05 miles

We have so much to learn from dogs!
🐶 They are always in this moment.
🐶 They always have fun.
🐶 They are so happy.
🐶 They play hard and rest hard.
🐶 Their unconditional love is endless.

4 family recovery miles on a beautiful morning!

Strength Training: 15 minutes of core strength daily

Weekly Totals: 3 hours & 59 minutes
30 minutes of yoga

Attitude of Gratitude:

I definitely needed this flush of the body after that epic Ironman 70.3 World Championship race in St. George! Thanks Nick, with Vitality Massage, for getting me ready to crush this next 8 weeks going into IMAZ. Oh…and I love the new bed!
All the snuggles! I’ve missed this so much! 🥰
The fire in the sky was gorgeous!
Love these two…even if I have to share my pillow with Jersey and they sometimes make it impossible to sleep. 🤪
This girl missed me! 🥰

What were your highlights from week 38 of 2021?!

  1. I just read the last two posts–what an amazing couple of weeks you’ve had! I love a good road trip and can’t wait to go on another one someday 🙂 I’m so happy to hear that you had fun during your race even with the weather being a bit bonkers-all the smiles in the pictures told the tale. The kit that you wore went so well with all the reds and browns in Utah 😉 Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Amy Lynn! It was fun to get to road trip and the views were gorgeous! I hope you get to go on a road trip soon! The kit was properly named “Red Rocks” and designed specifically for this race. It’s definitely one of my favorites! 🥰
