The past couple of weeks have still been busy as ever, but racing season is now well under way….in fact, I already hit the half-way point! The past couple of weeks I have been focusing on my next couple of races in July; Lifetime Fitness Triathlon on July 10th and the London WCS race on July 25th. With what has already been a long season of racing a travel; I have spend the past couple of weeks getting back into some base fitness to carry me through the end of the season. With racing, I sometimes encounter little bumps in the road and I had to take a couple weeks off running post Madrid/Des Moines to get over some tendinitis in my left foot. I have been back to running for the past couple of weeks now and ready to finish the season strong!
Earlier this week, I spend a few days in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for a TYR photo shoot. We arrived at the end of the Ironman last Sunday and got to see some age grouper’s finishing up their day. I have to say that Coeur d’Alene has to be one of the most beautiful places in the country (at least this time of year!). Lakes, mountain pines, and fresh air are plentiful and what a great place for some amazing pictures. I arrived back home on Wednesday night with just one week until I leave for Minneapolis. The fast forward button has been set on the remote control since spring and I feel it is still flying by so far this summer!
Shortly after I return home from Minnesota, I am co-hosting a webinar with Bob Seebohar on July 12th. You can learn all about race day nutrition and what might work best for you.
