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 in the Saddle
June 12, 2006
Well it's back in the saddle again. Rest time is over, like I really got any rest. I do feel pretty good overall, some residual soreness from the walk the other day but otherwise doing OK. I spent most of the weekend working on my new training schedule for the next 3 month and I incorporated more swimming. Figure I should concentrate on my weakness for awhile.

This morning I got in a nice swim for about 30 minutes. The endless pool is not ready so there was alot of stopping and turning but I do feel like I am getting some improvement to my form. I am trying to "feel long" in the water and it does feel different. breathing is not so much a factor now and I am more relaxed. Last weeks open water swim really helped me feel better in the water. After my swim I got in some core workouts that really felt great. It's nice to be able to alternate the different sports in traithlon rather than spend all my time just running.

After work I have a 60 minute bike planned with some hillwork. The weather seems to be holding today - there was suppose to be thunderstorms but that threat seems to have passed. It is god-awful hot out there but I still plan on pushing hard. I have read that Kona is very hot so I might as well get use to it in training, right? (Dreaming-------) Ciao!
