IMMT Nov 2017 Lessons Learned - ❤️🚴🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️☕ Morning fix🏃🏻‍♀️

Quote for this month: 🎶 “If you are going to do it, commit yourself fully to it. Your biggest challenge isn’t someone else. It’s the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells “Can’t,” but, you don’t listen. You just push harder. And then hear the voice whisper “Can.” And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are."

On-track with adding core, bike and run this month 🤗. I gained a lot of support from my friends this month, receiving abundant gifts and personal visits from friends. ♡ This has been helping me stay on track. Thank you for supporting me as I train for my 2nd Ironman, the Ironman Mont-Tremblant in Quebec Canada (IMMT). The Race is schedule for August 19, 2018. ♡ 

Here are my lessons learned this month, I learned that ….

  1. You glow! Your energy is high, and your body is running in tip top shape. 💪💃
  2. Enjoy the process. Training for an Ironman is tough, but it’s part of the journey. Do it with a smile.  ðŸ’‹ 🔥
  3. When the workouts get harder, challenge yourself to be stronger.
  4. Sometimes your coach will push you to the limits, because they have greater faith in you than you have in yourself.
  5. Be persistent!!!!! Start running, go to the gym, run around the track, whatever it takes to get the miles in. 
  6. It’s always good to stay open to new ideas and possibilities. I’m studying up on Total Immersion Swimming for improving my technique. 
  7. Expand my Focus: Health. Fitness. Spiritual. Meditation. Social. Money. Career. Creativity. Balance. Get out of my own way. Step back and view everything holistically. Look beyond my perceived immediate impacts.
  8. Stop stalling, sign up and let the wind move your sails in the right direction.
  9. A hand written Self Journal gives me thinking time to reflect. It’s working much better, I’ve added the additional bike and run workouts to my routine because it's actionable and making me accountable.
  10. Remember the Goal! Running is a lot like life. Run a race (pursue life) with patience, with Knowledge (Gain Wisdom), and with Understanding. Remember the Goal. ALWAYS remember the goal. Whatever you do, do all to the Glory of God.

IMMT October 2017 Lesson learned ❤️🚴🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️☕ Morning fix....🏃🏻‍♀️

Training for Ironman Mont-Tremblant! 

Quote for this month: LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!


This month is much more emotional and I am resistant. I looked up the distance to Quebec and it will be a good 16 hour car-drive. I'd like to plan to drive up to Quebec and ride the course at least once in the spring, I get worried I won't know the course. I am hard on myself because I'm not swimming fast enough and I struggle to get out there to run. But, I know I can do this and will. Believe me, I surely will get to the finish line strong.

I continue to ramp up my workouts and need to be more focused on the bike and run this time around.  Ironman training helps me appreciate the time I can spend with my family and friends. 


A few things to remember, is "Why complicate life? Adjust and readjust as necessary. Things will always come up. Train to overcome the mind." 

Remember...
  • Wanna be understood? train, get on your bike, run, swim.
  • Have question? train, get on your bike, run, swim.
  • Don't like something? train, get on your bike, run, swim.
  • Want something? train, get on your bike, run, swim.
  • Love someone? train, get on your bike, run, swim.
Here are my lessons learned this month, I learned that ….
  1. Take time to look how far you've come. Who would have thought that I would be holding my breath and flutter kicking to the flags. Flip then hold breath and flutter 3, 4, even 5 kicks. I come up and gasp for air. I'm sure my Master swim coach gets a chuckle or two. Alison and I say, "We act like we are in kindergarten." That's because I am in the swim learning category. I know this, but keep chugging along and practicing.
  2. One big thing that is going to be different is that I cannot or will not know the course. So, this will be a blindspot for me, unless I plan a trip to Mont-Tremblant for a weekend ride, run and swim in the sprint. 
  3. Even though I already did one Ironman, I need to think of this as a new experience and build on what I learned.
  4. Everything takes a focused plan. It takes discipline. Step back and see what you are doing each day. Then focus on the adjusted plan, daily. Make sure you are doing the new things you plan in. Make yourself accountable.
  5. Don’t give up.You need to take the time to make the plan, and I did just that, set time aside to plan for the coming months.
  6. Stop comparing with everyone else (see Ironman Training story). You can NEVER compare yourself to others. This is an unfair and unrealistic way to progress. The only comparison is with your older, slower self. 
  7. Keep going. Be humble. 
  8. Fatiguing and trying to go fast will not make me a better swimmer. Taking drills slowly and try to learn as you swim them will make you a better swimmer.
  9. You can do this. You just gotta believe in yourself. JUST DO IT! Another recurring theme. Just Do It! For those things I am having a hard time getting back into, particularly my daily biking and running, I need to track them and make myself accountable. Put a BIG FAT X on the calendar box every day when I do it. 
  10. It is workable. Things will get in the way, and they will be important things. Honor those things, take time for those important things. Fit the IMMT training into and around it. 
  11. It’s your choice, practice focus and appreciate where you are at. Break it up in daily chunks, commit to the goal, do it daily. 
  12. Diet, fitness, sleep, happiness and connection - these things are essential, and get you 80-95% of the way to “optimal performance”, not just in my ironman training but in life too. And too hit that 100% mark, find those few “ ecret weapons" to really hit 100%. It takes a while to get there. 
  13. Some days are not going to be better than yesterday, but intend to be better tomorrow than you are today. 
  14. It’s all about endurance. I’m doing two big things in my life right now, one is trying to get my MOJO back for training daily and two is studying for taking the PMP. Both require lots and lots of crazy endurance. I can do this. 
  15. Consistency beats inspiration. The best way — the only way — is to get good work done, show up every day. Establish consistency!

My Athletic Resume: Marathons & Triathlons

Kim has been involved with sports since she first started running in 1982.  Taking part in her first cross-country race, she was a member of the first ladies team in high school cross-country. Her first Triathlon was the Milwaukee Triathlon in 1985, which she completed in a Swim Suit, no wetsuit, and an old Ten-Speed Bike. From there she got the running bug and the rest is history. Kim continued staying healthy as she was busy raising her daughter, and taught water-aerobics from 1990-2005. 

In 2002, Kim completed her first Marathon, the Madison MarathonAs her passion for running and competing developed, she looked for more challenging opportunities, and discovered Half 2 Run, a group who supports people to run a half marathon in 25 states. Taking part in her first half in 2001 and then outside of the state, in Indiana, in 2007. Kim  picked up the pace and ran a half marathon in every state each weekend until April 2009, when her goal was complete. She continues to run in the remaining states, having only two  more out of the 50 states to go.


In 2010, Kim tore her ACL in a ski accident and learned to bounce back, she was determined to continue, so that she too would not lose momentum. As she healed, Kim tirelessly mentored, coached and inspired individuals to grow their abilities and deepen their appreciation for the sport of running and triathlons. She approached it as a non-intimidating sport, dedicated to the pursuit of a life-long, health focused endeavor to fit in a persons lifestyle. The overall goal is to foster the sport at all levels.
Kim still had a burning passion for marathons, to be a big part of something more. Back at it in 2012, she ran over 15 half marathons. It wasn't long before
she got her speed back in her running sport. Then, determined to reach a bigger goal, the Ironman, Kim's long-time swim coach friend suggested she practice two-sided breathing. Kim realized she needed to advance in her technique and soon joined a master swim team in 2016. She started competing in more Triathlons, the Wisconsin Triathlon series in 2017.


Groshek has completed over 150+ runs and triathlons of all distances, including many full and over one-hundred lifetime half marathons. She even competed in the IRONMAN Wisconsin in Madison in September of 2017. It was one of her most memorable races as she was able to keep with her plan.

Hot Cider Hustle Half Marathon: I knew you'd believe me...


Race Recap:
1. Waiting to book a hotel last minute is okay. Waiting for the last minute to book a hotel sometimes works great! And you might get the best hotel location with the best price. 
2. Stop an enjoy the roses. It's fun stopping along the way, walking the small town streets, chat with retail owners at the local coffee shop and meet a few patrons drinking coffee along the way.
3. Try out a small town Yoga Studio. You'd be surprised at how friendly they can be, in a warm-hometown kind of way.
4. Get some sleep. Don't fret over the small hotel room, try to sleep the best you can.
5. Don't doubt your initial research. Angelina's is an Italian restaurant. And it's good! 

Heading out for a little getaway, including a run. I pack and check things twice. I get ready for the cold weekend of plans running a half marathon. This will be my 97th lifetime half marathon that I complete. And it will be my 5th 13.1 in 2017. I do these to keep me going, to keep focused and it gives us time to get away, visit friends and explore new sites.

Road Trip. Woot!
Rainy day, but packed my weekend bag, jumped in the jeep and got on the road.

We arrive, and I check in my amazing room overlooking the bay and found this on my door. It’s a good day for a good day! Love the message, made me smile.

Unpack and layed out my flatsy for the Hot Cider Hustle. 
Pasta feed at Angelina's an amazing authentic Italian restaurant. Our hotel was close in the city, and we walked the few blocks to get there. At first we looked at the door front and almost walked by, thinking it wasn't much. But, decided to go in and to our surprise there were two levels. The greeter walked us up the stairs to our table. The food and homemade breads were delicious. The restaurant tables were full.
Ready, Set, Go!
Heading out for the Hot Cider hustle half marathon. 
Here we go!!! 🏃🏼😮👀 🏊🚴🏻🙏🏻 
I ran the Hot Cider Hustle Half marathon on Sunday. It felt good to get out and run. It was so much fun, having caramel apples and a cozy sweatshirt and hot cider in a mug they gave us at the finish. 20 degrees at the start, kept an even pace. Stopped 4 times, 2 minutes each. So, I know that I can make the average pace. I just need to work on my nutrition, the week before the race. Keep focusing on nutrition, practice makes perfect.
My Stats....
Hot Cider Hustle Half: 
Time: 2:14:13 Pace: 10:15
Overall place: 432 out of 668
Age division place: 11 out of 21
Gender place: 273 out of 472

Get up, Get motivated, Get inspired! Do something!

Agree? “I Work Best in the Mornings…But Sometimes Getting Out of Bed Is Just Too Difficult."

Choice morning, 3050 yard long swim with drills.
I look at my training holistically and ironically, I am currently studying for a major test to get certified for my job. And I am taking a course that focuses on mind mapping, which is a unique applied study approach to allow you to really absorb the materials.  So, here I am, going through the planning process for the course, and one of the assignments is to look at several areas of my life: Sleep, eating and exercise. 

Focus on Nutrition.
Eating is the area which was my biggest gap. They require that I fill out a daily eating plan, and they gave me things to learn like vitamins required for mind clarity and foods to eat and avoid. I started doing the exercises, which was to fill in the daily menus. I immediately realized this is going to take me a lot of effort because I "don't do this today." What I do, is when I'm hungry I go to the kitchen to find something to eat. Half of the times there is nothing there to make, or maybe there is but I didn't or don't have the practice to put the right foods together. Then I just grab something to fill my stomach. "Now that's not very good." It's a wonder why there are times when I just don't want to workout.  

They also told me about incorporating proteins instead of carbohydrates, especially in the mornings and reduce caffeine and alcohol. Yikes! I look back at my daily routines, and the first thing I do in the mornings is perk some of that amazingly fresh brewed coffee and have a muffin.  All of this is a no-no, if one is focused on mind clarity.

This all goes together with my Ironman training. I am good on nutrition during the training and on the course, but when off the course, I treat my stomach as a garbage disposal. Don’t really look at what nutrients I’m putting in my body.

Making the shift.
This morning, I made the shift. I got home from swim and made the following smoothy.  I will substitute milk with almond milk and other ingredients when I have better planning starting on Sunday. But, today, luckily we had a lot of cut up fresh fruits in the refrigerator from this weekends guest visits.

This is my morning breakfast.
  • 2 cups 2 % milk
  • 1/2 cup cut up strawberries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 scoop Protein powder


It was delicious and surprisingly filling.

The plan.

First, I have put a schedule together to focus daily on planning my menus. I have also set aside a menu planning time.

I'm ready to get started to redesign my kitchen to match my new nutrition plan for the Ironman.  I plan to  create a display board in the kitchen that will show the menu for the day. This will give me specific focus and make sure that I am proactively eating good foods.

I plan to create a spreadsheet journal to better track what I am eating and portions to help me be more observant and plan for better nutrition.

I'm on the right track.

You can do this as well. 
You just gotta believe in yourself 
JUST DO IT!
See you at the finish line!

Train wisely, and injury free.
Keep swimming, cycling and running.
Improve on bike and run in the Ironman.
Build muscle and strength.

Ironman Mont-Tremblant: Use Your Words

"Sometimes you have to take a step back from everyone else and just focus on yourself.”

Recap:
1. Everything takes a focused plan.
2. You need to take the time to make the plan, and I did just that, set time aside to plan for the coming months.
3. Stop comparing with everyone else (see Ironman Training story).

I promised to get my act together and start organizing myself once again to prepare for Ironman training. I have to say, I got off track, with a lot! I need to refocus, replan and get my act together. 

It could be because I’m pretty tough on myself. Or it has to do with the change in seasons. That always gets me. 

Here are my stories and details of my week.

Ironman Training:
I promised myself I would get in the pool at least 5 days this week. I took Monday off entirely and Wednesday I only did Yoga. I felt faint doing yoga both Tuesday and Wednesday. Not sure what’s going on, probably not enough H20; but, making a note of that as I plan out and adjust my daily nutrition plan.

I’m starting to get some pressure from the morning group, those who go to open swim on my 'choice days'!  I swim open morning swim on Mondays and Fridays and choice means, I can choose what I do and not have someone tell me what to do, they are really my choice. 

So, there are these guys who show up at the pool, and they are always asking if I want race sets of 100's or 50's, or else they want me to stop and talk with them.  

This gets me a little frustrated. Because I only have 1 1/2 hours in the morning for swim and have to fit in my other stuff, which is just as important, my meditation, my run on the trail and my ME time to just do nothing for atlas 30 minutes in the morning.  I’m working through this and “Using my Words", as I use to tell my daughter when she was little. This gets me all caught up, if I don't I start telling the stories in my head. And believe me, I'm a GOOD story teller. Which always creates anxiety for me.

And then, Thursday morning, at Master, I had a very emotional swim. I'm not sure what's going on with me. 

First, I wake up and was talking myself out of going. Then, of course, I get to the pool and while swimming in the lane with a swimming buddy who qualified for Kona (2018) at IMWI 2017 this year, FAST. And in the lane next to me are two ladies, one of whom was swimming since she was 5 and both pretty much have the same pace. FAST! 

We did backstroke drills today. 2nd worse stroke. I swim as I watch both sides pass me probably 10 times. I'm behind. 

My coach says, "Do you want to skip this set?" 

I said, "No." 

He wanted to catch me up. I think his intention was there but I want to keep up with the rest. 

On the second last swim set, I stopped, pulled my goggles off  and said, almost choking back tears, "I'm Slow." 

My coach crouched down and told me "You aren't slow." 

I didn't believe him.

I put my goggled back on, with tears welling up in my eyes flopped back in the water, to continue the last group of swimming sets. 

After my sets, I told him that, "You say I'm not slow, but, I am slow. I'm slower than the rest of these swimmers". 

He told me, "You've come a long way since you started." 

Frustrated, I stopped, thought about it, didn't make sense, then I went to swim a few more laps. 

I was disappointed with myself. 
I wasn't going fast, or as fast as I thought I should go. 

I know you can NEVER compare yourself to others. This is an unfair and unrealistic way to progress. 

The only comparison is with your older, slower self. So, I need to keep going. 

I also know that it is VERY hard to keep up on the non-free strokes with seasoned swimmers who have trained since kids. 

Be humble. It's ok. 

Fatiguing and trying to go fast will not make me a better swimmer. 

Taking drills slowly and trying to learn as you swim them will make you a better swimmer. 

I know I did great for where I am today.  

Ironically, when I came home there was a fresh muffin my favorite guy got from the bakery for me. He didn’t even know I was struggling.  These little gestures mean a lot, gestures like this are more worthy than any expensive gift.

So, I have created a plan, nutrition and workout. I will start adding bike and run to my schedule starting this week.

Planning for my next Ironman in Canada:
I scheduled our suite for the Ironman Mont-Tremblant, it is at a resort in the mountains of Quebec, walking distance from the swim start. We plan to drive up to Canada. It’s about a day drive and we will stay 1 week over the weekend. I can’t wait. A perfect place to compete and rest and relax and view the scenery. 

I haven’t been to Quebec other than driving through it home from St. John’s, my mom daughter 2 week trip driving to the East Coast through Ohio and Pensylvania and then up to Canada, and through Niagara Falls through Michigan and back, in 2010. 

That was such a fun trip, we toured Hershey factory, walked Martha’s Vinyard and the islands on the East coast, toured Boston, Maryland, relaxed in Maine and stayed with my friend at the town she grew up, staying at her mom’s home, in Canada. It is always an adventure carving out mom/daughter trips. I treasure them and the stories last a lifetime and beyond.

As far as my training goes, I will run a fun run this weekend. The Hot Cider Hustle. Perfect for this time of year and perfect theme for the weather.

You can do this as well. 
You just gotta believe in yourself 
JUST DO IT!

See you at the finish line!


Train wisely, and injury free.
Keep swimming, cycling and running.
Improve on bike and run in the Ironman.
Build muscle and strength.
