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.

2 Days Out
May 23, 2006

Last night I slept better than I have for the past 2 weeks. Now the adrenaline of the triathlon is gone. My muscles are tired. My mind is finally relaxed. This will not last long....with Salt Lake only 11 days away.
Today I woke up refreshed but a little more sore than yesterday. The hardest part of my plan for the next 2 weeks is trying to figure out what to do. I want to concentrate on my taper, but I would like to get in a few bike rides and swim a little too. The pool at my gym is too short for lap work so I am waiting for the Endless pool to be ready. They tell me it will be about 1 week. I am looking forward to starting my training in it. I will be able to have a coach work one on one with me in the water and give me immediate feedback without having to worry about flip turns and walls.
Tomorrow is an easy 4 miles to stretch, I may substitute an easy bike ride instead. Guess it depends on how I feel in the morning. I am still in shock that I have finished my first triathlon, and my mind has been wandering more lately. Trying to keep my mind on Salt Lake is my priority but I keep looking ahead to my next Triathlon. The next one is the Prosect Lake Sprint Triathon and it is an open water swim. I still have a mental problem with that. I guess I will just have to get used to it. Any suggestions would be helpful to stop the anxiety. Anybody?
