Tidbit Tuesday

Well I officially made it through the holidays… I guess I don’t know if New Years counts as “The Holidays”?! But I am officially off off-season, back in full swing of Ironman training (Ironman Chattanooga and Victoria 70.3 being my “A-races” for 2017), about to start my 2017 running goal of 1000 miles and therefore “off-holiday”!

Got in my trainer ride yesterday on my last “free trial” day with Zwift and definitely will be going the subscription route. It is an entertaining way to take the dullness out of the trainer rides and I like seeing the watt goals they set up! Fun.

Got my pool swim in this afternoon after work but before the motherly-wifely duties needed my attention. #winning

Made this scrumptious Stir-Fry and Shrimp for dinner with some Teriyaki Chicken and Rice sides for the fam.

I also started my new job and am learning the rules and regs for a totally different industry! So it’s been a good week so far!

Change of Plans!! Chattanooga here I come!

Well after some thought, some conversation with my main sponsors, and some talking with my husband, I have decided that Ironman Arizona is not my Ironman this year. Instead I will be taking on Ironman Chattanooga!!

We booked our hotel reservations tonight. I will re-plan my training schedule as well. I am excited!!! 🙂 Time to kick this training into full swing!

And I decided to add this to my 2017 goals, mostly since I should be logging these kind of miles anyways with the HIM and IM training, and I love a good support group!

Sunday Prep

This week may be a little crazy…

My stepsons are here through midday Christmas Eve.

We are having both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my house.

AND I start a new job!!!! More to come about that!!!

So I will attempt to be flexible and cut myself a tiny bit of slack if I need it this week.

Maybe…..

Here is this week’s training schedule:
