I’m super excited about my latest sponsorships – Honey Stinger, Carmichael Training Systems and Chariot. I’ve been raving about Chariot for three years and just can’t imagine life without it. I have been racing with the Honey Stinger mountain bike team since last summer. The Stinger chews are by far the best energy chews on the market so much so that Juniper would rather them over candy and ice cream. And the newest of the group is Carmichael Training Systems (thanks to a partnership with the Honey Stinger team).
I waited to start getting coaching until this week when I felt like I could increase the intensity after Axel’s birth. My coach, Lindsay Hyman, has been amazing listening to my goals and time and schedule restraints then making a schedule that works for me. So far I have added some intensity to my workouts with some running strides and fartleks (with the Chariot and both kids). Next week looks much tougher with a bunch of hill repeats as my power and climbing legs are seriously lacking right now. Apparently I like to suffer as I’m looking forward to these workouts and the pain they’ll cause.
Thanks so much to all my amazing sponsors – you rock!
