New TTL episode is up (a bit of a mixed bag as Eric needed a break from filming this week) - and new bottles are now available on thattriathlonlife.com (you can never have too many) ๐Ÿ˜‹ @that.triathlonlife link in bio.

โ€œSooo, one more before one more?โ€ The only words Eric spoke to me during our ride yesterday with 2 reps to go... which made me laugh uncontrollably and reminded me that itโ€™s just training and I donโ€™t need to take every session so seriously especially when Iโ€™m exhausted. #DYJ #thecountdown #6x4 #thattriathlonlife #thisisfunright

Left the dogs in the yard unsupervised while we went running. Moderately risky but highly successful. #GOODDOGS ๐Ÿ˜‡ ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Calm before the tempo run. (New @that.triathlonlife bottles coming ๐Ÿ”œ ๐Ÿ‘€) ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

The new St George training loop. Hilly โ›ฐ and windy ๐Ÿ’จ trying to hang on @eric_lagerstrom wheel.

Very productive last 30 seconds in the win tunnel ๐Ÿ˜‰ link in bio for full video. @iamspecialized_tri

Faster than yesterday. @iamspecialized_tri Big thanks to everyone at Specialized for making this happen. Truly an invaluable experience. Lots more in Sundayโ€™s video ๐Ÿ™‚

Long term parking less than 100 steps from the terminal ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ not going to a race but bringing a bike... any guesses? #aeroiseverything

Max effort bike intervals and max effort chuck-it session, so this is where youโ€™ll find us.

Golden hour ride โœจ always happiest on a road bike. ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Back to my natural habitat (freezing cold and not humid) ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Sometimes youโ€™re the hammer and sometimes youโ€™re the nail. Not my finest showing yesterday, struggled big time in the heat and lacking some fitness early in the season. I knew in the back of my mind that I wasnโ€™t really ready to race, but couldnโ€™t turn down another NASCAR track ๐Ÿ˜œ Looking forward to settling into consistent training in Bend, getting to the wind tunnel with @iamspecialized_tri in a few weeks (I heard you, bike fit experts ๐Ÿ˜›) and being better in St George. Thanks for the support, it means the most on the tough days! And thanks to Bill and @challengefamily for an awesome race. So happy for @jodiestimpson, nobody more deserving ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ“ธ @theewynn //@talbotcox

Back to the races ๐Ÿ this track isnโ€™t anything like Daytona (4 sharp turns per lap & crazy winds) but Iโ€™m excited for the challenge (I think ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) ๐Ÿ“ธ @theewynn

Iโ€™m so excited that the gels Iโ€™ve been using exclusively for training & racing over the last few years are now an official partner ๐Ÿ @endurance_tap has 3 ingredients: Canadian maple syrup, sea salt & ginger. Iโ€™ve always struggled with taking in calories while racing, but these taste so good that I actually look forward to eating them ๐Ÿ˜‚ and they sit well in my stomach, made from ingredients that I eat all the time anyway. Stoked to be a part of this awesome Canadian company ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿฅž #endurancetap #ohcanada

Thinking about packing my TT bike for tomorrowโ€™s 6am flight... ๐Ÿ˜’ Just kidding I am very excited & grateful to be racing on Friday ๐Ÿค— #letsgo

Very nice Saturday โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜ @eric_lagerstrom

3 hour brick of death โ˜ ๏ธ -> straight into filming Ericโ€™s run ๐ŸŽฅ. Vlogging is a real team effort ๐Ÿ˜œ #thattriathlonlife #iamspecialized

Tempo run paradise: clear roads, blue sky ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom
