Professional athlete and 3-time Ironman champion

Just When You Think You Can’t Take Anymore…..

Just when you think you can’t take any more… always seem to get more.

It’s the way it goes in Ironman training. I get to the brink and wonder how I am going to make it through not only the next workout, but the next step. And somehow, I always find a way.

This winter seems a little like that. We’ve gotten over 5 feet of snow this winter. In December, it was nice; it made things festive for the holidays. But starting with a storm on New Year’s Eve, we didn’t see the ground for the entire month of January. Snow storm, after snow storm, after snow storm.

Finally now in March, when I felt like I could see the light at the end of the tunnel; after I was teased with a few weeks of mild-ish weather (we’re talking high 30’s and low 40’s …..this is, after all, still New England), just when I thought I couldn’t take any more…..


But you know what? Just like Ironman training, you soldier on and in the end….I find I am more resilient. Hah, I say. Bring on the Compu Trainer for one more week. 15 miles on the treadmill again? Fine. Bring it. After this winter, training outside will be a breeze! So bring it on, winter.

At least someone likes the snow……
