Double run day!! It all started with a party on the treadmills for the 1st run. I was blessed with perfect weather for the 2nd run outdoors. I felt great during both runs - which doesn’t always happen. All in all, it was a 25 mile day for me!! Now, excuse me while I go eat everything!! #ironmantraining#IMTX#runhappy
my legs are dead but my tummy has never been so happy- breakfast for dinner is on the post run menu! and CARROT CAKE OATMEAL is SO good wow.... made with tons of ground carrot, oats, maple syrup, almond milk, spices, a hefty scoop of vanilla protein, and pumpkin seeds 🥕 i think i have a new favorite recovery meal! here’s to spring 🌸🐰
I know I posted this in my #instagram story not too long ago, but it’s one of the big things going on in my life at the moment. I’ve always been concerned about how my knees (more details below if you don’t know my story and you’re interested) would cope with the stresses of an Ironman and thought that a full distance would be close to the last race I ever did....and then I thought bugger it! Life’s too short and uncertain to hold off on chasing your dreams so #ironmanwesternaustralia I’m coming for you!
Another big change is at work, where I’ve been given an opportunity as Acting Head of Faculty for Mathematics for the rest of the year. It’s going to be a challenge, but I’m up for it 👍
Knees: ruptured my right ACL a little over 20 years ago, had a reconstruction and developed a staph infection which put me back in hospital for 3 weeks. Ruptured my left ACL 10 years ago and again 5 years ago, had it reconstructed twice but I’ve been left with no medial meniscus, and significant damage to the cartilage in my knee 😖
Guess who’s back on @gozwift !! I have had a lul in training ... new job, new HUGE responsibilities, and also a new house on the way ... so I’ve been very busy! Just a nice little 8 mile ride to get me back and cycling. More to follow! Oh and just a little FYI... I just got my @fizikofficial @fizik_saddle Fizik Carbon saddle and it’s probably one of the most comfortable saddles I’ve used thus far! Love it!!
