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

Travel, traditions, turkeys oh and training…it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Well, it’s definitely the time of year for reflection, adaption and looking forward! It’s not the end of the year, but the beginning of amazing things to come. I like to think of the holidays that way. It’s a time of year where you are surrounded by friends and family to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. To reflect on the past but also discuss new beginnings and plans for 2018. And, oh what a big year 2018 is shaping up to be!!

It’s also the time of year when stress, sickness and fatigue can bring you in to a slump if you allow it. This is especially true for all of the moms out there who are juggling kids and school, kids bringing bugs home from school, holiday travel, a career, decorating the house for the holidays, planning and attending holiday events and attempting to wow the kiddos on Christmas day!! I can say I’ve been dealing with all of the above and it hasn’t been easy so far. I have tested my mental capacity to choose to train in the spare time I have vs. nap :) I have also challenged my family to give me the time to train when we really don't have it. The one thing I do know in all of this is the time that I can set aside for training is the ME time. It's the time when I can shut all of that chaos out of my head, even if for just 30 minutes (and hopefully that nagging MOM GUILT). And it is certainly rejuvenating and necessary in many ways…and not only beneficial for me but for those around me who get a little less stressed out Colleen after I’m finished!

So the last several weeks have been base build weeks for me for training. The bright spot for me so far has been how far my swim has come along. I have to say, I have had some speedy days in the pool! I have been doing most of this training alone, just me, my watch and waterproof iPod (a necessity if you don’t have one!). I’ve been thinking about jumping in to the “ego group” aka “masters” group at my gym on a few nights but so far I’m enjoying the solo time in the water. And of course, it is the time of the year where the hamster meets the wheel…the dreaded indoor trainer sessions have begun. I’m not sure what’s worse, the deathmill or the trainer…I will be sure to follow up on that question as the winter progresses! So far my longest indoor ride is just below 2 hours. I expect I will be catching up on some much needed tv over the winter down in the pain cave.

From a running perspective, I have my ups and downs so far this fall. The weather truly hasn’t been too bad so far which is a plus. A lot of travel has kept me on hotel treadmills here and there but training is about how well you can adapt to life. Whether it’s 5 a.m. or 8 p.m. you just have to fit it in.

As for fall running, I had two races on the calendar. First was the Harborside ½ Marathon in Newburyport on 11/19. The day was wet, slightly warm then cold, no rain then pouring rain, and oh the wind! 20mph+ gusts!! I started out pretty strong during the event and very consistent. But by about mile 10 I knew a bonk was in my future. Around mile 11, with just 2.1 to go I just couldn’t push any more. I had to run walk to the end, finishing just under 2 hours, 1:58 to be exact! So far from a PR but a respectable time nonetheless. My next race was the Killington VT Turkey Trot. This year’s didn’t have snow but it did have an 18 degree temp to start! Quite the race, it starts with a flat ½ mile and then proceeds to climb 800+ feet to a turnaround point then straight back down to the finish! So mile 1 was 8:49, mile 2 was 9:17 and then mile 3 was 7:39, one of my fastest miles but certainly with gravity helping me a bit…I ended up 9th overall female with a 26:17 run, fairly respectable in my book given that I really don't consider myself a runner!  

Currently I don’t have another race on the books until March but I’m sure I will get the bug in January to do something! There is a local indoor triathlon series that I will participate in and then try to find a local race to keep me moving in January or February. Something about toeing the line that keeps the adrenaline pumping when the temps dip down below freezing and the snow is flying in New England. I'm already being coaxed in to a late January 16 miler!!

I can hardly believe it is December and just a few weeks until 2018. I have to say I'm super thankful for my family and support system, my beautiful twins, my amazing friends and my new support group in the wonderful ladies of I Race Like a Girl…2018 is going to be the best yet in many ways but in one big way, the year of this IRLAG becoming an IRONMAN!


Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Training Season!
