WW-What I ACCOMPLISHed during my blog break!

Happy Wednesday All!!!

I’m back!!! How the heck has everyone been??!!??!! Missed me?

I am excited to be back writing, reading and sharing with you all!

What a great day to come back and link up with my favorite word-smith blogger friend Deb’s  for Wednesday’s Word!

Today’s word is ACCOMPLISH!


Before my blog break, I was just beginning my triathlon training. Getting outside of my comfort zone and pushing myself to improve my swim and get back ridding a bike (which I haven’t done in over 20 years!)

Every week of training, I pushed through, worked hard and accomplished a lot!


-swimming 25 m non-stop to swimming 150m non-stop;

-swimming while breathing every other breath to swimming while breathing every 4 breaths;

-feeling as if I was only good enough to swim in the rec lanes to feeling confident and comfortable  swimming in the competition lanes;

-learning how to clip into my pedals without falling off;

-riding 5 miles non-stop to riding 12 miles non-stop;

-riding on the road (boy is that scary!);

All to lead up to the biggest accomplishment……participating and completing in my 1st triathlon!!!

Where I accomplished:

-swimming in Open Water for 750m

-biking up and down hills for 15.5 miles

-running up and down hills for 3.1 miles


Guess what……I AM A TRIATHLETE!!!!


The course was hard as nails but I pushed through and accomplished it!!

I have a few things to work on to be ready to accomplish another one but I am committed and ready!

What have you accomplished lately?  What have I missed during blog break? Share with me!

I would love to stay connected:

Today’s Wednesday word is ACCOMPLISH and I am excited to share with you what I have accomplished while I was on my blog break.

    Welcome back!
    Great job on the Tri, that is awesome! You must have liked it if you are already planning to do another! That is awesome! I would like to try one one day, but for me I have a lot of swim training that needs to be done, because well to be honest just once across my pool and back pretty much do me in, LOL

    Seriously, you went from someone who didn’t swim to someone who’s a triathlete. That is awesome.

    My summer, however, not so awesome. Adopting a new dog with lots of issue, issues with the parents leading me to be away for most of this month . . . it hasn’t been fun. 😦

    I missed you! I figured you must have been busy with your Tri training. Congrats!! It’s a HUGE accomplishment. And a ton of cross training. Love those pics. I enjoyed my first one in June so much, I went ahead with 3 more. My swimming is awful! Does it matter? No! I can get from point A to B just fine. Do you have any plans to do another?

      Congrats to you!! Wow 3 more…you go girl!!

      My swimming and biking are in need of serious improvement but I wont let that deter me at all!!

      I think I will try to do one in the winter (pool) and then one in Spring and one in the Fall.
