One day of good temps.. and then winter is back again. Mother Nature teased us 😉
When you get both of your swims for the week in bc you are obsessed with your new swim suits 😂 🏊🏼♀️ 1700 yards yesterday and 1500 today both at 1:25/100 yd pace! Been contemplating signing up for a masters meet coming up. Been itching to compete again 🤷🏼♀️But first I have a half tomorrow that I keep forgetting about! #swimday#swimming
Three of my favourite things all in this photo:
1. Sitting on the back of my Nav!
2. The beach
I’m so easy to please, I love parking up somewhere with a view and hanging out on the tailgate.
After a weekend a way watching @brendan_summerlandhealth do the @tweed_enduro_tri I’m keen to get home and do a solid few days of training before we set off on our honeymoon 🥂

How much further coach? .
Kona is the sweetest 💚. She sleeps next to me when I’m on the bike and comes over to say hello after every run. Worked up a good sweat today (as you can see) 1hr40 on the indoor trainer. Slowly but surely getting there 🚴🏼♀️💦🚴🏼♀️💦🚴🏼♀️💦

So apparently one glove really liked that long run, the other - not so much!
"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new." — Socrates
From day one I was never focused on not drinking. I was focusing on having a life, one that I had denied myself. I did not know what it would be. Not Drinking would be a way to enable my new life
The first 90 days, I treated like I was in intensive care and focussed building healthy routines to support my recovery! It wasn’t about getting my old life back it was about a new one!
My old life lead me to drinking uncontrollably and lead me to attempting to take my own life, I was selfish and hurt people
In my new life I could be anything, do anything. I would value it above all others and do anything to protect it.
Today this life is one of my biggest barriers to ever picking up a drink.
What I love about this video is that I look like I'm swimming super fast as I battle the waves near the 🦆! He's just riding the current I might be just staying in the same place🦆😂 #triathlontraining#openwaterswim#muscat70. 3
Already planning out my week🤔
Got all my training done for today, still have tomorrow’s trail run left and then next week I start hitting all 3 #swimbikerun and prep officially starts🙌🏼
My week will usually consist of 5-7 hrs of swim/bike and run working on what needs to be addressed at the time following the 80/20 principles.
Since I love lifting, I’ll keep doing that but taper off a bit on the volume and length of my training sessions to something like this:
Monday: met-con style workout (45 [email protected] to 155 bpm)HIIT.
Tuesday: chest/shoulder/tri- 3 sets , 3 movements each ,6-8 rep range (30-35 min)
Wednesday: Squat focus (just squat for 30 mins , adding hamstring work too)
Thursday: another met-con style workout for 45 mins.
Friday: Back and biceps with some DEADLIFTS 🙌🏼 same short 30-35 mins sessions.
Saturday: check journal, assess recovery and make the changes needed to it.
Still need to lose more weight but slow and steady wins the race so no hurry🙌🏼 Goal is 195 lbs
Currently at 214.
Started at 228 lbs

Swim 🏊♀️analysis today with my coach @themaryeggers ! And that's her husband and coaching partner and AV guy Curt! 😁Learned that my left arm crosses over and worked on making that adjustment. I'm excited to see the underwater videos and analysis! The last time I got any real feedback on my form was in high school. I've video taped myself and have studied videos on good form and made some adjustments over the past year. But having someone with expert knowledge give feedback is really great. You're never too old to learn!! .
I've been into sports since the moment I could walk. After some serious injuries in football, I switched to no-contact sports & ended up running & biking. 6 years ago, it was a colleague at work who was organizing a small, local Olympic-distance Triathlon, & he invited all of us for the event. I thought, "why not?" So I just gave it a try. But after I ended up finishing 3rd in my AG that day - I was hooked. I had found something I could become really passionate about again.
I soon realized that my strengths are in the longer distances, so I did my first 70.3 in Zell 2015, where the WC was held on the same weekend. I was so fascinated by that event, I almost couldn't enjoy my own race day because I wanted to see the best in the world the next day. It was unreal for me, at that moment, to even think that I could be part of the WC at some point.
Now, a few years later, I’m still fully into Triathlon. It just gives me so much energy! And I use it as the perfect counterpart to my office job - where I'm not moving at all throughout the day. I can reboot my systems within minutes of training, & I’m fresh at work again.
However, as a really competitive human being, I challenged myself over the years from season to season & my old memories came back last year, & I noticed that I really could do it on a perfect day. I could become part of the Worlds. So the project was born – #RoadToNice2019. I want to start at the World Champs once in my life. At Bahrain last year in December, I launched my first serious attempt, where I ended up 10th with a total time of 4:29.
At the slot allocation, I needed to face life the hard way when I was the first in my AG to not get a coin for Nice. And the guy who placed 9th was in front of me by only 43 seconds!
That moment was a huge setback, but I told myself that - it must not make you stop chasing your dreams. I'm still on my mission, I’m still burning for Nice, & I know I can do it! So can you! Go out & prove the naysayers wrong! ~ Patrick Sibetz [@pat.sibi]
