Power, Give em' Power

Well, I've been home for little over a week and it's flown by! It all started off with some visit time with family (mine & Richard's) over the Easter weekend, some visits with friends that I haven't seen in awhile, and after a week of 'recovery' I was back into training. The weather has been nice since I got home, with the exception of one snow day, it's been pleasant--Although I froze on my ride today!! Richard and I had a great spin last weekend, although it involved a 20' search and rescue of my driver's licence that fell out of my pocket--I was about to give up when I looked down and nearly rode over it!

The post training camp's been cleaned up but took some time!! This weeks training has involved some higher intensity work in the pool, on the run and on the bike. I leave for Korea on April 27th, so I need to get into the short course racing frame of mind. After some fast 'start-speed' 50's in the pool, some short hill repeats with the UCAC run group, and some power intervals on the bike, I had forgotten why I like the short course races! Now I remember--I'm addicted to the power! I'm excited to race the first ITU race of the season!

I made a few changes to the blog. Since I continuously get questions about my next race, I added a 'Upcoming race' list, click on the race and it will link you to the race site. I'll keep it up to date and add more when I finalize my schedule. If you scroll down a little further I also added 'triathlon terms defined' so everyone will know what I'm talking about when I say my HR was high on my TT during a 70.3! One day I may even have a website....Let me know if there is something else you'd like to see or defined.

That's all for now!

GO Lisa GO! More ITU... so jealous! That was my ultimate goal to race one of those but since coach noticed my incredible swim speed (lack there of) he decided to put me in the long stuff...
