Wow…THREE WEEKS TO GO!!! I can’t believe it. It’s almost here. And time is gonna fly. I’m heading to Whistler this weekend to see one my favorite people in the world, Jay Demerit, get married! Jay has been like another brother to me. My brother Ty and him have been tied at the hip for the last 15ish years. I can’t say enough good things about Jay. He’s marrying, Ashleigh McIvor, a gold medalist in Ski Cross. Talk about an athletic couple. Ashleigh happens to be sponsored by Oakley, and so obviously we hit it off right away. These two LOVE to party, and I’m sure this weekend will not disappoint.
BUT, I still have a BIG race to focus on. So this past week was dedicated to some hard core training. It was Peak Week numero uno. I had a BIG BRICK – 5hr bike and a 1hr run. And a BIG run day – 2hr run in the AM and a 40min run in the PM. Needless to say I was pretty amped up on caffeine all weekend. I rarely have any caffeine and when I do, it’s like I’m in overdrive. I am super sensitive to caffeine, and even after all that working out, I still could barely keep my hands and legs still.
There was some beach time this past week, and some catch up girl time, in between all the working out. Fortunately, I got plenty of sleep in Wisconsin, so my body is feeling GREAT!
I’m actually pretty thankful for heading out of town this weekend, because it’s serving as a great distraction. On top of that, I will get some time here and there to spectate Ironman Canada in Whistler, which will serve as some awesome inspiration to carry me into Ironman Wisconsin.
Here are some fun photos from the week!
Now I’m off to get a massage!!!
