Second round of the winter series done. Felt a lot stronger than the last round yet placed 4 places back at 39th of 104. Final 2 laps were only 10 seconds apart so the goal of consistency is happening. As usual fuelled by the excellent @tailwindnutritionuk and used their new Rebuild recovery drink for after. It mixes well, tastes fantastic and feels like it’s worked, best recovery drink I’ve tried. Will be training mega hard over Xmas for the next round.

Not the finish time I was aiming for when I was consistently training this summer, especially since my bike pace took a big hit (#MinnesotaWinter ), and my swim was slow because I struggled with the 57° water temp (I don’t recommend it 🥶). BUT I HAD SO MUCH FUN because I wasn’t focused on data. I bawled at the finish line and into my post-race tacos. This part of the world is gorgeous, and I got to enjoy the scenery- from the baby cow with its head on the fence wondering what the heck the 2600 humans were doing to the beautiful mountains right off the course. I made a friend I ran the last couple miles with who gave me the motivation to sprint through the last half mile to the finish. A fellow athlete I kept leap frogging with most of the run waited for me at the finish line to give me a high five. I’m on cloud nine and incredibly thankful to @triteamlc for the support and the continuous inspiration from my fellow teammates. Thank you to friends and family who blew up my phone before and during the race. Thank you @kask_cycling for the helmet and glasses that I seriously love and trust. @nuunhydration was an absolute must in this dessert climate. Thanks @santini_triathlon for the gorgeous kit that I got so many compliments on. Thank you @honeystinger for creating chews and waffles I like the taste of and my stomach can tolerate. I’ll probably in bed by six. #triteamlc#indianwells703#stingorbeestung#im703IWLQ#honeystingerhive#winslowtris#journeyto70point3#firsthalfironman#makeyourwatercount#santinisms#madeinitaly#kaskkoo#nononsense#runswedish#kaskcycling#koosunglasses#shareyourkoo#shareyourkask#pushyourlimits#tacxperience
🥇Elle est là!!! La première victoire de 2018! Et en plus sur la première course VTT AE de la région organisé par @team_gso ▪️ 40’ de course sans trop de concurrence, plein gaz aussi bien avec que sans moteur! 📈 176bpm de moyenne cardiaque et 188 maxi! Il faut s’employer même avec un moteur! Très content d’être le premier, j’espère d’une longue liste, à remporter une course e-VTT sur la région toulousaine. Pour l’occasion j’étais sous les couleurs du magasin @toulouse_bikes qui m’avait prêté un bon @haibikefrance #sduro 🏆 comme ça ne suffisait pas @ylan_vignaux prend la 🥈 place pour signer le doublé @toulouse_bikes !!! #hautegaronne#vtt#emtb#toulousebikes#haibike#sdurofullseven8#kaskcycling#castelli#oakley#mtb#race#pechdavid#asmuretcycliste#ffc#cycling#cyclisme
A friend I was chatting to in the pool this morning asked me how I was feeling.
Stoked was my answer.
And it made me think.
I’ve joined Masters swimming. We have an amazing coach, someone I wish we had locally teaching when I raced @xterraoffroad.
It’s so fun for me ( even though my starting point is below zero) and social and stimulating.
Then this snow.
Such a treat. I think embracing the snow and all opportunities for well rounded base building fitness is a tool.
It’s a candy 🍭 shop of options - one I’m so happy to be utilizing this winter.
Greetings from the beautiful kingdom of Brunei ! @awanotreknology3 and @tsallydontdally (Treknology3 MTB Ambassador ) travelled to the country for the UCI Asian Mountain Bike Series 2018, its been a good day of practice on the superb course. Plenty of nerve wrecking roots and rocks and flowy sections to make for a sensational race day tomorrow !
After practice - the team headed to Treknology3 Sole Dealer in Brunei, @cyclenationbn for a visit, it was a great opportunity for the team and our dealer to mingle and discuss about the awesome cycling community in Brunei !
