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.

Terrible Tuesday
May 09, 2006

Well, I did not know how bad I was going to feel after the bike ride yesterday but suprisingly I felt pretty good this morning. I was very tight starting out and that really never got much better. However I did push as hard as my little running sticks would go.

This morning was a 10 mile at marathon pace. Well at least I got in 1 of 2. I did finish 10 miles but because of yesterdays ride I wasn't even close to marathon race pace. But - I did feel good during the run with no pain in my legs. Just a little ache in the left knee, but that went away after warming up.

I am hoping to get in 1100 yards in the pool at lunch today. With any luck my form is better after reading more of the Total Immersion book last night. I think I will buy the DVD when I can afford it.

Tomorrow I will take a rest day. I think I will need it both mentally and physically. I am getting a bit nervous about the sprint tri coming up - my FIRST one. WOW. I hope to look back on these nervous days in the future and remember how I felt now ---- just before I start my first Ironman. Ciao!
