Fabulous February

3rd March 2010 | 0 Comments

Another February, and another Hyannis Half Marathon & 10K with the team and other local tri friends. The only difference this year for me was not racing. I know I had said I was doing the 10K, but it didn’t quite make sense given my hip and hammy tightness and just good plain [...]

Is WINTER over yet?

Another 5 hour ride on the trainer today. I managed to watch two movies and the Ironman World Championships. I took down 5 bottles of PowerBar Endurance, 2 PowerGels, and 2 Powerbars… totally not good for the teeth! Here is a pic of the Saturday ride buffet from last weekend. It looked [...]

Back on track!

So, I was back on the wagon for about two weeks and then BAM! I had a mini meltdown. I was just not ready to get back in the diet game. As we all know, round the holidays is EXTREMELY tough to stick to a healthy diet. Instead of me snapping, [...]

I am now on the second week of training since my 3 week off/ 2 week light workout phase. For the first time, I am actually having trouble motivating. I am not sure if it is becasue I am just out of shape or if I am still tired from my 2009 season. [...]

3 weeks of rest and FOOD

2nd November 2009 | 0 Comments

After Kona i had three weeks to be a non-athlete… no workouts and all the food I wanted. I was so looking forward to this given the length of the 2009 training season. I actually was way more excited about the food than the no workouts. The last time I was off [...]

Yay Carbs!

Well, given Monday night’s fat load was a disaster, I am being smarter during the Thursday/ Friday carbo load. I am doing so by stuffing my face the right way.. one meal at a time (with snacks). It has been a long 24 hours of eating…and I am still not done! As of [...]

One word: AWESOME! This place rocks! I flew in on Sunday night and couldn’t really see much, but when I woke up Monday morning, I can now see why people rave about Hawaii! The house we are staying at has a beautiful ocean view, a fabulous pool, and yes a LONG steep [...]

Goodbye BOOT…hello SNEAKS!

18th August 2009 | 0 Comments

I have graduated from the BOOT and moved on to my SNEAKERS!! FINALLY! It seems like forever ago when I was diagnosed with the fracture. The x-rays showed a pretty much mended 3rd metatarsal. Also, my new orthotics arrived and I was given the rundown on how to break them in… kind [...]

The verdict is in… FRACTURED 3rd metatarsal… sad foot, sad triathlete… just a sad day
Per my last post, I was in the clear and so HAPPY. Well, I was fooled! The doc suggested a follow-up x-ray before Lake Placid to be sure I was good to go, as small [...]

The Foot

The MRI showed no stress fracture… yippppeeee! Dr. Neil Feldman is the best Yesterday I had a visit with him and we did an x-ray and today it was the urgent MRI. Love that he is all business when it comes to injuries so close to race day. He [...]
