    Giveaway – Energize your Workouts–and Life– With Plexus Slim!

    Problem: I gained 15 lbs, my energy went to zero and I was eating like I was training for an Ironman minus all of the training. After our half-ironman last September, I fell off the workout wagon. Davey and I had just spend 2-5 hours a day …

    Training For a Triathlon Race on Short Notice – Part 1

    Almost exactly three weeks ago, Jess called out to me from across the living room and said, “Hey, do you want to do a triathlon on our anniversary!?” My initial reaction was, “Well, I haven’t been training.” Jess: “It’s a sprint triathlon with a 750 …

    Our Traincation

      Davey and I were in a bit of a triathlon slump at the beginning of the month. With our first race of the season over 2 months away, we lacked the motivation to get out there and swim, bike and run… especially in this …

    Have You Sprinted Lately? It Ain’t Easy.

    Sprint workouts are tough, we all know that. Sure, they’re not usually as long as other workouts, but you’re red-lining the whole time. Heart pounding, heavy breathing, maxing it out — to the point of dizziness, for sure — and maybe a bit of puking …

    Triathlon Training Tips for Nurses

    Happy Nurses Week! For nurses, a long 3-day stretch of back-to-back 12-hour shifts is like an endurance event in and of itself. And if you had to do CPR during yesterday’s shift, that means you’re coming to work sore in places you didn’t even know could get …

    Is Your Training Data Slowing You Down?

    Right now, I am in the thick of training for a half-marathon. Since Davey isn’t running this race, I get to borrow his Garmin for my training. I’m not always happy with the pace that the Garmin tells me I’m running at. Sometimes I think …

    My #OLW (One Little Word)

    It’s January 6th and I’m nowhere close to achieving any of my triathlon goals for 2015. It’s crazy how I tend to make lots of inspiring goals and motivating intentions for the year only to be discouraged after a mere few days because I’m not making as much progress …

    Cold Weather Cycling Gear

    Confession: Davey and I are fair weather cyclists. We like the wind in our face, but only if it’s a warm wind. We both hate being cold. During the winter months, you can find us continuing our triathlon training by pedaling away on our indoor …

    Feeling Off In The Off-Season

    Augusta 70.3 was the biggest, longest, most involved race that we’ve ever done. We spend countless hours swimming, biking and running; and even more hours driving to the pool, to the lake, to our favorite bike route and  to the running trails– all of which …

    Kona, A Cool Triathlon Podcast, Your Worst Triathlon Nightmare and MORE!

    Who watched Ironman Kona on Saturday? I am not a sports fan at allllll– I could care less about March Madness or the Superbowl. I choose my NCAA basketball brackets based on the team’s colors, and I just realized that the Nashville Predators were a hockey …
