Running a marathon is an extraordinary accomplishment that more and more people are checking off of their bucket lists every year. I have completed a few, but I'm no more special than anyone. In fact, I think I'm just ordinary.

Tapering is underway and yesterday was a perfect, productive beginning – upper body strength training, short swim, dealing with Ellie screaming in the pool (which had to burn SOME calories), and a short, easy bike. Things are on track and with 12 days remaining until Ironman Lake Placid, I just have to make sure I … Continue reading "Podcast #257 – Ordinary Daily, July 16, 2019" The post Podcast #257 – Ordinary Daily, July 16, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

And now, we taper. Hope everyone had a great weekend of training. My last weekend before IMLP was pretty successful. Maybe would have liked to get some extra miles in on Saturday (did 12.5) but that was in the range of what I had planned to get done anyway. Sunday’s 65-mile bike ride was a … Continue reading "Podcast #256 – Ordinary Daily, July 15, 2019" The post Podcast #256 – Ordinary Daily, July 15, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

After hearing the story of how Sheila Treleaven, a mother of 3 with a full-time job, somehow is able to fit in enough training to be a professional triathlete, I struggled a bit with my own personal excuses I’ve made over the past few weeks. This morning I saw a couple running in the rain … Continue reading "Podcast #255 – Ordinary Daily, July 12, 2019" The post Podcast #255 – Ordinary Daily, July 12, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

With 17 days remaining until Ironman Lake Placid, my workouts aren’t looking very Ironman-like. At least I got something done yesterday, even though it was late at night and I would have rather been in bed. My problem lately? Setting a routine and sticking to it, without getting sidetracked. Yesterday, I banged out 4+ miles … Continue reading "Podcast #254 – Ordinary Daily, July 11, 2019" The post Podcast #254 – Ordinary Daily, July 11, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

It’s not often we get a pro-triathlete on the podcast. But, as luck would have it, I ran into one at the start of Ironman Mont-Tremblant a few weeks ago. A little facebook stalking followed by a polite request and whaddya know! We got Sheila Treleaven on the podcast! We talk about Sheila’s transition from … Continue reading "Podcast #253 – Sheila Treleaven" The post Podcast #253 – Sheila Treleaven appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Tuesdays are supposed to be boring… Mine started out fairly benign, though my lack of consistency with strength training is evident in the results. Then we dealt with Boston traffic – NIGHTMARE! After all those curse words uttered on the Mass Pike, I then had to get back to my happy-place and we recorded a … Continue reading "Podcast #252 – Ordinary Daily, July 10, 2019" The post Podcast #252 – Ordinary Daily, July 10, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time… with an overload of things to do and tasks to accomplish over the next few weeks, it’s time for me to start nibbling at that elephant. Even though it’s merely at the “vague idea” stage, thanks to everyone who supported the Team Ordinary concept … Continue reading "Podcast #251 – Ordinary Daily, July 9, 2019" The post Podcast #251 – Ordinary Daily, July 9, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

We wanted to make episode #250 a bit special, but some personal things got in the way with the recent passing of my father-in-law. I’ll discuss the things I will remember about him and the lessons I will take from an incredibly interesting and adventurous spirit. I will also announce the upcoming creation of Team … Continue reading "Podcast #250 – Ordinary Daily, July 8, 2019" The post Podcast #250 – Ordinary Daily, July 8, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July. It’s been difficult for me to get time to train lately, but I’m doing it the best I can with the recent crazy schedule. Hopefully, I’m not losing fitness in the process and will still be good to go in 23 days!

Don’t mistake my overly-concerned tone for a lack of confidence. For me, it seems natural to overly-analyze as many aspects of a race like Ironman as I can imagine. I want to be prepared for everything, so I think of all that can go wrong and then I tend to discuss it all on the … Continue reading "Podcast #248 – Ordinary Daily, July 3, 2019" The post Podcast #248 – Ordinary Daily, July 3, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

26 days left until Ironman and the reality of what is coming my way… PAIN. I’m starting to think about race day and prep myself for how to deal with adversity. Also, I told Stefany about my uncomfortable flight home from Phoenix, and she said I should NOT mention it on the podcast.

Back from Tempe, Arizona and the USA Triathlon Coaching Certification Clinic.

Some dark mojo… Sometimes bad things happen, but then they have a good side. This is especially nice when the good part happens to me and the bad part happens to someone else.

It’s so great to meet talented creators in our own backyard. Christina Uss toured the country on her bicycle and then decided to write a book about it. Only she didn’t take the normal path of writing a biographical account of it all. She chose to write a fiction book for young adults called “The … Continue reading "Podcast #240 – Christina Uss"
