Workout Results 6/12

Today was my longest bike ride so far! I felt good and maintained a strong avg speed despite the stop signs and increase in distance. I have improved so much over the past 2 months with my riding. It is hard to believe and is encouraging to see. On April 21st I had my longest ride of 25.23 miles and my average was 14.7 mph. Today, I did 33.22 miles, with hills and still pulled a 16.6 mph avg! I came home from the ride and went for a .51 mile swim and then did some yard work. It was the best way to end a fabulous week!

I will leave you with this video. The song is one of my favorites and every time I listen to it, I just want to soar and now they put it with an Ironman trailer, well you can imagine how thrilled I was to see this! I cannot get enough of watching these phenomenal athletes living out their dream! I just keep thinking that each of them had to start somewhere, and maybe just maybe with hard work and dedication, I to can live out my dream!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Greatest... Video... Ever.

I found it last year before my first tri and have watched it at least 50 times since. I get a lump in my throat EVERY time. It is so awe-inspiring.

Hope training is going well and I'm looking forward to your next race report! Crush it girl!
