Aerobic pace run, starting inning humid 94F, through a thunderstorm, finishing in 84F sunshine. Heart rate was lower than I would’ve liked at 143, will aim to have it closer to 150 on these types of runs in the future. This run was meant to be yesterday, and the recovery today, so tomorrow’s 12 miles could be tough!

11 aerobic miles for day 1 of the training plan. Aimed to stay in the low-mid 140s, but every time I checked my watch it was in the mid 130s. Felt fatigued due to the travel, and also a late night at a wedding last night, but other than that I was feeling good. .

My first outdoor 🚴🏻‍♀️ training ride! Rode @zagsterbikeshare around #salemlake - it was humbling to see how tired my legs got on those hills, but I know I’ll get better with practice😊. Loved the beauty all around me and am so excited for our next bike tour with @biketoursdotcom - it’s a lovely way to really experience a country. #czechrepublic here we come! #whyibiketour #biketour #trainingride🚴🏻‍♀️ #womenwhotravel #womenwhoexplore #travelblogger #girlstrip #lovemy🚴🏻‍♀️buddies #Prague #czechrepublic🇨🇿

Feels great to ride again ✨🚴🏻‍♀️...About a month ago, I injured my ankle . And within a week, I re-injured it. Leaving me unable to run and to continue my training for the race that’s quickly coming up this Saturday! Tbh, it emotionally affected me more than what I allowed people to see. .
Those who are closest to me know that I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) at an early age. It’s a connective tissue disorder and includes multiple subtypes. Connective tissue is what the body uses to provide strength and elasticity; normal connective tissue holds strong proteins that allow tissue to be stretched but not beyond its limit, and then safely return that tissue to normal.
.
My issues are mostly with my joints; meaning that my tendons and ligaments do not “bounce back” as they should and make my joints more unstable and injury-prone. This is why injuring my ankle really set me back. .
But! I am not going to let this stop me from doing the race anyway...I know I won’t perform my best , but I am determined to finish it and that’s a promise 👍🏼☺️ #roadbike #tri #trihard #tritraining #triathlete #triathleteintraining #aspiringtriathlete #roadbikelife #cyclist #cycling #cyclelove #cyclelife #cyclingadventures #swimbikerun #sprinttriathlon #sprinttri #trainingday #cardio #explorenc #outdoors #cyclinglife #sprinttritraining

My only goal yesterday was to wrap up three books I had in progress, and I did it! The Changeling was the second one (after my triumphant conclusion of Middlemarch). I finished it in the late afternoon, on a series of park benches and while walking along the greenway between the park and my neighborhood.

(Side note: does anyone else read while walking? It takes some getting used to, and the right book to hold comfortably in your hand as you move, but once you have the hang of it, it’s kind of great.)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was my book club’s pick for the month; I went in blind and was SO surprised and delighted (in the darkest, most twisted way, to clarify). This story is based on folklore—a changeling often refers to a fairy child (or some “other”) left in the place of a human child who has been stolen by fairies, gods, creatures of the underworld, etc. I was familiar with that term, but when this book started out normally enough, I let it drift to the back of my mind. And then things got weird. What at first read like literary fiction about a relatively typical family quickly took on elements of suspense, horror, and the supernatural/mythical. I was surprised, scared, disgusted, and completely engrossed. Y’all. I was gasping aloud in a public park. Multiple times. I loved what LaValle did to update and modernize the well-established trope of the changeling. So interesting, and unsettling, and well-written.

I highly recommend this one, and also suggest reading it in the safety of daylight. 😂

Was feeling quite stressed today, much to the concern of a few of my classmates, who are used to me being much more relaxed. A little afternoon jog in the sun and wind helped to ease the tension as I look ahead to a weekend of studying. 👟: @altrarunning One v3
