Welp, triathlon training continues to be humbling.

I thought this post would be about how I went to a training camp and now feel so much stronger and more confident about my abilities.

LOL.

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 5 and took the train all the way up to 145th and Riverside to meet Sam, my triathlon angel, for a tri training camp.

The plan was to swim, then bike, then run. We swam for…

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week of July 7-14

I started out numbering my training by week, but then lost a few weeks, so we’re back to dates. 

Last week, I had a work retreat and a trip out to the , so I tried to do the best I could.

Monday: rest day. I’ve been doing long rides on Sundays, so I’ve usually taken Mondays off.

Tuesday: 45 minutes in the pool

Wednesday: Was supposed to do 1:30 on the bike and 1:00 run, but we were leaving…

A Lovely Hamptons Weekend

A Lovely Hamptons Weekend

HELLO from the Hamptons!

I took today off from work, and although I love my job, I could not be happier that this morning’s view was this and not my computer screens.

So, my friend Heather that I’m out here with is a blog reader turned IRL friend. She came up to me at the Derby party this year and said she read my blog and had joined the Junior League because of me. We started chatting and…

Another Kind of Workout

Another Kind of Workout

Yesterday morning, I woke up with the sun and rode up to Central Park to get a good 1.5 hour ride in before work.

By 3pm, my coworkers and I boarded a bus to go to Crystal Springs for our company retreat. I had never been on a company retreat before, so I was very curious about what we were getting ourselves into.

Well, when you work for a fitness company… it will probably involve fitness.

After…

A Solid Brick

The thing about training for a new race distance is you’re checking off new milestones all the time.

Learning to Swim for Triathlons: Stroke

Learning to Swim for Triathlons: Stroke

When I was born, my grandpa asked my parents where I was going to learn how to swim.

“Um, I don’t know. How do we teach her how to talk, how to walk, how to become a decent person when she grows up?” was probably the answer.

And so, my kind grandfather built a pool in his backyard (which, he obviously got just a little bit of use out of, too) and I took swimming lessons there growing up. Both the…

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week 6

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week 6

Happy Tuesday! I skipped over Week 5’s training log last week because…I just didn’t feel like it. My coach told me to take a recovery week and do whatever non-tri workouts I wanted. I ended up doing a little running, swimming and biking anyway, since I sort of like all of them now, but it was nice to not have any set workouts I absolutely had to do. I also took a Peloton class, a yoga class and a
