What do ya know Wednesday : Infinit Nutrition

So I am totally digging Infinit Nutrition! I am so super happy that I switched to this nutrition when I did. I have never felt that my nutrition has been more on point than it is right now!!!


First up, I love the Custom Blend. You go through and determine what your individual needs are. Such as, are you a heavy sweater? Do you want caffeine? How do you like your carb ratio? I seriously love that you dial it all in for your personal needs. Then you pick the flavor and NAME IT! Love.


Then, I love the MUD. It’s like having the most delicious, cold, coffee and protein shake all in one! It has replaced my morning coffee (at least most of the time) and I LOVE it!!!


And, I recently started using the :GO FAR which is designed for 4 hour plus workouts and doesn’t taste bad after sitting in the sun that long or longer. As well as the :JET FUEL which contains a higher percentage of INFINIT Glucose for energy and faster absorbtion along with 125 mg of caffeine, so you know, I can kick ass.

Tidbit Tuesday: CDA Athlete Guide


I cannot even tell you how many times I have read this… Too many.


Or done the math on the absolute longest I can take on the course and still walk away with that Finisher’s Medal.


Or wondered who in the hell decided that you had to get out of the water between lap and lap two of the swim… If you have followed my blog long and had the privilege of seeing my post 1.2mile swim pics, just wait, that 2.4 mile swim pic is going to be twice as awful…


Then I slightly freak out over 112 miles of crazy hills that make up the CDA Ironman course.



Then think to myself, like a marathon isn’t hard enough, why not tack those 26.2 miles onto the end of the swim and bike…


Then find comfort in the idea that crawling is just fine… 😦



Sunday Prep

Super challenging ride today! 80 miles, starting in the freezing cold (44 degrees) and ending in the heat of the day (88 degrees). Giant hills (4,448 elevation gain). Mean bike chasing, leg eating dogs. Beautiful scenery. Best training partner in the world.


The realness of the Ironman being 4 weeks away is really starting to sink in. And to be perfectly honest, I could not be more terrified. Next weekends training schedule.

But hell, it’s go time. Too late to freak out or back out now.



Sunday Funday

Lots of great training this weekend.


Long toasty run along the levee Saturday after our five hour ride the previous day.

Then my stepson’s 15th birthday party.


And today, the best Open Water Swim I’ve had to date.



Followed by a gas station stop in my bathing suit.


Then followed by a nice relaxing cup of coffee by the fire.


Had a great time at the pool with the kiddos this afternoon.

It’s been a somewhat difficult weekend mentally for me. Some heavy thinking about what’s to come in my triathlon world. It’s not been easy, that’s for sure.


Five weeks to go until the CDA Ironman. This is the plan for the week:

Tidbit Tuesday

This week I’ve been thinking a lot about the special needs bags for the IM. I stole 9 million posts online about what other Ironmen athletes pack in their bags and I think I’m narrowing it down.

(Special needs bags are available in addition to your usual transition bags but are for half way through the bike portion so at mile 56 and half way through the run portion so at mile 13.1. These bags are supposed to help you survive the 17 hour race and carry you through the 140.6 miles.)

The bags total five, your morning gear bag (what you wear/need in the morning but don’t want to toss), your bike bag (whatever you plan to change out of your wetsuit and in to your biking gear), your run bag (again, to change out of your biking gear and into your running gear), and the two above mentioned special needs bags.

This is super stressing me out! All these bags, 17 hours, 140.6 miles!!!! Ekkkkkk!!
