Ain't No Rest For The Wicked...

Phew....what a week. After a month of rest, race, recover, repeat x4, it was a bit of a shock to the system to get back into training. No worries though, coach Paul just kept it coming and told me "don't worry, we'll have you ready for Calgary". So I put my head down and ignored the fact that every muscle fiber in my body was hurting--it felt so good to be back at it!

ONE MORE WEEK!! Again, who's that super fast girl on the banner??!!
I've been scoping out the course and training on every square centimeter of it. With the help of my support crew (Nicole and Dex, they also helped me with my bike/run on Thursday) I did a swim to bike transition at the Ghost (the Ironman swim site) today...
It's been great training on the course, there have been so many athletes out there--it was tiring waving to everyone. I also made a new friend, Miles. He's also racing next weekend.
One more week of training and then it's show time!
That's all for now, I need to stretch and get some sleep! So tired....

Hello Lisa

You are one busy lady!!! Can't believe the Calgary 70.3 is this Sunday already. With all your racing and training under your belt this year you are going to kick some serious butt in this race. Good Luck!!!!

Just back from a 3300 mile road trip. Used my Scat & Tracks book. Great fishing in MT,ID, & WY.
Mama owl is back in the box having some eggs. (a first for us)
I will see how to follow your race Sunday. Hit 'em hard Lisa!
