5 days ago I packed my fiat and drove to the Blue Ridge Parkway for an adventure. My adventure was 5 days attending a Cycle Power Camp from Peaks Coaching Group, which was totally out of my comfort zone and exactly what I needed.
5 days was all it took to awaken a new desire and understanding on how to unleash my 2020 fitness goals as a triathlete. Along these 5 days I also met the most kind, wise, thoughtful, and endearing new friends and coaches. I feel an immense wave of happiness at this very moment. An awakening and expansion for MORE, more faith, more believing, more trusting in numbers.
I was so inspired by my journey at camp, that today, in the last hour of camp, I signed up for IRONMAN St. George, in Utah May 2020. This will be my 3rd full distance triathlon (2.4 swim, 112 bike, 26.2 run) and I am approaching this race from a complete different training strategy designed by using power and heart rate. Two metrics that I have ignored all my life which are big missing links in order for me to race completely fearless!
“A big thank you to all the coaches at Peaks Coaching Group.
Peaks Coaching Group is in the business of fulfilling dreams through numbers and connection. That is a rare human that can do both.
I cannot wait to work with you to see how far and fast I can get across that finish line. I always cross the finish line for those that can’t, like my father that killed himself… I cross it for him, and I cross it every time to feel alive and to learn more about myself. Cannot wait to cross it together with your methods of power and heart rate!
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go – TS Elliot
