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.
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…
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…
HELLO from the Hamptons!

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…
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.

Propel’s challenge to us for this month was to work out with a buddy—doing their workout.
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…
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
