    Unrelated—but just curious if you ever heard back about how your donated hair was used? I’m thinking about cutting mine off soon for a cause and would love to be able to hear how it was used!

    BTW, amazing video… I’m sending it to my hubby who rejects learning how to do it…even though we’re planning on doing an IM70.3 next year!

    Doesn’t peak usually mean *more* than before?

      *Peak Training* refers to the second to last phase of Ironman training where you max out on your swim/bike/run. I peaked on the bike last week at 100 miles, but peaked during the run with my 16 miles which is my longest run of my training plan.

        peaking in one discipline doesn’t mean you should slack off on the others though

    Good job!
    Are you still doing the moving comfort giveaway? I thought you were announcing the winner this past Saturday.

    11 HOURS? That’s so awesome! Just started training for my very first marathon next year. Hope to get some pointers from your blog!

    Thanks for sharing that video! That’s incredible. I did 3 sprint tri’s this summer and got a flat during one and my chain fell off during another one. I could NOT get my tire off the wheel when I had a flat and 2 other bikers had to stop and assist me. I was so grateful for them, but next time I’m in that situation I’ll push even harder after having this video in my heart and head.

    Awesome job training! I use your posted swim workouts all of the time. 🙂

    Okay, I have the weirdest question and I hope you don’t take offense to it! Why do you slip one of your feet halfway out of your flipflop (the tattooed one)? I see it in a lot of your pictures! My cousin does the exact same thing and has no idea why she does it either! lol

      I think that’s just the way I stand. I have no idea I’m doing it, but I have had someone else point it out before.
