It's coming....

It’s just around the corner and I can’t wait. The pollen has already started falling here. Everything outside is covered in yellow dust.
Spring is my favorite time of year. Everything starts coming back to life, the days get longer, the weather gets warmer, and it also means it’s time for the Simply Stu Worldwide Triathlon.

I’ll be doing the Simply Stu race again this year with my favorite training partner KJ.

We did the race last year and had a blast. We’re going a bit longer this year. 400 yard swim, 10 mile bike and 3 mile run. Last year we swam 200 yards, biked 6.5 miles and ran 1.8 miles. Training officially started today. We ran just over a mile, non-stop, and she did great. We’ll be heading to the pool tomorrow. We'll balance the tri training along with soccer practice, which begins this week as well.

Also, we’re doing something a little different along with our training for the Simply Stu tri this year. You’ll have to check in here on race day (March 29) to find out what it is.

Regular training for me is still humming along at a very “maintenance” level. I’m getting in at least 2 sessions per sport every week. That feels about right for now and I’m just gonna roll with it and add sessions as “life” allows.

Happy Training,
