A Blog about Training for my Third Ironman, dabbling into other sports and eating Paleo.
I am a Full Time Nurse Practitioner at a highly Successful Family Practice, Mother of a toddler and tween, a wife and everything in between. Follow my journey to see the craziness and dedication it takes to be an Ironman Triathlete!!!
Yesterday my daughter and I both cycled on the trainer. Yes you are probably asking how I got her little bike on a trainer but we made it happen! It was the funniest. And Yes I have Pics!!
Thats her in the Front
We had a Benefit at our indoor training facility for the Humane Society of CNY. It was actually kind of fun. We cycled to music from movies and had to guess the movies to receive a PowerBar Gel Latte Flavored. I got around 10 of them! My daughter even knew some of them. I biked for a good cause for 2 hours 45min all while watching my daughter play with the dog, watch a movie, bike. Yes it was the best training ride in a while. I even made my Zones!! I was riding on a Sweet Kurt Kinetic trainer as well. I need to invest in one of these because this trainer puts mine to shame.
We then chit chatted triathlon business, had veggie pizza and went home. I had a 45 min run on tap which went like this 15 min @9:30, 15min @9:00, 15min @ 8:47. By the end I was going a little faster! I always seem to be better at running off the bike. Its kind of interesting. I don't know how this will play out in my Ironman Marathon but Im optomistic that I will do well. Im not a fast runner yet, but I can run for long periods of time.
Im in the Middle. The only one on a Tri Bike! :)
