Tri Training weeks 7 and 8

Happy long weekend and happy friday! I’ve been taking vacation for the last week and a half and studying for my personal trainer exam. I passed my exam!!!!!! I am a certified personal trainer!  (A more detailed post on that later). I was in MN for a rainy weekend with friends and family, and this week I’ve been going back between tri training, studying, and errands.

Open Water Swimming

Happy Friday, coming at you from rainy Minnesota. Don’t worry, I brought my Eddie Bauer purple rain coat with me. Purple rain anyone? Have you ever done any open water swimming?

Triathlon Training weeks 5 and 6

Another work week come and gone. There has been a lot of rain in Denver this week, and I’ve been busy at work. I’m ready for the weekend. I don’t have a lot of plans, a couple triathlon work outs, including an OPEN WATER SWIM, and a graduation party for my friends! Triathlon training has been going well these last two weeks. The program I’m using is a mesocycle, so three weeks of increasing distances and one recovery week. This week was a recovery week, and I really enjoyed it.

Investing in a Bike

Have I told you guys how much I love my bike? It’s great for a short commute to work, and it stuck with me through a Sprint Triathlon. Let me tell you, I’d been considering investing in a bike for years. The last bike I got for myself was when I was about 8, it was purple and wrapped by my new foosball table on Christmas morning. #Tomboylife. In college, I used a bike that was my dad’s and from a garage sale. It got me from point A to point B around campus. But I think it was older than me…

ClassPass review

For the first year since college, I am not going to the Kentucky Derby. My friend group went four years in a row, but this year we decided not to do it. I’m sad that I will not be going to the Derby, but excited to spend my time and money on other trips in 2017. More importantly, it’s been awhile since I saw our big college group. I miss them. Throwback to Derby 2015–
