My food on the bike was gels, chews, tailwind and a baggie of mixed real food- sourdough pretzel sticks, ginger snaps, almond snickers, kit kats, almond chocolate cups (think Reeces with almond butter) and chocolate covered ginger. I think for IMMD I’m going to leave the kit kats and snickers out and instead bring a wawa soft pretzel and more…[Read more]
Holy crap IMLP is in the books. Here’s a not-so-brief race report if anyone is interested.
Thanks everyone for all your love and support.
It wasn’t the race of my dreams, but it was exactly the race I needed. This was my fourth Ironman, and, despite being 4 hours off (yes, that’s hours not minutes!) my personal best, it is my most m…[Read more]
Thanks! It’s been super fun. The last month+ has been tough, but I’m excited to get to the mountains and try not to get stuck in the past. It’ll be a long training day with food and friends!
I did do something crazy not too long ago. I signed up for Ironman Maryland. I’ll be joining y’all in September!
If anyone needs or knows of anyone who needs a last minute camping spot tonight or tomorrow, i have space at mine. Site 21. My puppy is staying at home 🙁 and it’s a dog friendly site. Feel free to let HIM, Oly and NTP forums know if anyone’s in a bind. Just text me so I know who’s coming . 2024239687. It’s just me and one housemate. We have r…[Read more]
Oh that’s a great suggestion! I’ll have to try PWF.
I really like Greenbelt. It’s super close (to me) and has some solid hills. On Weekdays, there are very few cars. I can’t speak for weekends.
I’ve been struggling for motivation for my long ride this week, so yesterday I took my mountain bike out and rode 6 hours on the C&O Canal. Not only…[Read more]
This is so sad. I have so much respect for the work he did. I’m planning on going tomorrow. Will anyone else be there? Let me know if you’d like a ride. I can fit 2 bikes in my van (so one more), or 4 if I ever fix my bike rack. I live super close to Catholic Athletic complex, so if you’re within a few miles, I can swing by and get you in the morning.
Take 2 of the email:
Ironman is excited to announce the added nutrition of GU ROCTANE Energy Gels and BASE Performance Bars today. Both gels and bars will be added to the on-course support starting at IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside on April 6th, 2019 and will be available at the full distance IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events.
There are…[Read more]
Ironman sent this out today regarding on course nutrition.
I’m heading out of town this weekend, so i did long ride #1 today. It was waaaay too wet to ride outside so this was done on my trainer. Finally, some of this was scraped together because i haven’t been to a store in a few days – but, it worked out relatively well.
Here’s what I tried and learned:
* honey stinger waffle vanilla – delicious! Ate…[Read more]

Wired Cycling in Eckington has a class Tuesdays at 6:15am led by a DC Tri member and designed for triathletes. The class is awesome and the whole studio is super welcoming. I’ve been going religiously since they started the class in January. I highly recommend it. The class is called Spartan Strength.
I also go to the Friday 12pm class there too…[Read more]
I know we’re all experimenting with bike nutrition so I thought maybe it’d be helpful to start a thread just on this. Of course, we’re all different and what works for one, may be a disaster for another, but I’d love to hear what everyone’s trying.
So , here goes:
* Honey bbq potato chips –> left a terrible after taste. Won’t use i…[Read more]
I’m not on facebook, is there another way to get info on moco rides? What’s the details? I’d love to join you.
I rode bates and mccormack drives, behind the CU athletic complex and dc dump, today and had a similar experience with wind. I kept thinking about eagleman!
On sundays, the dump is closed so there’s almost no cars making it great for…[Read more]
Rebecca had mentioned a study done on athletes consuming tart cherry juice after a workout to reduce inflamation, I came across tart cherry extract pill supplement. Has anyone tried the pills? Any anecdotes?
I love doing my long rides on the trainer….it’s safe, comfortable, easier logistics, takes less time. I get a great workout in that I can do in my room, and still be able to be somewhat social with my housemates. I did about 80% of my training for my 2nd IM on the trainer. I got strong.
That being said, I know one of my hurdles is my…[Read more]
I’ve been following a hybrid bike training plan while OSP was going on. Saturday we did the wrapup threshold test which came at the very end of a recovery week. I see my calendar for IMLP has another, albeit different format, threshold test tomorrow. Does it make sense to test on the bike 3 days apart?
Now that OSP is done, It will be he…[Read more]
Thanks for the reminder! I grabbed a campsite. My housemates and puppy are coming along but if anyone’s in a bind with camping, we have a converted van that sleeps 4 to 5 (where most of us will likely be sleeping) plus some extra tent space. Let me know if anyone needs to pitch a tent with us.
On that note, some of my collective can help with k…[Read more]
It was great meeting y’all today and thanks for a great training and learning day. I’m super pumped for next weekend! Yaaaaas to a great start of 2019!
I’m heading to Boston at the end of the month which happens to coincide with Tri Mania on March 24. I will likely have 1 to 2 spots in my van if anyone wants to catch a ride with me,…[Read more]
Some of them are still available. What are you looking for? PM me.
