Another busy day but also a great one.πŸ˜€ 4am wake up call as I had to go into work early because I needed to leave for a few hours as my daughter had an exam to try and get into a school with an opportunity class. I dropped her off for the exam then had an hour to kill so I went to the pool and did a few laps. 2700m in 1 hour and it was so nice and sunny. β˜€οΈ I did some sets, 100m fast, 100m slow, 200m fast, 100m slow, 300m fast then back down like a pyramid. Also threw in some paddles and flippers with the pool buoy then just 400m of easy pace to finish off. 🏊🏻 Picked Ella up then dropped her back to school before going back to work until 16:30. Hectic day and a stop off at the gym for leg day before coming home.🏑 Had a monster 500g steak for dinner so I'm as full as can be now. πŸ‘ Another 4:30 start at work tomorrow so it will be the wind trainer tomorrow night when I get home. Hope you've all had a great day guys, happy Hump Day.😊😊😊 #swimbikerun #swimmer #swimming #tri_community #triswimpics #40andfit #notbadforanoldgeezer #triathlontraining #triathleteintraining #ironmantraining #journeytoironman #roadtoironman #obsessedrunner #injuredrunner

My harshest triathlon so far !
#punetriathlon #ironman70.3 #journeytoironman #swimbikerun

TRI-JOURNEY | my first triathlon is in the bag! ✊🏾 I had a lot of fun and I definitely learned a lot along the way!

Sitting down with a green tea to read the amazing @turiapitt 's book, Unmasked. Have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this! This woman is the epitomy of strength and resilience πŸ’™ #turiapitt #bigfan #journeytoironman #motivation #determination

My friend texted me this pic of the shirts my supporters/cheer squad will be wearing in Lake Placid in 13 days! Made me cry. Amazing friends. Wrote a blog post (link in bio) about trying to calm the eff down and enjoy the anticipation and the unknown! #journeytoironman #imlp2017 #gratefultriathlete #teamluckiest #ourtripod

It's taken me a few days, but thank you to everyone for the support from both near and far! The encouragement, support, and well wishes helped make my day just a little bit easier. The race did not go as planned, but i still got to hear those 4 simple words from Mike Reilly... Abby, YOU ARE AN IRONMAN! *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
With a swim of 1:08:53, bike of 7:08:57 and run of 5:49:17... my total time was 14:22:41. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Let's get this Tempo Tuesday off to a good start! #WattBikeDeath #MPG #TempoTuesday #Fitness #journeytoironman

What a day so far! First half marathon in the books! This was a huge step to the ultimate goal. Finished at 1:47 and felt great! #journeytoironman

#tempotuesday and it was a 4am wake up call so I could go to the gym before work then a 1 hour interval session on the wind trainer after I got home tonight. 🚴🏻 My legs were a bit tired tonight but I still put in a good effort to try and get my bloody heart rate up. Cadence was kept at around 90rpm as per instructed and my average heart rate was 139bpm. Only managed 22.78km's and average speed was 22.8kph.😳 God knows how you guys go so fast on these things as my little chicken legs just don't seem to be able to go that fast at the moment. πŸ₯ I was tagged in a post earlier by my buddy in NZ @catherine.is.running to do a handstand. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈSwipe left for my terrible attempt of one and a #tittytuesdayy mug shot.πŸ˜†I need to try this outside where there is more room so I don't put my foot through a wall in the house.πŸ™ˆ The third picture is my son having ago, he loves to show off but I'm not sure where he gets that from πŸ€” Must be his mother πŸ˜‰ Happy Thursday Guys 😊 #windtrainer #tri_community #triathlontraining #triathleteintraining #ironmantraining #journeytoironman #injuredrunner #obsessedrunner #notbadforanoldgeezer #40andfit #tri_community #swimbikerun

Whoop! That was a tough visit to the pain cave but came away with a new FTP! Still building the engine for Ironman πŸ’ͺ. Always push your boundaries. Go beyond what you think you're capable of. Your body will only do what your mind allows. You can do it πŸ‘

Turbo Tuesday! I've gone #blue and finally replaced the old tyre with a proper turbo tyre. Let's hope it gives extra grip and transfer of power πŸ’ͺ. FTP test today means a visit to the pain cave - I know how much this is going to hurt 😬😱

Nice ride today :) Super duper hot but I had great company to make it really fun! Loving this #journeytoironman !!

I am so proud to call @rachelanneschmidt a friend and fellow @oacracing teammate. I got to know Rachel last year while we were both training for fall marathons. She's one of a kind. From beating cancer just over 5 years ago, today she completed her very first @ironmantri {in a very impressive time}. Girl, you are on fire. πŸ”₯πŸ™Œβ€οΈ #youareanironman #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

There was only one roar getting me through today's workout. Still can't believe it #ripchester #vegan #plantpower #triathlon #journeytoironman

Its been a great few days so far in Lake Placid. Bikes are racked, gear bags dropped and it's about time for the final sleep!
Getting to the start line is the first step. The finish line the final. And a whole lot of in betweens. And I just have to keep moving forward and enjoy the day.
Thanks to Kelby Thornton, Lori Soriano and Sharley Simpson for bringing me along on this crazy journey.
Huge thanks to @radhallman and @cts_trainright for helping get me here as ready as I'll ever be! You are seriously the best ever!
And @ironmanvoice ... I'm coming for ya! *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Couldnt get to the starting line tomorrow without my incredible husband who is my biggest fan and cheerleader. He does an #ironman every year-- effortlessly-- but makes a big deal when I do my third 😊. I put my issues aside this time around and we had a great season training together. I am so lucky to do what I love with the man I love. #triathletelove Now...let's DO this!!!! #imlp #imlp2017 #igotthis #goals #letsdothis #triathlete #triathlon #ironcouple #ironman3 #ironman1406 #ironmanlife #ironmantraining #journeytoironman #swimbikerun #fitfam #lakeplacid

If you're looking for me out on the #IMLP course tomorrow, here's my get-up! Plus a purple cast 😜🏁 See ya out there! #race #journeytoironman #swimbikerun #triathlon #wattieink #wattieinkhitsquad #timex #ironman

A 75min wind training interval session was on the plan this morning. 🚴🏻 I stuffed it up a bit and actually ended up doing 85mins so I must have thrown and extra set in there by accident. πŸ™ˆ This is definitely becoming a bit of a trend with me and my sessions #muppet but I can tell you I have been really trying in all of them and working my butt off as I want to make this work and achieve my goal.πŸ‘ I'm going for a 3 hour ride tomorrow with a few people who I've met off #strava which should be fun as long as they don't end up being serial killers. πŸ˜‚ Happy Saturday Guys, its official beer time. 🍻🍻🍻 #notbadforanoldgeezer #obsessedrunner #40andfit #triathlontraining #triathleteintraining #triswimpics #tri_community #swimbikerun #ironmantraining #injuredrunner #journeytoironman #roadtoironman #windtrainer #meridascultura5000 #garminfenix5
