Vic camp days 1-5


After 5 days of heavy training (coming off a Christmas-New Years recovery week), I am thoroughly exhausted! We've done some long runs in the snow, wind and rain but it's nice to be outside. Paul had us run 3x2miles on the weekend and follow that up the next day with a 2hour hilly base (low heart rate) run. Needless to say, I could barely move my legs by Monday! He's taken care of the upper body with some long 5k swims. Good news is, my shoulder seems to be holding in okay and my times are coming down again! It's been a long recovery from that Beijing crash but it's slowly getting better!

Now I am vegging out on my bed, recovering before our trainer ride (with an added bonus of a 20' run at the end). Gotta love training camps...

Hi Lisa,

nice to read triathlon stuff again!
Hope your shoulder holds!
Here in the Netherlands we have the hardest winter in 12 years. At the moment 15 cm of snow and temp -15 degrees.
But that is nice if it only happens once in 12 years :-)

All the best in Vancouver and training camp!
