There is only one way I can do anything and that is through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I would not be able to train, race, or compete in anything that I do in life with out Him on my side and watching over me.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Living in Colorado, every weekend in the winter is committed to ski lessons for the kids. So, before we head up to the hill, I eeked in a 45 minute run with 30 min weight room sesh. 45 minutes was in HR Z1 and it’s always harder than I would think. I want to run my ass off at my normal pace, but hear the words of my coach in ring in my head. Keeping it in Z1 and keeping that control will make me faster in the long run. 🏃🏽♀️Did I mention the sun was uber bright? And did I mention this is the best I’ve felt since recovering from THE effing FLU?! Happy Saturday!! ☀️☀️
Sunday setup. May be riding solo, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a good brew and muffin at the cafe.
Highlights of the ride: likely PB up the 1/20 assisted by a convenient draft behind an Elwood Canal Peloton guy, no arm warmers the whole ride, good coffee at the Basin, waving at a 2 year old kid who yelled “hello riders” out the window at a red light
Lowlights: fairly strong winds that also sent plenty of sticks and leaves onto the road which made for some sketchy moments while descending, a #garminfail that meant I lost the first 61km of my ride (so no confirmed PB 😢)
Yo, I had tacos AND a veggie burger AND chocolate chip pancakes all in one day and have 0 food regrets. Oh, annnnd I didn't feel the need to "work it all off". Some might not get what the big deal is here. So I ate a bunch of delicious food today? Congrats? Yeah, I am congratulating myself. Years ago, I would over analyze every single bite of every meal, feel guilty about it for dayyys after I'd eaten it, and spend more time figuring out how to burn the calories I was eating than enjoy them. It's not like one day I was magically cured; like anything that's worth while, it's taken effort and practice, and failure and starting over, but it is soooo worth it. Because you are worth it. If you're struggling with your relationship with food right now, it's ok. It does get better. Sooo much better. Just keep going🤘🏼. .
First hill ride, 30km of hills straight after night shift 👊🏻 getting shit done 😎 training for three dams has commenced 💁🏻💁🏻💁🏻💁🏻 strangely enough I think I liked the pain, but I think that's because I had definitely earned my coffee. 🙈
The best Christmas gift was winning the giveaway from @triandrungirl and @ugo_apparel 💚 Thanks Heather and Becca!
These @altrarunning Escalante’s are what I have been dreaming of. I have been running in Altra’s for 3 years and it has been the best decision ever for me. Love the zero drop and the foot shape toe box. Looking forward to many miles on these bad boys!
What can I say this Radiant Rose Jersey from uGo Apparel I am in love with. Love the fabric and it is so comfy! Love that it is longer in the back too. We will be rocking many rides together 😍
Getting lots of use out of the @yogitriathlete cookbook. Tonight was Jackfruit tacos with a chipotle sauce. These endurance athletes know how to make a cookbook. 20 min total prep and cook! #plantpower#triathlontraining

In episode 21 of The Find Your Awesome Podcast, @amberdferreira says, “we train so we can get used to the pain and then accept it on race day.”
I was thinking about this during my run today and I realized there’s another piece to it: sometimes we just aren’t that into the pain. It’s not that we’re too tired to push ourselves further; it’s that we’re unwilling to welcome the pain.
This goes beyond sport. When we’re feeling ungrounded, we’re less interested in stretching outside our comfort zones.
What do you do about it? That, my friends, is up to you. You always have a choice.

Too bad today wasn’t a true out and back otherwise we would have been #rockwall#rockstars on the #bike today. Wind gusting to 30 mph and sustained at 21mph makes for a great mind ride. Had to push 335 watts on the flats to do 16mph in the aero position at times. Was a beauty though. Thanks @rockwallcycling for getting my bike fixed and me better dialed in - the shoulder thanks you. And thanks @trijim3 for being crazy enough to go with me.
