About Me

Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

My New Best Friend


Disregard the orange hue that is resonating from the all-new Computrainer room! Now that we've returned to reality and recovered from the fantasy world of Ironman, it's time to get back to work and focus on some cycling strength and techniques! (that will no doubt help my running as well!)

The Computrainer has a 20-week Performance Improvement Guarantee Program and I'm following the specific key workouts as closely as possible, all with the intention of improving my riding skills. The easiest place to make up a lot of time in a long-course race is the bike and it hasn't been a particular strength of mine--until now.

By the time Ironman St. George rolls around next May, hubster and I will be certified mountain goats! Someone even suggested that we turn the Computrainer room into a hypoxic chamber where we can simulate altitude training by making the air thinner...

Don't tempt me...

Oooh... now I'm actually regretting not jumping in with you guys on that buy :)

Of course, knowing you, those are probably in addition to the full T3 schedule, right?

Very cool set up! Hopefully you can make a trip out to Utah before it gets cold and at least see the hills you are up against.

You know, one flies into Las Vegas to visit St. George for a long training weekend.

I'm just sayin'

Hi Carrie,

Congratulations on all your racing success. I like your blogging style too. How did you do with the CT P.I.G. program?
...and you just won a pair of CompuTrainer Racesox and a CT head band for this cool post.

Enjoy every Ride.
