Jolene has been a BrittFit athlete since 2014. She recently completed her first Ironman triathlon in Arizona, and is hungry for more in 2015!
Ironman Arizona 2014! It has its own unique challenges (can you say “wind”?) and provides amazing spectator support.
-Ideal training day:
2. AM swim or strength training
3. 8-12hr workday
4. PM sprints or intervals on spin bike
On the weekends, I live for long runs and bike rides
-Racing goal for 2015:
Pushing myself, working hard and finishing as fast as I’m truly capable of. I hope to knock AT LEAST an hour off my previous full distance time of 14:54
-Favorite pre-workout snack:
I was NOT paid to say this… an apple pie Brittfit bar. It’s tasty, not heavy in my stomach and pure energy.
-Favorite recovery snack:
Protein shake with peanut butter & rolled oats
-Favorite post-race treat:
Cheeseburger, fries and a Pepsi
Ironman Mallorca (Spain)
Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae, for her athletic ability AND ambassador spirit toward age-group athletes.
I always give everything I have and never sweat a bad workout. If I have a bad day, I remember when I couldn’t do ANY of this and recognize how far I’ve come.
Even though I don’t believe it has ANY benefit, I have to eat pasta the night before a race.
peanut or almond butter? Peanut butter
coffee or tea? COFFEE
watch on your left wrist or right? Right
hat or visor? Training – visor / Race day – hat (hides the frizzies)
socks or no socks? Bike – no socks / Run – very THIN socks
morning or evening? EVENING
mountains or beach? Mountains
chocolate or cheese? Cheeeeeeeeeeese!
