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.

What have you done today to prepare for you next Race? that is a question I ask myself everyday. And if I can't come up with anything then I at least get in some "core" training.

But this morning I did get in a nice 6 mile run with Fartleks added in from time to time. The weather was perfect for running and the Riverwalk was so beautiful under the canopy of trees. My legs are feeling pretty good, maybe a little tired from yesterday's 4 miler but overall feeling good with no pain. I think my shoes are still holding up OK. Probably will need a new set by next month though.
Next week I am on vacation from my regular job but will be getting in some extra hours at my second job. This will allow for some extra training next week. I am going to try and get in some extra swim time and also would like to get in some open water training. I just need to find out where I can do that. I still would like to attend a masters swim training to get a few more pointers on my form. Anyway tomorrow I am back on the bike for 90 minutes. I always look forward to my bike workouts, and suprisingly I now look forward to my swim workouts as well. CIAO
