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.

It's rest day. Whew! not that I got alot done this week training wise but I need to rest up a little. I think I may go float around int he pool this afternoon and do some drills but nothing very strenuous.

8 days left till the marathon and I am really stoked. I just got the extended forcast for next Saturday and unfortunately at this point in time it looks to be a hot one. Thank God we are getting under way early in the morning. But the ending will still be around 80 degrees. Just will have to take in more hydration. I will have to hydrate well the days before the race and eat a little more salt to retain the fluids. Should be fine though.

It's amazing how much of our training is actually mental. And how much negative thoughts and situations affect us physically. With the last few days of mental stress I have had I feel as though I am not as strong as last week. I'm still stoked about the marathon, and about my finish last week at the triathlon, but deep down inside I am struggling. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to stoke the fire higher and forget about the bad days.

My next report will be probably on Tuesday. I love 3 day weekends. I hope everyone stays safe, has fun, and most of all ---- get in some training !!!!!!!!!!
