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.

I love Fridays ---- yeah, so does everyone else, right. But I really Love Fridays. Today is my multisport day. My fun day. It does help that I only work 1/2 days on Friday. I wake up with a new sense of excitement on Fridays.

Since I am working tomorrow I decided to throw in a good run this morning. I ran 9 miles at a comfortable pace. I averaged about a 9:15 min/mile. However during the run I threw in some gentle pickups and mid run speed work. I wasn't sure how I would feel because I woke up with some stiffness in my R hip. Must not have been anything because I did not feel it during the run. The weather this morning was perfect for running, the temps were cool with a light breeze. I listened to Simplystu's podcast during the run and got stoked by his interview with Dave Scott and Joanna Zeiger.

This afternoon I will be heading to the pool again. I really feel that my for is coming around. I am going to push for around 1400 yards today. If I can learn to relax and work on form I will do fine. I sometimes find myself trying to increase my speed and that's when I get sloppy. I need to work on my focus more. I only have 1 week left till my Sprint Tri and getting it right today is going to be really important.
