7 weeks ’til #IMMT: Stronger

I honestly can’t believe how quickly the summer is flying by! How is it possible that we are down to 7 weeks from race day and leave for our long summer vacation in just 3 weeks?!?! Here is a snapshot of last week:

Swim: 5455 yards

Doing the work, even when we can’t swim outside because the pool is closed!
Outdoor swimming is the best! So #grateful to have my fave at my side for so many of life’s crazy adventures!

Bike: 101 miles

Easy spin post long run to loosen up the legs!

This seems to be the theme this week! I just keep doin’ the work!
Mojo and I spent some quality time with Mother Nature! I love the open roads on 2 wheels in Iowa!

Run: 30.8 miles

Learning lessons is always better to do during training rather than on race day! Today I learned a fair number of lessons during my long run.
Giving everything I had during my morning hill repeats, required a quick rest in the street when I was done!
Run off the bike post long ride!
This morning’s hilly run was powered by Kona motivation thanks to Coeur Sports, my new Orange Mud handheld water bottle, and a whole lot of #believe as I drove my tired legs to the top of each hill I encountered!

Strength Training: 45 minutes + 10 minutes of core daily

Weekly Totals: 14 hours & 58 minutes

Weekly Positives:

Strong, athletic women are the best! Summer doesn’t get much better than this!
Spending some much needed time with my sole sister!
Love these peeps!
