I’m always looking for fun recipes that are healthy and easy to make - if you find them, share them and we can share our love of food! :)
Yes! I love finding recipes for easy, cheap, simple foods/snacks/meals/whatever.
Now I’ll have even more of an excuse to find them, try them, and share them :)
pedlooo asked: hey i am going to compete for the ironman tirathlon next year but i need to start from somewhere!! i need a 36 week training program but all i have found cost way too much! like 200 euro or something! have you got any or do u know anyone that can give me one of those? i really appreciate it! thank you!
That’s crazy expensive! I can’t see myself paying that much for a workout schedule—SO I ran a quick Google search and found these:
They might be exactly the same, I’m not sure, but they’re both 36 week broken down workout/training schedules for Ironman.
I hope those help :)
And GOOD LUCK!
teacupsandtrainers asked: Hey beautiful, just wanted to wish you luck for your triathlon! I've been watching your training and I know you're going to rock it! Don't worry about your gear or the technicalities, they'll all fall into place. Just do your best and we'll be so proud =) xxx
Thank you so much! I can’t believe it’s tomorrow. I picked up my race packet and I’m trying to be EXCITED rather than anxious—because this is supposed to be fun, not torturous. Can’t wait to tell everyone how it went! (Hopefully well, hah!)
run-to-happiness asked: hey love your blog! i'm trying to train for a triathlon as well so i was just wondering what is your workout schedule??
Thank you! That’s awesome— I hope your training’s going well!
As for my workout schedule, I use one from FitnessMagazine.com, It’s an 8 week schedule:
Anonymous asked: you're doing good for a beginner. swimming a 3min/100m, dont know how long the swim is for your race but pros can swim in the 1-1:15 range even for open water! swimming is hard to get great at later in life. you have to work on all your inefficiencies (form) and do fitness/strength work; paddles are great for this. i dont know if you need a hard goal just work on getting the time down. also there are open water tech. you should read about (sighting, breathing and straight arm)
Hear that, guys? I’m not awful, hah.
Thank you so much!
I have been swimming all my life, I practically grew up in the water— never was on a swim team though, but I have been swimming on and off for years.
I can definitely see how strength training is going to be beneficial here, namely arm and shoulder work, but that’s something else I’m working on, too. Hopefully that combined with being in the water a fair amount will help.
And I will absolutely be reading up on open water swimming for tips and techniques and such— again, thank you!
Anonymous asked: Grace, I am amazed by your ability to be so honest about yourself to the world. You are an incredible person and an inspiration. I wish you the best of luck with your training. You will most definitely rock it out!
Thank you so much :)
This is something I desperately needed to hear (read? see? in any case—) right now.
If my story can help anybody in any way… then it’s worth sharing.
