Some Goings On and Random Thoughts...

  1. I know I haven't blogged in forever, I'm sorry! Honestly, I've been feeling overwhelmed and busy and unmotivated and frankly working hard just to stay motivated enough to finish my workouts. Which I've been doing.
  2. So yeah, to sum up: Ironman training = being very very tired
  3. Finals time sucks- not because I have a lot of finals, more that I have to tutor athletes through theirs, plus none of my friends have been able to hang out because of studying and stuff, which hasn't done much for my mood.
  4. I just ate entirely too much pizza just now after a track workout. Blehhh...
  5. I did a 5 hour ride and an hour run on Saturday and got insanely dehydrated
  6. ...but I got to take an ice bath afterward.
  7. It was about 90 degrees out. holy hell. literally.
  8. But... I got to spend part of my ride with the ex-mayor of my town, who used to be a cat 2 rider and a track national champion back in the day. He told me I had amazing leg definition. It was weird, but a nice 25 miles!
  9. I also got to ride a tandem bike for the first time ever when my friend Dan finally visited from Maine! We tailgated the NJ Marathon on his porch, cheering on runners, then went to the beach, had the best ice cream ever, and had a really awesome day. He's in a children's band with his brother, and honestly, they kinda rule. I'm planning on visiting Maine in June, if he can put up with me.
  10. Rev3 Half Ironman in Connecticut is coming up the first weekend in June and I'm starting to freak out a bit, but in a good excited way.
  11. I had a 5200 meter swim yesterday. Holy hell.
  12. My coach is planning a training camp in Lake Placid in June- I can't wait!
  13. I'm going to a women's track clinic this weekend at the Kissena Track in Queens, and I'm really stoked about it- Matt and Charlie have wanted to get me to the track so I'm planning on surprising them with it.
  14. Hopefully I won't kill myself doing it.
Honestly, I'm hoping in the next week or so, now that the craziness of the semester is over, I'll be posting more and generally feeling good about training. Things have been kind of rough lately, just hit a mental hurdle, but I think I'm starting to turn it around. Summer vacation, whoot!
