The Sunday Report

Another week is gone.  This was another toughie, mostly because of the crazy weather we have been having in Syracuse.  On Tuesday, it took me 2.5 hours to get to Ithaca - a drive that would normally take me 1.5 hours.  Tuesday night we were all prepared for the apocalypse.  Schools were cancelled or delayed (including Ithaca college which was delayed until 12) because of the ice.  I ventured out in Ithaca around 10...and the roads were fine.

Then last night I turned around after 15 miles because it was just too dangerous to be on the road.  I try really hard to not complain about the weather because complaining never helps it go away.  I live in a place that is going to get snow and a lot of it, so I try really hard to embrace it.  It's just when it starts to get in the way of regular and safe driving, I start to long for spring.  And when I say long, I mean counting down the days.  Of course, in Syracuse it could snow in May, so you never really know.

If you haven't read about our snowboarding adventures from yesterday click on over here.  The pictures alone are worth it.

My flute quartet, Dolce Flutes, was recently featured in a new publication called Syracuse Woman Magazine. You can read the article here on page 16.  Since I don't write too often at Trimommylife about my work as a flutist, I thought some of you might like to check it out.

And training.  Coach Mary keeps gently reminding me that I am currently training for an olympic distance race (Rev3Tri Quassy - don't miss out!), so it's okay that I'm not doing huge volumes of training right now.  I know this, but I still feel like I should be doing more.  Although, I say I want more, I still didn't hit 100% of my workouts, so maybe I should just shut my mouth and get the work I'm supposed to do done.  Hmmm...novel idea!

Here are the numbers:

(A): 9:11:04
Swim:  1h 44m 5300 yds
Bike:  5h 4m 57s 71.79 mi on the trainer
Run: 1h 32m 7s 9.43 mi mostly outside - I embrace winter...
TRX/Movement Prep: 50m

Total:  9h 11m 04s

Be sure to enter my RoadID Giveaway if you haven't already!  I will choose a winner tomorrow.  Also stay tuned this week for another review and giveaway.  Have a wonderful week!


  1. you know, if Syracuse had some sort of social/gossip column, I think you would appear in it regularly...because of all the various things you have going on : )

  2. Great job Kelly... I kind of giggled about you not feeling like you are doing high mileage stuff. I had a really bad week in terms of time and I have a half in May! You're going to rock Quassy!

  3. I was born and rainsed outside of Jamestown, NY and have family around Jamestown, Rochester, and Albany. I know what you mean when you talk about Upstate New York winters!! It sure doesn't make for the most convenient triathlon training, does it?

    I'm in CT now and I don't have it any better here. But keep it up!

  4. I don't like the snow either and I am counting the days until spring. Right now the number is too high!

  5. I too am longing for spring. I can handle the colder temperatures; I'm just sick of the snow, freezing rain, and ice.

  6. Oooh, I know how you feel. I hit the wall on Friday with winter. Splurged on some fresh flowers and hit a hot yoga class. It helped! Hang in there!

  7. We just got 6 more " and you know...I love the snow. I really do. But it makes training hard! And driving...Fresh flowers brightened my mood.


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
