    Need to make some changes 5 mi 00:43 08:35 pace

    Did my usual hilly route this a.m. Slept really bad so it was rough going the whole way, and very humid and hot. I will just go ahead and say that I've been going through some tough personal i... read more

      Some people say that running/training is a stress relief for them but personally I've found that it's not true. Personal problems have always caused my training to suffer as well. But, hang in there, it'll get better.

    Hilly ride with construction :( 14 mi 01:05 12.9mph pace

    Decided on my extra hilly route today, big mistake! Realized too late there was construction going on, lots of junk in the road on the way up the hill, so had to go slow, and had to dodge gravel tr... read more

    Hot and tired! 6.2 mi 00:56 09:01 pace

    After my swim I ran in the lovely 90 degree weather.Took it nice and slow, no reason to kill myself in this heat.

  4. swim
    Crown Park outdoor pool 1800 yd 00:45 44:00 pace

    This was an ass kicker! Really windy so the water was choppy, plus lots of people in there, which essentially made for an open water swim experience, sans yuckiness and a wetsuit. Pace was a lot sl... read more

    Hangover run 6.2 mi 01:00 09:40 pace

    Oh man...this was rough. Too much wine tasting yesterday and not enough food or sleep. Had to walk several times and it was already 80 degrees. Could only manage 6. Felt better afterward, though.

    Super busy day today with work and heading out of town, so only had 30 minutes for a swim. Swam easy for 800, did kick drills and then a few sprints. Arms are tired from the beating I got last nigh... read more

    It's a good sign you got a great workout when holding a bottle of water and pie in line at the grocery store feels like an effort. :) Karen really worked me hard since I haven't trained w... read more

    I think I can... 14 mi 00:56 15.0mph pace

    Had to talk myself into riding in the wind and what looked to be potential downpours today. Add in the hills and I almost said screw it and went back to bed. But, before I could talk myself out of ... read more

      Better to have done it. Makes you feel tough anyway :) Plus, it didn't rain and looks like it's going to get better all day!

      Yup! I was actually the only cyclist out except a local meth head riding on the sidewalk and talking to himself. Glad I was riding and not running!

      Nice work Danielle. The best thing to do is just get out there and do it. It gets better and better the more miles you put in. Those trucks are the worst, though. Yep.

    injured Meh 5.7 mi 00:48 08:25 pace

    Apparently, I pulled an inner thigh muscle at Ragnar this past weekend and although it didn't hurt at the time, it definitely is now. My left arch and top of foot is also giving me problems, t... read more

    Spin after swim 17 mi 01:00 17.0mph pace

    Decided to go to spin class after swimming. Legs are still fatigued, so that was tough.

    Felt good to work these areas, I have been slacking lately!

    Ragnar recovery run 4.06 mi 00:37 09:06 pace

    Very, very slow recovery run. My legs have not bounced back from the relay this weekend, nor have I caught up on sleep. Oh well,at least I got everything stretched out!

    great Ran an extra leg for a teammate 2.4 mi 00:20 08:17 pace

    This extra Ragnar leg was brought to you by a grande latte, flatbread sandwich, and yougert, lol! Great training for the half IM.

    great Last leg of Ragnar! 2.4 mi 00:18 07:27 pace

    Really pushed on this last leg. Only 6 hours of sleep total in the past two nights, but it was pretty fun to run this one.

    2nd leg Ragnar 6.7 mi 00:53 07:51 pace

    This was a really pretty leg but I struggled due to lack of running lately and because of the cow pastures. A girl passed me at mile one and started obnoxiously celebrating with her van mates, &quo... read more

    Oh my gosh, this was tough. I know it's only 13.5 miles but so hilly, and my legs are just fatigued and still adjusting to cycling. Glad I got out, though. Major fear of cycling in traffic, es... read more
