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.

Back at it this morning. My rest day felt great. And I was able to get a good nights sleep. I woke up refreshed this morning and ready to go. The weather is a little cool this morning but great for training. Last night I got a chance to adjust my cycling shoe a bit. Lately on rides I have been getting a pain in the region of the left IT band. I found that my left shoe was adjusted farther back than the right shoe. So I adjusted it to about the same place as the right and rode the trainer for awhile. I think it will help.

This morning I got in 8 x 800 meter intervals with a mile warm up and a cool down. I can't believe how much fast I am getting. Without really trying hard I was hitting a 3:35 for 800 meters. For me that is fast. Then 3 intervals later I ran a 3:20. I feel that I am able to stretch out my stride alot more and push harder. I always knew that the only way to get faster was intervals but I never placed much emphasis on them in the past. I am finding out that I really should be putting intervals in all of my training plans. Especially if I want to qualify for Boston.

Tomorrow I will probably do 9 miles because I am working on SAturday and will be unable to run. I will also try and get in 1200 - 1400 meters at the pool. I hope my form starts getting smoother. I only have 1 week left till the Pueblo Triathlon. I'm getting nervous---------
