trijaxxon7 I love Triathlon because there is no faking your way through it. The timing chip is going to show what you did to prepare. To be honest, these two sections of St. George killed me last year. I wasn't ready! I gassed up Snow Canyon and started to cramp right here on the run. It was over at this point! The fun was gone and it was either gut out a finish or take a DNF. Of course, that wasn't happening! This time around is going to be different, that I promise! I am not a star triathlete, but I've been giving it a star effort throughout this training process and I really believe it's going to make a huge difference in 5 weeks.. I can't wait!! 3w

trijaxxon7 If you are racing St. George 70.3, get your hill work in. This is Snow Canyon and it comes towards the end of your bike leg. Enjoy!! 3w
  •   bturtle67 Thank you for the advice @moore.miles really that's all I've been doing @trijaxxon7 do you live there? 3w
  •   trijaxxon7 @bturtle67 no, I live in SLC, was down there for work. Snuck in some training.. @moore.miles it killed me last year as well.. Actually, I cramped up towards the end of the bike and that made it even more of a nightmare.. Excited for this year! 3w
  •   moore.miles @bturtle67 you'll be so ready 3w
  •   stace_a_racer @trijaxxon7 I'm pregnant and decided I should skip it this year. It makes me sad, but it'll motivate me to get back into racing shape and do it again next year! 3w
  •   bturtle67 @moore.miles @trijaxxon7 is the run a steady incline or are there a bunch of steep climbs? 3w
  •   moore.miles @bturtle67 BOTH! That's what makes it so hard . I found it so hard to get in a groove. Literally the minute I would get "comfortable", the terrain would change. It goes straight uphill at about mile 3 on the run and stays steady then throws in a few rolling hills and dirt roads . There is no shade so be prepared! 3w
  •   bturtle67 @moore.miles Thanx for the info. It sounds like hell. My legs can't wait lol 3w
  •   losjohnstons @dghicken get ready! 3w

triandrungirl A Glorious 60 mile bike ride and a 4 mile run on the St. George Ironman course today with my hubby! The weather was perfect ️🚴 and we had a blast! I'm not the fastest or most confident biker on the course by far but today I felt strong riding and that made me happy! All the training pays off. all the long days = worth it. My little bike is great and I'm feeling ready to rock Ironman on May 2nd! #IronmanTraining #StGeorgeIronman #Ironman703 #IronmanStGeorge #IronmanSTG #Triathlete #Tri #TriGirl #TriathletesRock #CommitToTri #Top_Triathletes #TriLife #TriHood #FurtherFasterForever #F3 #roadtoironman #roadcycle #ironmantriathlon #ironmantri #cycling #cycle #swimbikerun #TheTriHub 4w
  •   tinasiebert @ironmandaveisback thank you! I'm counting down the days... 😀 3w
  •   triandrungirl @ironmandaveisback crazy hard 140.6! Awesome work! @tinasiebert Dave is right on! It's a challenging course for sure! Lots of hills but very beautiful too! And agree, save it for the run! 4 miles up hill after a hilly 56 mile bike ride is tough, but doable. It's a huge feeling of accomplishment to cross that finish line though! We should totally meet up!! :) 3w
  •   tinasiebert @triandrungirl awesome! Thank you! I do believe 'patients' will be my mantra for that day. I will reach out to you when i get out there and see what we can do about meeting up. Looking forward to it! 3w
  •   triandrungirl @tinasiebert yes! Would love that!! Good luck girl!! Are you in Utah too? 3w
  •   tinasiebert No, I'm in CO. 3w
  •   triandrungirl @tinasiebert let me know when you're headed to Utah ! You will rock it! 3w
  •   hungryrunnergirl So fun!!!!! Nailed it girl! 3w
  •   bretriggin.rr How is the bike course?! Doing my first half Ironman in st george may 2nd! 3w

triandrungirl 4,200 yard swim today for #IronmanTraining and had a little fun with my Go Pro in the water cause, why not!? I usually run everyday but decided I need a day break from the pounding and a good full swim day! That's the full ironman distance of 2.4 miles so it was a good one! As a swimmer turned triathlete/runner, I want to inspire others to take the "PLUNGE" and get in the water and not be afraid of it! If you have any questions let me know! If be happy to help you! I also do swim/TRI coaching. 🚴 #triathlete #swimmer #swimbikerun #ironmantri #ironman #stgironman #ironmanstgeorge #furtherfasterforever #f3 #swimswam #tri #trigirl #committotri #swim #likeagirl #swimspiration #swimspire #top_triathletes #justkeepswimming #fitnessvideo #fitness @gopro #gopro #goprogirl 1mon
  •   runwithtara Thanks for the tag. I swam competitively for 7 years growing up in SC, and coached age group for 8. Swimming is in my blood. The sound of a lane line wrench clicking is one I can never hear too much. Happy pool time. 3w

branditriandrun Lately I have been needing a distraction. The first two things to pop into my head were IM St. George and the Utah Valley Marathon, and now I think they are stuck there. I'm trying to decide if missing out on 8 weeks of training should stop me from racing, but I think I'm going to go for it! These are two races always on my radar so I'm excited to put in the work for them! Anyone else doing them? 1mon

triandrungirl We may be sweet blonde girls that love the color pink, but you better believe that with Ironman Training underway, we will be fierce and kill our workouts! @sweat4sweets Ashley and I had a great swim session with some speed drills in the mix. So glad to have awesome friends that will swim with me (and chat)! Ash rocked those 4 by 100's and 5 by 50 yard sprints sets we threw in our 2,100 yard set! I love the calmness of the water. Still got a great workout in but a recovery week ahead of me from running. #ironmantraining #ironman #ironmanstgeorge #ironman70point3 #ironman703 #ironmanstg #TheTriHood #themermaidclub #committotri #tri #triathlete #triathlon #top_triathletes #ironmantri 3mon
