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….
