Courir sans tuque, ni mitaine... Is it summer yet? 😂🙄

No es la foto más bella de la vida, pero me recuerda algo fundamental y es que si yo decido querer mejorar tengo que aprender a incomodarme y BASTANTE; querer ver cada vez mejores resultados implica un esfuerzo extra que no siempre estamos dispuestos a hacer, sea por miedo a esa sensación de cansancio, pereza o simplemente no es tan grande nuestra motivación de ver qué tan lejos podemos llegar que no está dentro de nuestros planes dar esa milla extra.
Todos los que decidimos movernos lo hacemos con un objetivo y lo disfrutamos muy a nuestra manera, aquí no hay ni bueno ni malo pero no hay nada más claro que como en la vida misma si queremos lograr algo extraordinario nuestro esfuerzo va a tener que ser proporcional a eso 👊! @rnrmedellin

Momentan trainiere ich einfach so vor mich hin....nach Lust, Laune und Zeit. Ich genieße die Freiheit spontan entscheiden zu können welche Disziplin 🏊🏻♀️🚴🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️und welche Intensität auf der Tagesordnung stehen. Sicher ist ein strukturiertes Training für einen Formaufbau zielführender, aber momentan einfach auch schwierig in den Alltag zu integrieren 🤷🏼♀️... heute war ein #koppeltraining im #paincave geplant ... 50 km 🚴🏼♀️ -> 5 km 🏃🏼♀️ ... allerdings ist der Koppellauf dem misslungenen Zeitmanagement zum Opfer gefallen 😬... aber die Radkilometer sind in the Books 😅... Happy Weekend Sportsfreunde 💪🏻.... #swimbikerun#triathlete#triathlon#trilife#trigirl#cycling#cyclinggirl
What if I fall short? I don’t want to fall short with those that I love and with all this training... my family, with work, my church, friends...(you get the idea). Today, I was so sore and and body was feeling a little beat up but I still ran at lunch. Then, I hurt my hamstring.
I’m hurt and I begin asking myself, “am I training enough?” Or “Am I pushing myself too hard?”
hours later...I feel much better and my inner fears turn into a pep talk.
Feeling better now, I’m reminded,
I started this journey with a word to “persevere!”
It’s all ok! I will persevere!!!! It’s my job to do my best. I will give all I do to the Lord and I will persevere!
Persevere: continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition ... Game on! I will try! I can do it! So can you!
The Daily Grind
I’ve started adjusting to ship life. There are definitely positives and negatives to this way of living but the best way to adjust is to focus on the positives!
Although the work is continuous, I have the time to explore the islands we visit and to get to the gym. My motivation so far whilst on this ship is at a high. So here’s to the next few months of pushing myself to new limits 💪🏻
Well well well, would you look at that...another day and another adventure on two wheels #whodis#catchmeoutside
The good news about running so many trails lately is that my bike legs seem to be coming back better than I thought 🤷🏼♀️👏🏻
It’s been almost two weeks since my 50miler and I’m feeling back to normal for the most part.
I’ve decided that I’m going to have some fun with unstructured “training” over the next couple months before I get back into things with two later season 70.3’s. Can’t wait to see you guys out there!
In the meantime, I shall continue to find inspiration in your perspiration as I scroll thru my feed 👊🏻💦😉
Today’s training is brought to you by…
• Scare the shit out of yourself in the water
• Active recovery day
• I did not train after work yesterday because my body said NO and go take a nap instead
• 1 hour workout
• Be out of the gym door at exactly 1900h
Now that I have convinced my self that I can tri, in perfect conditions, it is time to get down and get serious with my base training. Following the 80/20 principle — 80% of my runs will be focused on Zone 2 and be at the lowest heart rate possible. While 20% of my runs will focus on interval training switching from Zone 2 and Zone 5.
Cycling season is just around the corner! 80% commute rides and 20% long weekend rides. 80% easy rides and 20% with easy/max effort intervals.
Strength training 80% focused on smaller stabilizers and assisting muscles and 20% on the large main muscles.
For my swim, I will spend 80% of it working on technique and form wearing swim shorts to help with my hip position. While 20% of my swim training will focus on the mental aspect of things. No swim shorts; just me dealing with possible sinking legs on turns and during exhaustion. Today I started this drill and my brain was switching between being confident in the water and being scared shitless by the thought of freaking out in a dark open water without a wetsuit on.
Open water swim season and training is coming very soon!
Today’s workout: 1 hour on the indoor bike trainer. Just me and the kiddos today and my 2 year old is sick🤒. While she napped in the afternoon I let my 4 year old watch a show so I could get a ride in. I use indoor cycle in the workout app on my #applewatch so I don’t what my estimated distance would be, but I figure an hour on the bike is pretty good. Finished up with a 25 min core focused yoga workout. It was a long, challenging day and I didn’t get a whole lot done but I’m happy that rode my bike 😃💪🚴🏼♀️ #feelingaccomplished ⏩bacon cheeseburger with sugar free BBQ sauce and broccoli slaw tossed in ranch for dinner 👊🏻💣🍔 #fueledbyfat#ketogenicdiet#ketotriathlete#ketocycling#biketrainerworkout#swimbikerun#homeworkout#momlife
25 minutes of kettlebells and plyometrics was all I had time for today toward my strength and triathlon training. I have a race in a month, and my only goal is to stay strong and injury-free. I do this for fun and camaraderie🤙🏼 🏊♂️ 🏊🏼♀️
I have hypermobility in all of my joints, and an over-mobile shoulder girdle can wreak havoc on the head and neck, not to mention leaving one to carry very injury-prone shoulders (translation: I need to swim from these joints!); 🏃🏻♀️ 🏃🏻♂️ I wanted to incorporate hip-hinging explosive power (translation: every single step of a running gait requires that), and a little heart-rate variation before I picked my daughter up early from school... so. Rock & roll. 🤘🏼🎸 🚩@zachbushmd’s Nitric Oxide Dumping routine for 4 minutes 🚩Kettlebell Rack&Suitcase Carry: a 30lb kettle bell in one hand like a rolled suitcase, 20lb KB racked up at my shoulder, while walking across the room slowly; maintaining a stable shoulder structure (so the arm isn’t hanging off the joint), ribs pulling down on exhales, torso strong and supported. It is spinal strengthening, deep abdominal working, improves gait, and is a favorite of mine for improving posture dramatically. It’s also stupid easy. Walk the room 2x forward and back, change hands slowly. Weights will vary based on strength! 🚩 20 Kettlebell Swings with 20lb KB: hips, booty, abdominals, spinal muscles, deltoids as break-pads. Fluffin-A. 😏 🚩10 Explosive Jump Squats: squat down, explode up to extended hips and engaged glutes (legs will be straight; the explosion up comes from glutes firing 🚀); land, repeat immediately. 🏳️ Deep breaths to bring down your heart rate to a stable breath cycle..., pick up the kettlebells, and start over. 🏁3-4 rounds of each, a little salsa on the way out... to get back to what’s important! 💪🏼 .
💖 Week 11 Day 4 💖

Just watched a David Goggins video so figured now is a good time to set a goal. This may take me many years... not sure. I want to achieve IRONMAN All World Athlete Gold, which is top 1% in the world in my age group. Have top 5% under my belt. Haven't done the math on this but really freakin' hate math anyways. I also know I have a ton of hard work to do in the water to even sniff at this goal. Here's to the one life we have to live.. #swimbikerun#triunknown#triandbrew#fullcirclesquad
The good, bought a new mountain bike today! The bad, I wasn't able to buy some upgrades because of the time constraints. The ugly, apparently I decided to tell my friends I want to ride the bike soon as we buy it. So then they rode theirs to the bike shop and I booked a Grab to get there. And the plan was we'll go home riding our bikes. Come 6pm and we bought all the peripherals we could get along with the bike itself and pedaled our way out. Thirty minutes in and I was feeling the tension on my hips and knees. We stopped at the nearest Mickey D's and ate but let me tell you, at this moment I was just so tired there was no way I was gonna be able to make it home riding the bicycle. After eating we went straight from one corner to another. Long story short we had to stop for more than five times because I was out of breath the whole time, and it feels like I'm going to throw up, and I could only imagine how much I cursed for even making that stupid decision, and now my everything hurts, God help me...
