A Great b-day!

My birthday was great! Thursday morning I went to swim practice at 5:30am and was greated by lots of Happy Birthday wishes and of course a couple sarcastic remarks that I am "so young" and "we are all old enough to be your parents!" from the other triathletes in the water. The main set was for ME and I think the other swimmers were a little bothered that it was my b-day set. 4 x 600's for non-Ironman triathletes is tough...but I Loved it! Went for a 50 minute run and I enjoyed being the BIG 25! I spent a couple hours at Iron Girl helping out Judy with Iron Girl Atlanta articles and I received a wonderful gift from Judy-Lots of Sports bars and the cutest b-day card! I just love Judy! I am SO looking forward to racing at the Iron Girl Atlanta Triathlon in a couple weeks.
The rest of the day was a little stressful as I continued to work on my presentation for Vegas. I leave next sunday and I feel like I still have lots of preparation to do. The power point is finis…

I Age up on May 31st, 2007!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Yep-it's my b-day. I can rent a car, my insurance drops and I age up!!! 25-29 age group here I come!!!
This week has been crazy. I'm finishing my power point presentation for my Vegas conference for the International Society of Sports Nutrition. I will be speaking about sports nutrition for enduranec athletes, primarily Ironman athletes (very appropriate!). I've learned a lot by doing months of research on Pub Med. There are a lot of great studies out there and being the science nerd that I am, I'm really excited to apply some new nutrition strategies to my Kona training.
Tuesday's run workout (after swim) was ridiculously hard! 16 x 2:00 at 10K pace (HR around 170!) with 30 recovery. It was really really really hard! I spun my legs for a 2 hour ride on tues afternoon and felt a lot better. Taught spin class today and swam a mile for recovery and attempted the Gearlink ride this afternoon. Not so much did I even try to make the loops after warm-up. Oh well, at least …

Memorial Weekend

What fun today! My friend Hunter, his girlfriend, his sister, Karel and I had an awesome day on the boat in clearwater beach. I attempted water skiing, but I should probably stick with triathlons. At least I tried! Lots of sun today to wear me out! It was a great day.
Karel rode with me today...yep, you heard it right. He is still really sore, with an awful bruise on his arm, but atleast he is on his bike. And as if I thought I would be able to keep up with him since he has been off the bike for 17 days...yeah right! He kicked my butt and he was only spinning his legs. We both took it easy today for a nice 30 mile spin. He has an amazing positive outlook on life and he is such an amazing athlete. Yesterday was great as I joined the Gearlink guys for a 16 mile time trial in Tarpon. It was a lot of fun and great to see the guys on their road bikes with aerobars! My seduza finally fit in! Felt strong but didn't push too hard. Still on recovery mode from the Half Ironman last weekend…
