2022 week 21: race week

Last week I had my first triathlon of 2022 and was SO excited + ready to toe the start line of a triathlon! The Clear Lake Olympic Triathlon was a good test of my fitness before IMDSM race day! I’ll have more on that race in it’s own post coming soon!

Quote of the week:

“Winning doesn’t always mean being first. Winning means you’re doing better than you’ve done before.”

Swim highlights: 6500 yards

Tuesday I did a 1000 yard time trial focusing on my effort and laying one more brick in the foundation for IMDSM coming up in just over a week.

  • Warm up:
    • 400 swim
    • 8×50 easy down, strong/fast back (15 sec rest)
  • Main Set:
    • 1 min rest
    • 1000 time trial (20 sec rest)
    • 100 easy (20 sec rest)
    • 5×100 at IM effort (20 sec rest)
  • Cool Down:
    • 200 any stroke
Proud of my execution and effort for my 1000 TT while carrying LOTS of fatigue from peak IM training.

Bike highlights: 143 miles

My favorite bike from last week was during the Clear Lake Triathlon. Let’s just say that I am SO DAMN PROUD of how I executed the day in the conditions we were given. Sadly, I don’t have any pics of me riding last week.

Run highlights: 28.6 miles

Wednesday I had a double run day with both runs on the treadmill as the weather wasn’t super cooperative (we had thunderstorms on and off throughout the day and I am not one to be out in lightening if it’s preventable). These runs were kept at an easy pace allowing me to kick it up a notch (or two or three) at the Clear Lake Triathlon on Saturday. Making sure to keep the easy days easy allows you to go hard on the hard days…aka race day! Sadly I don’t have any pics of me running last week.

Strength Training: 15 minutes of core strength daily

Weekly Totals: 16 hours & 29 minutes
30 minutes of full body strength training
30 minutes of yoga

Attitude of Gratitude: What were your highlights from week 21 of 2022?!

Thank you Kyle with Kyle’s Bikes for giving Mojo your race blessing!
All the SBR love in one day!
There is beauty even in the midst of the storm.

Look at that blue sky and sunshine! Vitamin D for the win!
Getting to meet up with some Coeur Sports sisters, race, and test the fitness for IMDSM was SO MUCH FUN!
I GOT to play Saturday at Tri Clear Lake and do a little speed work in the midst of IRONMAN training. I’m SO DAMN PROUD of my effort, my execution, and my mental endurance.

2 weeks to IMDSM #LFG ⚡️
