I started running in January of 2004 to get in shape. I had gained too much weight and felt terrible. I was able to run my first 5K 3 months later. 2 years later and 50 lbs lighter, I have continued to push for greater goals and have run 5 marathons and I am training for an Iron distance triathlon now. Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude towards life, training and my future.

Well my workout yesterday went well. I'm still having problems with the swim but I just need to get in the water more. As soon as the gym gets the Endless Pool in place I should be able to increase to 3 x week. The bike ride was great. Definately felt the burn in my quads.
This morning I did intervals at the track. Got in 6x800 before the gym class came out fo the school and took over. Ran my intervals in about 3:35 or so. Felt good and strong today. I need to keep up on the stretching because I do feel better. My stride is opening up again.
Back to the gym class. I made some observations about our local gym class. The first one is "Lazy". 3/4 of the class made no effort at all to try hard. This could be because of the enthusiasm I noticed in the gym teacher, who leaned up against the wall and drank a cup of coffee. No wonder the kids of today are not in great physical shape. The adults that should be pushing them and creating the enthusiasm are not even trying themselves. The outdoor practice lasted maybe 20 minutes. Good health and exercise need to be a higher priority in our schools.
