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.

Today is finally Wednesday, and although thats not a great thing it is all downhill from here till the weekend. Here in Colorado the weather has been absolutely perfect for training the last couple days. Temps have been low enough to not over-heat during runs but not so cold that you have to bundle up.
Yesterday i was able to get in 800 meters of swim time in the pool. I feel that my swimming is getting alot better but I still will get to the point where I get a little anxious and have to roll over and take a few breaths to relax. I would like to have some professional coaching but money is always a problem. Once the pool opens at my gym I'm hoping to find an advanced swimmer to maybe help me out some. I do have a friend that use to swim for the local high school - so she should be able to help me out also.
This morning I got in a good brick workout. Rode the bike hard for 30 minutes and then ran a 5K. Legs really felt good and I was able to push the pace to a 8:30min/mi for the last mile. I think if I can survive the swim I should be able to do faily well with the rest of the race. Tomorrow is hill work and 7 miles so I will be sore for what's left of this week
