Finished training some amazing athletes this AM; run home for my first run and this is the amazing beauty I'm so blessed to see/run in.. Never take anything for granted; and always see the beauty in "everything!" ##ironmantraining #ironman #mommyintrainjng #beauty #coach #hysterectomyrecovery #slowisgood
So today I'm on my long run and thinking OMG when am I going to see that pace I used to run. Then telling myself come on give yourself a break your only in the start of the 3rd week of getting "your" fitness back.....KEEP going! Then this happens a sweet butterfly lands on my arm I instantly think of the saying "How does one become a butterfly? You must "want" to fly so much you are willing to give up being a caterpillar." ☀️ #lifesmoments #running #ironmanlouisville #ironmantri #hysterectomyrecovery #strongerthenyouthink #butterfly #nevergiveup #nevergivein
When You get new tires on your bike and the speed limit says 55 you want to make sure you stay right under the speed limit.... #noticketsonyourbike #ridedownhill #downhillbiking #training #ironman #ironmantraining
I'm so blessed to be able to do the things I can do today was a nice "baby jogging to the sun!" However, I will say it's so hard to be back into shape or to be where I was.....☀️👟 #buildingendurance #sunrise #onedayatatime #hysterectomyrecovery #ironmantraining #trainwithwhatyouhave #ironmanlouisville #strongerthenyouthink #justdoit ##determinedathlete
Today was spectacular in so many ways!
Building my endurance back is soooooooooo tough I can't believe it.....However, riding with Greg LeMond, Amanda Manock and so many other amazing Athletes helped me ton today!! Always remember "You are Stronger then you think" and JUST GO DO IT! #greglamond #training #buildingendurance #hematomarecovery #ironman #determinedathlete #ironmanlouisville #strongerthenyouthink #justdoit
The struggle is real!
Yes I know I've been off from running for 5 weeks 5 days and about two weeks ago I could hardly even walk to the kitchen. Yes I know I had major surgery. Yes I know it takes time. Yes I know I'm stubborn! I'm telling all of you this because we're all human.
8/9/16 Bluff Run~My first 5 miles was at my pace yes I will 100% admit I was soooooooo P off that I couldn't get my time up the bluff like I have the past few years, my heart rate was sky high, I was ready to puke, my body was shaking and I was PISSED off! However, on my second time up I went slower and gave it all I had with my sister Bethanne Frydenlund my HR was still 170-180; she asked me "Danni you ok" I said "Yes" thankfully you know CPR and you know how to call 911 so I'm safe! There was no way I was going to quit.
I'm telling you this because if you take a week, two or however long of from your fitness have the #courage to go back and do the best you can with what you have! Yes it's going to be hard, yes you may feel like you can't do it anymore, yes your going to struggle, yes you might cry however, "Stay consistent and never , NEVER give up!"

Yep another hematoma was starting again in my lower abs; so yesterday had my 3rd procedure releasing blood from it.... That took me out of what I was going to do today, so I'll settle for a nice easy Sunday ride working on my biking legs and heart rate while watching IM Kona and tracking Les Welch at IMB.. Thank goodness for Zoots Cycling shorts they have a wide belly band or I wouldn't be able to ride shooting for 4 hours today...

Feeling like a million bucks today as I went into the doctor. He says "wow your getting around really good, what have you been doing? "I said "I've been working out"... 😉
He said everything looks great you can "baby jog" (but take it easy) so I did, my sister and I baby jogged up the bluff. Thank Goodness for belly braces or I wouldn't be able to run or pull this off... "Starting to feel like me again!" Always remember your stronger then you think! Thank you Bethanne Frydenlund for "baby jogging" with me 💗 u...... And thank you for taking the photo!!! ☀️😉💪#strongerthenyouthink #hematomarecovery #ironmommyintraining #determinedathlete #ironmanlouisville #ironmantraining #shine #sunshine #hysterectomyrecovery #runtothesun
