College athlete problems:
Wanting to dress cute because the weather has finally turned beautiful, but knowing it would be worthless because you have some sort of workout in a few hours.
WOOT! Training camp part 1
This is awesome! Not only is everyone absolutely insane, I got to learn some neat stuff. Things I can do now: Fly mounts Fly dismounts -Ok, I am still a bit terrified of them. Getting my shoes figured out with them is a bit interesting, but I’m going to get it!- How to set up my transition for an IT race Lots of stuff for IT races. Not that I probably will do an IT race in the near...
2012 Triathlon Training Camp!
YAY! It starts this afternoon after swim practice! It’s sponsored by USAT and it’s for the Collegiate Nationals that will be held this year! I wonder who all is going! Are any of them on Tumblr, too?
I have decided that when I can do a pull up I'm...
I don’t know how I will, but I’ll find a way. But for now I need to work on getting to do a pull up… How do I do that? D:
So there are two triathlons in two days in about...
I want to, but I don’t want to burn out on Saturday and screw up the race Sunday. I can’t remember how I felt the day after my last race.
I think my coach is trying to kill me!
Swim today was 4200 yds, and 2100 of it was sprinting. These were longer sprints. 200s, 300s, and 500s! I guess spring break means its time to bust out the big girl workouts. X-X
I always get a sick sort of smugness when I'm...
Typically she’s in a sorority shirt, walking 4mph at a 30% incline and browsing through a magazine. She’ll be there for an hour and then she’ll go party and drink more beer in three hours than she’ll drink water in a day (Not stereotyping here, I listen to her talking to her sorority sister on the treadmill on the other side). She’ll also complain about how hard it is...
THERE IS A TINKER BELL HALF MARATHON
I AM SO DOING THIS NEXT YEAR OH MY GOD! I LOVE TINKER BELL!
passion-is-everything PIZZA. pizza is the nectar of the gods actually, the word “ambrosia” is just a fancy way of saying pizza. this i am convinced of. hahahahaha, no i completely understand. my top college choice was the naval academy and i was so stubborn about going there i didn’t even want to look at civilian schools but then i thought okay if i get rejected (which i...
passion-is-everything: hahahahaha, okay you make a very good point, swimmers are usually horrible runners. and yes, running does hurt, but it’s a good kind of hurt. :D so how did you go from swimming to triathlons? YOU ARE AN ATHLETE WHO DOESN’T LIKE PASTA? …i don’t even know what to say to that… pasta is the staple of my diet. i mean, i just can’t imagine...
passion-is-everything: um okay ms triathlon, you’re one to talk. i mean a ragnar is all running. sure you run 3 legs and don’t get a lot of sleep in between but i mean still it’s just running, you do the whole swimming and trying not to drown from exhaustion and biking and then running. THAT is amazing. also i just read this and thought of you, hahahaha ...
passion-is-everything: hahaha, last week i ran the ragnar del sol and my longest consecutive run was 10 miles and i remember hitting the wall and thinking “oh my god this fucking hurts like this really fucking hurts and what mile am i on i don’t even know god i hate everything i hate running i wonder if i throw myself in front of a car if i’ll die instantly or if it’ll...
pinnygiggsofreason asked: it's called the whiskey row marathon and it's in prescott, az and I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I'M DOING THIS. i wanted to sign up for a marathon and i thought "hey this one is close by" and i didn't even look at the course map or anything, i was just like "okay i'll do it" and i swear this is the dumbest thing i have ever decided to do. it's on may 5th,...
pinnygiggsofreason asked: I haven't even done a marathon yet! I'm training for one right now though... it's in two months and I think it might literally kill me. No, listen, really just listen. It's supposed to be one of the hardest marathons in the United States because in the first 7 miles you go from 5200 ft to 7000 ft then you go back down to 5000 when you hit the 13 mile turn-around AND THEN YOU DO...
All these rankings are in the women’s division! Swim: 11th overall T1: 48th (I fell… it was baaaaaaddd… and I had a really muddy butt for the rest of the race….. x-x) Bike: 13th overall T2: 37th overall Run: 29th overall >w< Man I need to work on my transitions…….
pinnygiggsofreason asked: YOU ARE SO AMAZING! Truly an inspiration to me! I'm hoping to do a triathlon one day! :) Really though, congratulations and great job!!! Now take a week off and rest up! Haha

Triathlon this morning! UGA Early Bird!
Anyone else racing it? Anyone?
What is your pre ride warm up routine?
fixedfashion: Calf raises? Ankel rotations? Deep stretches? Lunges? Squats? Please share, others can benefit and get those sexy buff legs we all want. Uh… Riding out to the park where the group starts the ride?
picsonthewall started following you YAY! No te conozco, pero te quiero!
I don't get to ride my bike today.
-sobs in a corner- I finished my test too late. Now the sun’s going down, there’s a storm front moving in, and the traffic is already picking up as people start a mass exodus from campus for the weekend. Last time I went out in mild traffic, not even heavy traffic, I had people revving engines, speeding by, honking, and generally playing the ‘Scare the Cyclist!’ game...
I get to ride my bike today!
I’m so excited. This will be my first afternoon ride in a long time because finally there is enough daylight. My ride Tuesday was rained out. So after my chem exam I’m going out for an easy 30 miles! Yay!
