🚴🏼 > 🏃🏼🤙
Solid brick session this morning 👊. Love getting out on the country roads for a spin!
Just over a week until @eliteenergy_au#bighusky... time to sharpen up and dial it in 😜.
Good luck to all those racing tomorrow at #imgeelong703 🏊🏼♂️🚴🏼🏃🏼💨.
I wasn’t planning on a #flexfriday post. .
But here we are. 💪🏼
I didn’t even manage to get a workout in (though I’m dressed for one if an opportunity arises!) But since we’re closing out our 5 day #selflove bootcamp today, it made think back and reflect on the changes that fitness has made on my life and how it was the first show of self love to myself. •
Sure my abs made a pretty clear appearance but more so, what you can’t see, is my ability to love more richly because I was taking the time to take care of ME. •
My confidence, energy, mood and my posture also benefited. Can ya tell? 😃
So take it from a “skinny” girl, that girl in the top left was thin but anything but fit. She was winded at taking a flight of stairs and couldn’t run a mile. That was early 2009. •
By Spring Break that SAME year, the girl in the top right was 85% thru completing #P90X and feeling weird about flexing for a pic (especially in a bikini - cringe!) •
That was the early stages of learning what sticking to a workout program can do. •
The bottom photos are after finishing #80dayobsession in the Spring of 2018 and the other 2 after #liift4 in the Fall of 2018. •
So, I’m 10 years older on the bottom row and have 2 more kids than I did in the top row and clearly have no issue with my flex. 🤣
My vote is for the older, wiser girl. But don’t forget, it’s not just about how you LOOK. It’s more about how you feel and how healthy you are!!
These programs are legit and getting the nutrition dialed in with a peer group is so valuable! ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️ I’m opening 15 spots in my March Bootcamp right now. Here’s what you’ll get:
⭐️ 6 weeks
⭐️ 20 minute workouts!!!
⭐️ Weekly menus and shopping lists ⭐️ Daily accountability and encouragement!
⭐️ Love, acceptance, fun, and prizes! 🎉🎉🎉 Comment below with a 💪🏼 and I’ll get you signed up!❤️ What a great gift to YOURSELF!
🤪 2x(4x800m) 🤪
Quoi de mieux qu’une bonne séance de fractionné ou tu sors un peu de ta zone de confort 🤔
Du coup, deux séries de quatre fois 800m à faire en 2’54“ 🤙🏼
Bon ça c’est ce qui était prévu, j’avoue les avoir fait un peu plus vite 😅
En tout cas bonnes sensations, ça promet pour les prochaines courses 🤙🏼
Research shows that sustainable progress, in everything from diet to fitness to creativity, isn’t about being consistently great; it’s about being great at being consistent.
It’s about being good enough over and over and over and over again.
Nothing wrong with being good enough!

At the beginning of my senior year at USC, I had this crazy dream of running a half marathon. A friend of mine recommended I join the Triathlon club so I could train with other people - an even crazier idea. I didn't own a bike, and I didn't even know how to swim (I failed a swim test at Girl Scout Camp probably over 10 summers ago, and I swore to never embarrass myself by returning to a pool ever again). But it was my last year before I entered the real world, and I wanted to go out with a bang - and I sure as hell did NOT want to join the marathon club.
Fast forward two and a half years later, I have completed close to 15 Triathlons. I competed in Collegiate Nationals 2017 and placed 1st in my age group at a couple sprint races. My goal was to finish Ironman 70.3 Gulf Coast in under 6:30. I was ecstatic to finish in 8:12 after getting stung by jellyfish, getting 2 flat tires, and having a stomach virus for the whole week prior to race day - I went to the bathroom 8 times (EIGHT). I've also qualified for Challenge Worlds 2019, made the @WattieInk Hit Squad for next year, and became a @HoneyStinger Ambassador.
Why I TRI? I love the feeling of progress this sport has given me. I love that I can eat whatever I want knowing I'll burn it off later. I love how it's given me the confidence to do things outside of my comfort zone. But most of all, I love all of the people that have made up my Triathlon community. If it wasn't for teammates, coaches, fellow racers, ultimate queen @lucycharles93, random people I meet at the pool or on the roads, I wouldn't be nearly as inspired and humbled as I am today. ~ Monica Perez [@mangofuel]

Nothing changed 😂 The picture above is from 1937. It shows Frenchman Albert Marquet setting a motor paced speed record of 85.3 mph. (139.9 kph.) Drafting behind a Cord car that has been rigged with box like structure behind the rear bumper.
A crude fairing made of fabric appears to be tucked into the rear doors; also note the extended exhaust pipe. The event took place in Los Angeles, California; I guess traffic was a lot lighter in 1937.
The quest to be the fastest cyclist in the world began in 1899 when Charles M. Murphy rode his bike behind a train on the Long Island Railroad, at Farmingdale. He covered a measured mile in 57.8 seconds (60 mph.) and from that day became famous Nationwide, known as “Mile a Minute Murphy.” To achieve this feat, approximately three miles of wooden boards were laid between the railroad tracks to give Murphy a smooth surface to ride on. He was hauled aboard the pace coach by helpers, just before the track ran out, his feet still strapped to the pedals of his bike.
Picture below is Philippe Gilbert in the TdF, drafting behind a team car.

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]
