Nutrition, Triathlon

Quick morning update!

Goooood morning! I just completed my first swim since the Toronto Triathlon Festival this past July. Signed up for the TOWER 26 program with coach Gerry Rodrigues, and am very excited to improve on my swim game for next season! To me, breakfast is my favourite and most important meal. It sets the tone of the day. I love getting 3-4 slices of toast and smothering it with raw honey, 100% natural peanut butter, bananas, and DYI blueberry chia/hemp spread. Start the day right!

Race Reports, Triathlon

Race Report: My first Triathlon at TTF

Very happy and humbled with my first #triathlon race at @TorontoTriathlonFestival today! It was cloudy and drizzling, but that didn’t stop 1,500 participants from bringing their A game. That was significantly more challenging than I was expecting. Swimming in open water is very different and a lot colder than a gym pool ?. I almost quit twice after getting kicked in the face in the swim and went off course a few times…resorted to back stroke and pushed through. Riding through the core of Toronto on the Gardiner was a special experience. The winds and rain was insane to ride though. And running directly after bike feels funny. Literally the whole time I was telling myself “just get to the run”. Almost went onto the run course with my helmet still on ? but this is where I made up some time and passed people. Definitely learned a lot about myself and the triathlon process. My nutrition plan worked, but can always use improving. I can’t wait to prepare for my next one. Thank you to all the Triathletes, volunteers, event organizers, and people of #Toronto for making it a truly special day! (Probably going to have pneumonia tomorrow) ??????????????? #TriathlonTO#DigInYouGotThis #SwimBikeRun#HardWorkPaysOff #THiSIS30

Tomorrow I make my Sprint Triathlon debut. @TorontoTriathlonFestival, I’m ready for you! Despite being in a car accident earlier this week, I didn’t let that stop me seeing my favourite band @Radiohead return to #Toronto. And I’m definitely not letting it stop me from beginning one of my dreams to complete a #Triathlon. I’m physically fine, but still a little mentally shocked. I will move on. A Triathlon will be a new one for me as I’ve haven’t practiced swimming in open water or in my wetsuit too much. A newbie cyclist as well. I will be swimming 750M, cycling 20KM, and running 5KM. I can complete these all individually, but haven’t done all three with the transitions yet. Additionally, the nutritional element and timing will be experimental and improving as I do more of these events. Good luck to everyone doing the Sprint, Olympic, and relay races tomorrow morning! #TriathlonTO #DigInYouGotThis #SwimBikeRun #HardWorkPaysOff #THISIS30 #BetterWithBikes #FindFaster #PocSports #RunningonClouds
