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.

Have you ever heard the song "I Love Summer" by Haywood Banks. It has got to be the funniest song ever written about summer time events I have ever heard. I listened to it this morning on my run. I started laughing out loud and the other people on the trail must have thought I was nuts.
Today's schedule rocked. It was my first time back on the trail running since my marathon. I got on the trail earlier than usual because the weather is suppose to be scortching today. Highs are predicted to be at the century mark. I did 4:00 miles at a decent 8:50 mile. My legs felt really good and there was no return of any Plantar Fasciitis or right ankle pain from before. I pushed a little bit harder at times and everything seems to be doing well.
After the run I got in the pool and swam for about 40 minutes. I am trying to get my swim done in the regular pool but it is only 40 Ft long so it makes it difficult to maintain a rhythm. The endless pool is still not complete and it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon. I am not sure how far I swam this morning but I did work more on form than speed and feel that my form is getting better. I am feeling more balanced in the water lately. I have been working on keeping my head down and rolling more for breaths. There is still work to be done on my stroke though. I don't feel like am catching as much water as I should. One thing at a time, right. Ci vediamo !
