- Some pre-yoga shenanigans! It's Thursday, yoga day! That makes the second time I've done yoga in like a 12 hour period...and it felt amazing. It's incredible how much stress builds up and you don't even realize you're carrying it around. . . Today's class was a pretty tough one with tons of core work, but it was just what I needed! Didn't squeeze the swim in, but I think rest and stretch was more what my body wanted after such a busy week at work. I have a short day tomorrow so I'll get some good swimming in then. . . #yoga #namaste #handstandMissed my morning swim so will have to make up tomorrow, but did do some outside yoga! Gorgeous spring day; loving the warm weather! . . #yoga #namaste #swimbikerun #tritraining #optoutside #gooutside #getoutside #spring #triathlon #triathlete #trimom #motivation #crosstrain #restday #fitmom #fitnessaddict #strong #strongereverydayTrack work Tuesday! It was burst day (200s), which is not my favorite, but I busted it out with authority! Tested out my new racing flats today, too! @mizunorunningnorthamerica's wave hitogami 3s, they were awesome! I can't wait to push my limits in the 5k on Saturday! . Also did a bunch of strength/core work when I got home. I feel totally worn out, but in the best way possible! I've been reading @deena8050 's new book and it's really helping me shift my brain to positive thinking while I work out. (And maybe in general too!) I'm up to a 3min 15 sec plank too, but I'll do that later because my arms are jelly! . #runhappy #run #runner #plankchallenge #plank #speedworkPerformed my first bike maintenance today! I cleaned my cassette a little and those other little gear things down over by there (I said I performed maintenance, not became an expert 😂🤣) and cleaned and lubed the chain! Super proud of myself and totally astonished at how different the spin was with a "fresh" chain. Definitely need to make sure this is always a priority. . . After that did a 45 minute easy spin. I'm really looking to get better on the bike, and for that I have to practice. Nothing great is ever achieved easily! . . #cyclinglife #fromwhereiride #bikes #cyclegirls #training #trimom #triathlete #triathlon #ridemore #rideyourbike #ridebikes #livetoride #trilikeagirl #beatyesterday #whywetri #inknburn #inknburnambassador #bocogear #bocogearambassadorHit the Capital trail with this motley crew! They are a good deal quicker than me on the bike so I chased...but it was so good for me. I went much faster than I normally do and felt great! It's so beautiful outside today, I was very lucky to get the opportunity to ride! . . #triathlete #triathlon #swimbikerun #sunSunburned and can still crack a smile? It's because our event for @rmhcrichmond (the @bigpigproject ) was a wild success! We Don't have the final numbers yet, but at least 30% more money raised than last year! It was a beautiful day and an awesome event. Thanks @lunchorsupper for hosting! . . Pushed my brick back to tomorrow, so will get in some more outdoors time then...with slightly more sunscreen. . #run #bike #swimbikerun #triathlete
