Is It Summer Yet?!

And just like that, the first week of Eagleman-specific training is complete. The title of this post was inspired by a week of cold, rain, wind and snow flurries…and a lot of indoor training. I miss riding my bike outdoors. I mean, at this point I’ll settle for sunny & 40s without the damn wind … More Is It Summer Yet?!

Recovery Week

I got the warm fuzzies when I saw this on my Monday Training Peaks schedule for two reasons: 1. RECOVERY WEEK and 2. Eagleman-specific training!

Sport + Life: 2017

It’s almost the end of 2017, so I’m highlighting a few memorable moments of the year in sport and in life. Since this is a triathlon blog, let’s start with sport, shall we? My favorite moment, hands down, of the year was Maine 70.3. All 6 hours, 48 minutes and 40 seconds of it. Instead … More Sport + Life: 2017
