Tomorrow turns the page to week FOUR of my off-season. The past three weeks were just super easy and super light. Even though I haven't taken a good look at all my workouts; this week my coach is most likely gonna give me some workouts that challenge me. I don't know for sure if I'm FULLY recovered yet but we'll see this week. I have one rest day, two swim days, two bike days, and two run days. I know the volume is still a little on the light side but I think there might be a little more intensity than there has been. I'm hoping for some challenges in my training this week; just to keep me going and feeling good about the NOTHING that I have coming up for a while.

I swam (and survived) the 1 to 2 foot swells of Lake Erie, cycled through the rough(ish) roads of downtown Cleveland, ran a solid run through Edgewater Park, and arrived at the Red Carpet Finish Line full of smiles with my confidence and head held up high.

So happy and still somewhat on Clould 9 still. I'll also post pictures as I share my Nationals experience. But in the meantime; National Age Group Championship Finisher in the House!
It's been exactly ONE WEEK since my 2018 Triathlon Season came to an end. About two weeks after Age Group Nationals in Cleveland Ohio; I completed the Kinetic Multisports North East Triathlon in North East Maryland. It was ALWAYS one of those bucket list triathlon for me that I wanted to check out. Since my friends Faith and David live about 15 minutes from North East; I had a good reason to go do it. Don't let that smile coming from the left third place age group podium fool you; because oh boy North East Sprint Triathlon, You. Were. Something. Else. I took 3rd out of 3 in the 30-34 female age group (my last triathlon in that age group), top 1/3 of women overall, and top 1/2 of overall between men and women. I really can't complain; but I did. Well ok; it was more like a beat myself up session rather than a complaining session. If anything this picture says it all. I'm the one who's back is to the camera in the mostly black but has some magenta to it tri ki…
