Saturday Saturday

March 30th, 2011 | Posted by Kelly Burns Gallagher in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

I’m finally in the rest week of my 5 week base block. While its good to rest now, last week was a bit of a beast training wise (just under 21 hours). My biggest day was Saturday, which included a 4 hour 27 minute trainer ride, an hour long run and several hours prep for …

5 Day Extended Forecast

March 23rd, 2011 | Posted by Kelly Burns Gallagher in Uncategorized - (1 Comments)

It’s Wednesday March 23 and I’m in my fourth straight week of building before a rest week. Normally I have three higher volume weeks followed by a rest week but because the Hyannis Half did not fit perfectly in this schedule, I ended up with a three week block before Hyannis and now am making …

Goat Eggs

Its finally warmed up enough to be able to ride outside. On Friday, it actually hit 70 degrees and I had a 60 minute ZR ride. So, I snuck out of work early and Shaun and I rode up to the ridge via the goat farm. We brought carrots to feed the goats and to …

Please Pass the Felix Felicis

Sitting around at MIT this past weekend waiting for a review of our swim analysis videos, I asked Jeff how many minutes he wanted me to give him when we raced Rev 3. Jeff responded that he was going to beat me straight up and essentially have the race of his life. I laughed and …

Hap-py Hip-po

For those who have never had the pleasure this is a Happy Hippo: Happy Hippos are probably the most amazing candies ever. It is basically a wafer filled with either chocolate or milk flavoring and then sprinkles are added on the outside. The inside of the chocolate one tastes like chocolate and the milk version …

A CSA for the Summer

March 11th, 2011 | Posted by Kelly Burns Gallagher in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

I’m a meticulous eater. I assemble and pack my meals on a daily basis: (1) because I try really hard to adhere to the principles of the core diet; and (2) I’m really particular about what I put into my body (except for Oreos and Happy Hippos but those are special post-super long work out …

New Toys!

Yesterday, Shaun and I headed up to Fast Splits in Newton, Massachusetts to try on wetsuits (me) and pick up some bike parts (Shaun). I was lucky enough to find the “perfect” wetsuit — a Blue Seventy Axis Full Sleeve. While we were there, Shaun and I also ran into Tim and Cait Snow and …

Hyannis Half Marathon

March 3rd, 2011 | Posted by Kelly Burns Gallagher in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

I live in Plantsville, Connecticut, the Hyannis Half Marathon takes place in Hyannis, Massachusetts (on Cape Cod) about a 2.5 hour drive. Being from New England (or maybe being me), I am convinced that any race within 3 hours that starts at 10 a.m. is totally drive-able on race morning and there’s no need to …

While Nutella and sashimi may not go together very well, I’m trying to put together a winning combination this weekend at the Hyannis Half Marathon. I have a few “goals” for the race: (1) beat my time a 1:53:XX from Rehoboth; (2) not be the last QT2 athlete across the line; and (3) finish the …

(Re) Learning to Swim

February 10th, 2011 | Posted by Kelly Burns Gallagher in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Once upon a time I was a swimmer. I swam as a age grouper for the Southington Stingrays from the time I was 5 years old until I was in high school. As a teenager I swam for Southington High School. Once I got to college, I played water polo for Dartmouth. So, from the …
