Hometown: Albuquerque, NM
I split my time between working in the emergency room and in a surgery center as a Registered Nurse.
I love being a nurse, but it does come with some crazy hours and constant schedule changes. The key to my balance is food, sleep, and motivation. With my schedule, meal prep is a must, sticking to a plan is futile and when I get downtime, I don’t mess around…I’m talking books, baths, snuggle time with my hubby and dog Otis and relax time.
I’ve got the goals, but more importantly, I need a plan to help me reach my athletic goals. For me, I always have to be honest and upfront with my coaches and myself. We’ve already made plenty of adjustments this year, but what I love most about my coaches is their honesty and their never give-up-on-me mentality.
Other tips: 1) MEAL PREP 2) MAKE A SCHEDULE 3) NEVER NEGLECT SLEEP.
I like to look at my workweek along with my training plan, and I visualize how I want the week to go. I write down what needs to happen and when (ex. when I need to be at the pool, when I need to go to bed, what I will be eating etc).
1) BALANCE, BALANCE, BALANCE
2) RUN happy
3) Get a great coach!!!
