Ironman Italy Week 7

Sometimes I have to remind myself it's okay to rest. I've been TRI TRI TRI ' ing for basically 5 years straight, training for and finishing 12 full Ironman, 9 half Ironman, and a multitude of other running and short distance triathlons. When I have a week that is filled with "REST" I feel like a SLACKER.
Even though I'm training for a full, I have a half next weekend and require the taper so RELAX Lisa Jennifer!! I'm going to hit all my short fast sessions in preparation for Norway next week and then it's time for the big stuff (which, lucky for me, I'll be in the states!!! Shhhh... ;) ;) ;)

Monday, June 19, 2017 - a full Monday with my lovey. I don't even know what we did or where the day went!? We attempted to swim, guess what? Pool closed. AHH! Got to chat with my momma though who returned from her Grand Canyon adventure.

Tuesday, June 20 - morning in La Spezia for my language course. Later in the evening, we attempted to swim again. Again, closed! Counting on "open" is a joke around here. GRR.

  1. My husband and I had our wedding reception at this place. The Chicago wedding venues were absolutely perfect! The manager and his staff were excellent and wonderful to work with. You won't be able to find more for your money.
