Iron(wo)man -> Pregnant at 41! WHOA!

What a roller coaster of emotion the last few months! The highest highs to some pretty low lows. After the high of completing a very challenging FIRST EVER IRONMAN 140.6 in Lake Placid, I had never felt better. I had never been in better shape, been happier with my return to endurance sports and taking them to the next level, my new coach and team, WOW what would 2019 bring!!! 

Then...wham...I'm pregnant!! what did you say, yep I'm pregnant!!

The weeks following Ironman were very confusing for me to say the least. First, I just thought that my post Ironman hangover/depression was just hanging around for an extra long time. I just couldn't find my mojo or get my energy back. Then I found myself spontaneously napping on my home office floor for 20-30 minutes at a time. wait a minute...I started putting 2 and 2 together. I remember this fatigue from 6 years ago. I remember this nausea from 6 years ago. But I can't actually be pregnant? I just finished one of the hardest events of my life! Yep sure enough, after two home tests and a visit to the doctor I was about 7.5 weeks pregnant! almost 41 years old with almost 5 year old twin boys and now another on the way. 

talk about life changing events! I've had to reset my brain a few times over the last several weeks...now months. selfishly I was starting to really like my life again, the boys were getting older, in school, I had been able to return to racing, my job was going well...then the "mom guilt" sets in and I feel horrible for even having these thoughts. Time to reset to understanding that this is truly a blessing and now my #1 goal in life is to raise a healthy baby and take care of myself! Pregnancy at this age can be challenging but I was determined to continue to do the things I love like running, biking, swimming!! the things that my life outside of work and kids is centered around. I wanted to be one of those people who could blog about the 100s of miles I ran while pregnant! Since times had changed since the twins were born, there aren't now heart rate restrictions to follow, its all about perceived exertion. Exercise is encouraged! Yahoo! In my first few months, I was able to place 3rd in my AG at Lobsterman Triathlon (12 weeks), 3rd in my AG in a local 10k and then I rode 60 miles in the King Challenge bike event...everything was going just awesome! 

well, my body had other ideas about how well things were going...enter the exercise restrictions...enter the scary prognosis that my cervix was thinning too early. enter the low lows again. enter the resetting the brain to the #1 goal of growing a healthy baby who stays in the oven until its safe to come out. I spent way too much time with the twins in the NICU, its not worth the trip back there with a preemie. enter coming to terms with weight gain and only walking as my exercise.

but also enter the joy of feeling my baby GIRL kicking and seeing her on the screen growing before my eyes. She is truly an amazing blessing for this family! I'm excited to continue to write about my journey and would love to hear feedback from all of the other badass mommas on this team! 

Traditions, travel, turkeys ... oh and TRAINING!

It's the most wonderful time of the year! In more ways than one you can figure out how much you can truly juggle!

I get to do an Ironman!

Update from Winner Colleen Schaible of our 2017 iracelikeagirl Red Bull Sponsored Ironman Entry - 

It has been quite an exciting July and August! My first season back to participating in Triathlon and it has certainly been an exciting one. Little did I know that when I was introduced to I Race Like a Girl and Angela Naeth that the next few weeks following would be life changing! So, you want to hear the words “You are an Ironman”! well now I have the chance thanks to Angela and our wonderful sponsor in Red Bull! So begins my journey to Lake Placid  2018.


And then there is the “O Shit” moment when you realize, you are on the journey to 140.6 miles in just over 11 months while juggling your full-time job as a Director of Sales for 7 states and more importantly your family life with 3.5 year old twins! How the heck am I going to do this? I barely have time to brush my teeth some mornings, where am I going to find an extra 15 – 20 hours a week to train? Take it one day at a time, plan ahead, work the plan, find some inspiration…that’s easy, my #twinpower… dig deep and then dig deeper. But we’ll get to that…  But first, let’s finish the 2017 season strong!

Next up, the Pumpkinman Olympic Triathlon in South Berwick, ME. This race is in just over four weeks, it takes place in a beautiful setting with a fresh water swim, rolling bike and run. I haven’t had any formal coaching yet this year, just following some online training plans but given the challenge on the horizon, I thought better to start now with some real training plans! So, enter Angela, training peaks, heart rate, nutrition and a week one plan that included over 100 miles on the bike! Giddy Up!
I feel pretty good about my performance on week one. I did miss one swim, life just got in the way, and lost some daylight on my last ride of the week, but legs and lungs felt strong throughout the week.

My biggest realization is my nutrition practices are pretty basic/terrible and that I need to slow my roll on my training runs! This is where the discipline and planning are really going to be important over the next several months. Train like you race, is the new mantra, so will be working on these nutrition practices over the next few weeks leading in to my last two races.

Race Report
Amesbury Dam Sprint Tri 7.8.17

Beautiful day for a Sprint Tri in my hometown! Overcast morning, lake temp of 72, light winds. It is my first official race this season after taking 4 years off following the birth of our twins, Colton & Chase. Overall nerves were pretty calm as I had a group of amazing women who had trained together for the event there with me! In to the water we went! I found a fast, clear path to swim and given it is the lake I train in, I felt very comfortable in the water. One of my best ½ mile swims in just over 13 minutes and 2nd out of the water in my wave. Transition felt a little frantic, always my worst Tri leg! The bike felt harder than it should given I know the roads like the back of my hand, averaged just over 17mph on a rolling course. Finally, on to the run, this transition never feels easy no matter the distance. My friends were out on course and that made for an awesome last 2 miles. I averaged a 7:20 which is super fast for me! My boys were there to watch me, which made the race really special! I came in 2nd in my age group for the race! What was more fun is I was able to watch 3 of my friends finish who were first timers! We were all together to enjoy a cold brew on the beach afterwards!
