Snow melting away and blue skies means good winter riding here in Boulder
Funny story: @rudyprojectna sent me some sweet shades, but I thought they were only clear lenses so I asked if I could get some darker ones. Turns out they have some great new stuff that changes based on the light it’s exposed to, so they’re pretty perfect for the ever changing weather we have here. Gotta laugh at yourself sometimes. Just another reminder that everything you need is usually already right in front of you, it’s just a matter of seeing it in a different light 😂

It was a long day with some tired legs and felt like I was searching for holes in the clouds all day. But even the tough days are still good days

Tough conditions make tougher athletes 💪 enjoying the morning moonlight. Sometimes the motivation to swim faster is just to stay warm 🥶 #swimming #triathlon #boulder #winter 📸 @gholicky

Today’s #WOD
Neuromuscular Monday
Main set: 2 x through
1 min 80 rpm
1 min 100 rpm
1 min 70 rpm
1 min 110 rpm
1 min 60 rpm
1 min 120 rpm
1 min 50 rpm
1 min 130 rpm
1 min 90 rpm
3 min easy
2 x 30 sec max cadence builds
2 x 1 min max cadence holds

Everything is done at base intensity. The focus is building pedaling efficiency and increasing maximum cadence. A very important part of producing power is the velocity at which you can produce it. Here I build to about 190 rpm. My goal is to be over 200 by the end of February. There are a lot of ways to get better, and not all of them involve “going hard.” Pro tip: when pedaling at very high cadence, be generous with chamois cream 😂

❤️The Why:
Endurance has never been simple sport to us; it's a lifestyle. We live it. We breathe it. We drink it. We dream it. And we wear our obstacles and the challenges we said yes to, with pride. .
There's a kindling of spirit, when you see someone with their Ironman visor at the grocery store because we know what it took to get there. There's a secret fist pump when you sit at the stoplight behind a car with 26.2 on their back windshield. And you feel a secret I-love-you-bro-but-I'm-so-envious flash of thought when seeing bikes saddled up in a truck hugged in mud from the day's adventures.🚴‍♂️

The 2018 season has finally come to a close for me. Finished up with a 17th at the #miyazakiWC this weekend. Was definitely hoping for a lot better, but ITU racing is always an adventure. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me from family to friends to sponsors and everyone who has followed my journey. I had 17 race weekends this year, some with multiple races for a grand total of 20 times on the start line. In that I had 2 wins and 8 times up on the podium. It has definitely been the most successful year I have had yet, and has had some of the most rewarding moments so far. I am blessed to be able to chase my dream. I go into this off-season very excited for what is to come next year. Time to recharge and then prepare to achieve even greater things next year
