Season Goal- 11 weeks!

While my life and training has taken a 360, new goals had to be made. I am still swimming, biking and running but not like I was before of course. I am only working out 45- 1 hour per day, taking 1 day off a week.

I have made it a goal to accumulate 26.2 miles of running in races this summer so that I can receive my medal!!

Fleet Feet Syracuse, the Syracuse New Times, and Saucony, once again join the Parks Department to bring together established road races, based in the City of Syracuse, into this unique series called Syrathon. Syrathon races showcase Syracuse's terrific Parks system. Whether you are just beginning, or are a seasoned runner, the Series is designed to encourage healthful physical activity year-round, while promoting the sights and sounds of city life!

There are 8 Races in the series and so far I have done 2 of them. Tipp Hill 4 miler and Mountain Goat 10 miler!! 12.2 miles to go!!
I am feeling great at 11 weeks. I dont remember feeling this good in my last pregnancy. Im hardly even showing which makes me even more excited!! Although my pants are getting tighter and my chest is getting bigger, I know it will all be worth it in the end!!!

I have been a little lazy in the posting category lately, or maybe its called life has taken over. I did do the Mountain Goat run a few weeks ago and just stayed at a steady pace coming in around 1:45 for the 10 miles. Trying to keep your heartrate low for 10 hilly miles proved challenging.

The reason I have to keep my heartrate so low is because my honey and I wound up with a big surprise about a month ago! We are having a baby!

I am now 10 weeks and still enjoying swimming, biking and running but in my own way. I had to defer all my races until next summer but I am ok with this now!

So the focus on this blog for the time being is being accountable for working out most days of the week while being pregnant, staying healthy in the eating department when my ice cream cravings aren't there and just having fun while doing it!

Today I still managed 3 miles in the heat at 10 min miles, keeping my heartrate around 140. So nice to see I can still do this!

I have been trying to swim at least 2 days per week, bike 3, run 3 and if not, the precor comes into play when I am not having a good run day. Keeping active during this pregnancy is really important to me as my first one I did nothing!!

My daughter had her first gymnastics meet today. She was too cute! She was so nervous and anxious she forgot to wait until the judges called her name and lost some points for not waiting. All in all she managed all around 10th place which I am so proud of her. She just started a year ago and was moved up to the elite team 2 months ago so this has definately made her see what competition is like!

I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful Sunday Afternoon!! happy Training!

Life is about change. Sometimes it's painful, sometimes it's beautiful, but most of the time, it's both..

Alot of changes are coming up in the life of this triathlete!! But, for now, getting ready to Run the Mountain Goat this weekend! I love this race and have done it for the last 5 years. Its a race that really starts the summer racing here in Central New York.

Im running it with a friend who this will be her first long race at 10 miles!! I will pace her and try to keep her on track for her goal time. She has to finish by 2hours and 20 min and she is nervous she wont do it! With me pushing her she will definately make it!!!

Happy Training!
