Garmin Frustrations

I haven’t been able to upload my fitness activities from my Garmin 910XT in several months. My last activity that made it through wasn’t even a proper run, it was my timer event for when my brother was running a half marathon, so that I would be ready and waiting for Photo opportunities when he […]

Ironman 70.3

I have finally finished my mini documentary on my training and entry into an Ironman 70.3 race.

2 years in the making, this is the most time consuming, yet rewarding thing I have probably done in life so far. Training was long, hard, and exhausting… but I am glad to have finished the race […]

Nothing left to do but race

Ironman 70.3 is only a few days away and there is no more training left to do. My body can’t possibly get any more prepared for this years “A” race than it is right now. All I have left to do is figure out the logistics of race day, mentally prep, and get lots of […]

Bridge too far

I went out for an early morning run in the fog the other day. Here’s a fun little video I made because i know my brother loves bridges.

Getting back into the groove

Now that summer weather has finally shown up, I am finding it increasingly difficult to stay on top of my training. Changes at work have left me feeling drained and I don’t seem to have the focus I need to stay where I want in terms of training volume. Ironman 70.3 is at the end […]

Destroyed my legs

I just got back from my first long bike ride with my brother, and he made me feel like such a noob. My legs are completely depleted now. 42 km in 88 minutes for an average of 28.8 kph is not terrible for a first big ride of the season. The huge hill near the […]

Mile Stone…in the water

literally. I swam over a mile non-stop this morning. I needed the confidence boost. The pool was almost empty so I thought it would be a good day to test my total endurance. 2000 meters in 40:07 = 2:00/100 meter pace. I am really happy with my performance. I definitely felt sluggish during the second […]

Long week of training

Well that was one long exhausting week of training. I feel so drained after 7 days of fitness. Finished off the week with a brick session this morning with my older brother. 2 hours total which started with a 30 km ride followed by an 8.7 km run. We were definitely not setting any records […]

Back-ordered winter?

Wow what a blizzard this morning. Its not feeling like spring anymore. Its hard to imagine my first triathlon which is only 6 days away when you have blowing snow like this.

On the plus side, I had a great swim this morning moving my average pace down to 1:52 / 100 meters. Although I […]

GET back in the pool!

I feel like I have been cheating on my swims lately. The pool was running reduced hous over Easter so I have only had 1 swim in the last 10 days.

This morning was back at it and I felt slow, even though my times say other wise. I managed to pull off 2000 meters […]
