    Open water is SO much different than swimming laps in the pools. I really don’t like swallowing lake water during tri-s, and I imagine salt water to be even worse. I hope you’re able to get in more practice in the ocean! I’m sure it’ll make a big difference on race morning.

    I think you are doing an incredible job balancing training and travel. Every time I am feeling overwhelmed I take a peak at your blog and realize I def have the time/energry to squeeze in a workout πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    We have the same swimsuit! And better yet, I flipped the computer to my husband and got him to say ‘hey – is that you? how did you get on the internet?’ hahahaha!

    My husband injured his back earlier this summer and I’ve been taking him swimming with me. Needless to say, he thinks all people in one-pieces and swimcaps look the same. πŸ™‚

    Wow girl you had a great week of training! I think the scariest part to me would be the open water swimming! Great job getting that in that plus all those other awesome workouts!!

    That is so great that you got in a group open water swim. Always a great resource to get to practice swimming in a crowd. Sounds like another great week.

    How do you not get exhausted from all of that cardio? Marathon training is bad enough for me. I could sleep 9-10 hours a night!

    100 miles?…Woah! I feel chuffed when I hit 40!
    You have been so dedicated to keep at it when the rest of your life has hit crazy busy. I would never have the confidence to jump into tris. It’s the open water swimming which would terrify me.

    Haha, I do the same thing with hair appointments and not working out. My hair never looks as good as when I leave the hair salon- gotta make it last for a day or two πŸ™‚

    Even your “slow” weeks while traveling are more impressive than any normal week I’ve had! Keep it up! πŸ™‚

    I have been an intermittent reader of your blog for a few years now. I have never commented, but feel like this is a perfect opportunity to do so. I live in Seattle and will be doing my very first triathlon at the Iron Girl event this weekend. I’m very nervous, but trying to keep a good attitude. I’m looking forward to hopefully spotting you out there on Sunday. Hope you enjoy Seattle – there are so many beautiful places to run and swim.

    I was wondering if you were coming to Seattle next week! I saw the Iron Girl tri on the calendar and thought of you πŸ™‚ I decided not to race it but let me know if you all need any last minute volunteers.

    Safe travels!

    Reading posts like yours is so motivating, may I ask what app you used to create the graph at the beginning of your post?

    It’s amazing how you must love being competitive. It takes a lot of guts to follow that rigid training schedule of yours. I take my hat off to you. More power.
