Where to even begin?!
Bruno and I clearly are terrible bloggers.
Here is what has happened in the past FIVE MONTHS:
- Not one, not two, but THREE sprint triathlons
- One half marathon
- One Ragnar Relay in Pennsylvania
My feet are feeling great. I feel absolutely no pain anywhere, not even my knees as before the surgeries.
Today, I am a triathlete. — Almost exactly one year after my second bunion surgery, I crossed the finish line of my very first sprint triathlon. — 🏊🏼♀️400m swim: 9:00 T1: 2:10 🚴🏼♀️20k bike: 40:00 T2: 1:23 🏃🏼♀️5k run: 28:58 — I performed faster in all three sports than I thought I would. I had estimated my swim at 11 min, my bike at 45 min, and my run at 31-32 min. My transitions were ok but can be improved.. I struggled in T1 to get my left foot to clip on so I pedaled with one foot for a while and couldn't start the bike lap on my Garmin. My next goal is to figure out how to shave off at least five minutes 😏 — @swimbikebruno and I were in the newbie category, and both got first place! It was a sweet surprise. Thank you to my husband for being an amazing coach and training partner, especially on the hardest days. — All I can think about now is showering, taking a nap, and counting the days until the next one! — #swimbikerun #trigirl #triatleta #triathlon #triathlete #triathlontraining #trilife #swimming #cycling #running #roadtoironman #ironmantri #triathlonsprint #sprinttriathlon #girlswhotri #cyclelikeagirl #cyclinglife #runnergirl #runnerscommunity #runninggirl #fitfam #fitlife #fitchick #fitcouple #fitlifestyle #embracethespace #stravaproveit #milesandmiles #raceday #raceweekend
We are in the middle of race season now and I feel very strong. I’ve got my first Olympic triathlon in 3 weeks, and then a 1.2 mile swim across Cayuga Lake in 4 weeks. Then I’ll shift focus to long distances again with a 106 mile bike ride and the Wineglass half marathon to finish the year. Oh and, I gotta squeeze some 5Ks and 10Ks in because I KNOW I can beat my old PRs.
