Oh the highs and lows of #triathlon. The good news is I finished!!!…the bad news is…I was THE last person out of the water…on/off the bike…on the run but was DETERMINED not to be the last one to finish. Saw a guy walk running and mad a goal to say in front of him. Lol. Saw another lady in the distance who I TRIED to catch but gave up on that Moments after crossing the finish line…I hear ” second place - Safari Charles, I think she just crossed the finish line.” Aka LAST place in my division but hey…I’ll take second place how ever I can get it. :-). Unofficial time: 3:55 (swim: 58:32| bike: 1:35| Run: 1:14) #gotworktodo #gothinkingtodo #70.3REALLY?!? #trilife #justgotREAL #tritraining #roadtohalfironman #ripit

Trying to “hydrate properly” but this is NOT yummy…to me. Mixed it with organic lemonade. I’ve been cramping way too frequently lately and I do NOT want to cramp up tomorrow on my training ride or during my #triathlon Sunday. #keepCalmAndHydrate

Great #brick workout last night…21 mile bike ride on my loaner bike…oh what a difference…followed by a 3 mile run. Legs felt good…was actually surprised by my pace, off the bike. Gives me hope for my #triathlon this Sunday. I ran without music…which I absolutely HATE but trying to get used to it…since NO music is allowed race day. #roadtohalfironman #36days #halfironman #runbikemom #runnermom #cycling #running

Closed the pool down last night. Got off to a late start but was determined to get my swim in…especially with this Olympic Distance Tri looming, this weekend. Whew!!  Good swim. Was tired when I started off. Didn’t think I would actually be able to hit the times of my main set because 1) I was tired and 2) I’ve never maintained that pace with such little recovery time but nailed all but one of them. 8x100’s…well, technically I stayed within my time (3:15) but wasn’t able to maintain 2:45 as instructed (2:27, 2:30, 2:29, 2:36, 2:36, 2:47,2:45, 2:39) - 2 x 200’s @ 6:45 (4:44, 5:00). Workout also included 900 (including 200 kicks) warm up & 100 cool down. Total workout: 2200m #roadtohalfironman #swimming #swimtime #trilife #trimom #tritraining #triathlon #triathlete

2100 meter swim…DONE…with my favorite girls!  1900m swim + 200m kicks (grr). Cool down was SUPPOSED to be 300m backstroke. Ha!  Suffered though 100m and flipped back over to free style…that was too much work for a cool down lol. #trilife #tritraining #trimom #triathlete #roadtohalfironman #ironman 70.3 Augusta #swimming #pool #fitness #fitmomma  (at JCC)

I’ve been having a difficult time (disciplining myself enough) tracking my points and have found it less stressful…more lifestyle changing to simply focus on eating healthy…and watching my portions. #OneDayAtATime #enjoyingTheJourney #eatclean

Feeling better and better in the pavement. Chased one of my faster running friends this morning…didn’t quite catch her but I did improve my pace. :-)  #settingNewBaseline #running #runnermom #runchat #purplefriday #footballseasonisHERE #protectThisHouse #ravensfootball #RavenNation

Another eventful moment on my “wonderful” bike!  Chain dropped on my first hill, 5 minutes into my ride. Was tried not to get too fraustrated and just kept it moving…I’m sure I’m getting stronger by staying in the big ring (afraid to downshift and drop the chain)…probably killing my legs but we shall see. Lol Also experienced some crazy cramping…not sure what that was about…drank close to 100 oz of water today…but I didn’t have any Gatorade during the ride…but I started cramping early on so not sure if it was lack of Gatorade or not…but hey…had a great time with the hubby!  ;-) #roadtohalfironman #trilife #tritraining #cycling #bigring #ironman 70.3

1.2 mile swim this morning…5.3 mile run this evening!  Goal was 1 hr run…not worrying about pace or distance…so that’s what I did, to a degree…kinda have to focus on both when running for time, outdoors. But I felt pretty good…like I could have definitely kept running. #nikeplus #trilife #tritraining #running #runnermom
