2021 week 48: hello offseason

Last week was offseason week #2 so I had no swim/bike/run training until Sunday to allow my body to fully recover from Ironman Arizona before starting to train again for the 2022 season. It was full of dog walks, relaxing + dog snuggles, boosting our immune systems, supporting our twin nieces, and sleep. And now, I’m SOOOO ready for snow and offseason adventures! Mother Nature, can we please get lots of snow?!

Quote of the week:

“Champions are made in the offseason.”


Swim: 2200 yards

Sunday I jumped back in the water, splashed around without a plan, and was reminded of how much love I have for this sport! I am forever grateful for the privilege to do what I love and have fun in the process!

2 weeks can drag on forever or go by in the blink of an eye.

2 weeks ago today I crossed the #IronmanArizona finish line. In the last 13 days I have done zero swimming, zero biking, and zero running. While I know it was good for me to take a break from what I love to allow for proper recovery, the last two weeks have felt like an eternity.

Bike: 0 miles

Run: 0 miles

Strength Training: 15 minutes of core strength daily

Weekly Totals: 2 hours & 25 minutes

Attitude of Gratitude:

I’m boosted! #getvaccinated (not up for debate…I’ll delete your comments)
“Should I stay or should I go?!” Jersey saw some animals to chase! 🤣
My snuggle bug! 🥰
Post race massage to flush out the body! Thanks Nick, with Vitality Massage!
The girls love our neighbor…especially when she has treats! 🤣
Watching 7th grade basketball to support our niece…it’s fun to have them live so close to us!
Going to a swim meet to support our niece…love having them live close to us!
All the snuggles!
