Spending a week at the beach after my half iron...
Same time as my last one, but my run and bike were faster. The swim was much slower #i hate ocean swims Anyway, currently having issues because I love my triathlon/cycling tan lines, but at the same time I’m crazy self conscious about them, and running around in a bikini is not my cup of tea. :/ Race report to come. Lolz. I have stories about this one.
Vegetarian day one So far loving it. :) We’ll see how it goes from here ^_^ I’ve wanted to go vegetarian for a while, but I just kept putting it off.
Already sick of being home
I don’t know how these people function. Yesterday at dinner my madre proudly remarked that she only had two apples, a granola bar, and a protein shake all day. But then she was a bad girl and got a brownie. So then she went and ran four miles to try to burn it off. Her dinner was also a tiny portion. She then congratulated my little sister on losing weight and her diet- she’s a...
Dontstoptriing and I spent a good little while on...
It was great bonding time We also don’t want this race to happen tomorrow. It won’t be pretty. #WetandCold
I officially start my nutrition minor in the fall
So excited. One of the classes is even Nutrition for Athletic Performance.
Thank god. There’s a spin class in five min. I need this.
Guy I confessed to just asked my little sister out on a date. Don’t know if I can really handle that right now I need a run. Really bad. I just need to sweat everything out.

dirkmshaw: If you were looking for ways to somehow justify your beer consumption dont read this. And my teammates mock me for not drinking for a week before most races, and up to two months before big important events. :P

Ugh. My stomach has been bothering me for the past month. Ever since spring break. It’s so unpleasant, and I’ve been avoiding working out outdoors because I don’t want to get sick far from home. Thankfully, I have the option to train indoors. I’m starting to wonder if it is related to diet; I know I’ve been eating crap the entire time I’ve been back. Also, my...
I love writing workout plans for friends. :]
It is so much fun. I’m starting to think that if this med school thing doesn’t pan out I need to be a personal trainer/nutritionist/physical therapist. I still want to be a sports surgeon, but that could be oodles of fun, too.
183 days until the big race
Cyclist not biker That is all
I'm starting to have this problem where when...
My coach is doing the same full I am
I am unsure how to feel about this.
me: omg that workout was so ridiculous i'm going straight to the shower, i'm disgusting
twenty minutes later: still in workout clothes + tennis shoes, sitting on tumblr
Yes body, I hear you.
thedesiretowin: I still hear you. I know it hurts. Yes, I did hear you the last ten times. Yes, I am ignoring you. I know; quitting would be easier. You know what, body? Quit your bitching and MOVE! Sincerely, The Desire to Win
I love zooming around on my bike. Nothing better than tucking and pushing it. The feel of the wind. The scenery slipping by. The sensation in my muscles of every motion. It’s just fantastic.
Sooooooo.... I may do a half iron a week after...
Probably a bad idea. But a friend invited me to go do it with him. I’d get to stay a week at the beach and chill, three days before, and three days after the race How much of a bad idea is this?
Wear your running shirts tomorrow for Boston
runningmyownrace: steveinaspeedo: Heard a great idea from local coach Gary Westlund: tomorrow I’m wearing a running shirt to work to “tell the rest of our world of running friends we’ll not stop running. We’ll run more, run farther, and volunteer more often at running events.” Well said Gary. My heart and prayers go out to everyone in Boston. Great idea. Thanks, Steve. I will never qualify...
Oh my god.
friendlyneighborhoodpixie: There were explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Estimated a few dozen people injured, no deaths reported yet. Some people are missing limbs. I’ve been told not to look at any pictures because they are very graphic, so I won’t. My mom knows some people that were there and has yet to hear back from them regarding their well-being. This is really...
Blarg So slow. Sprint in an hour. Not happy. The swim was ok, but that was about it. Even that was slow, because I had to keep stopping because I was swimming on top of people. My stomach was killing me the entire race. Actually got sick a little before the swim. It was awful. I just wanted to curl up in a little ball. Anyway. Too lazy to look up splits. I took 1st place Athena Signed up...
Killer headache. Hope it goes away before tomorrow’s race.
When I'm at the expo with my significant other and...
I have to write an essay on the rhetorical appeals...
Hangover + workout = unhappy
wastedhoursbeforeweknew asked: how often do you do triathalons? and what has been your best time?
dontstoptriing: Today I went to my not-usual swim time because the fancy pool at the aquatic center is set to long course for the first time in forever and then I had to swim in the 25 yd warm soggy pool because there’s a swim meet tomorrow in the beautiful pool. Why is the soggy crappy pool warm? It’s filled with tears of my disappointment. I swam in the long pool todaaaaayyyy!
I love how people ask me for nutrition and...
Siiiigh I’m not trying to lead you astray, honestly.
I'm watching TV for once, and I keep balancing in...
I’m having so much fun with this
