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.

Nah!, Well maybe just a little.

The rain kept me from a long ride yesterday on my bike. Not just a drizzle but a fire and brimstone kind of rain. I didn't want to get struck down, so to speak. So I stayed inside and used my trainer, while watching Tiger Woods kick some major ass.

This morning I got in about 15oo meters. I feel a little sluggish this morning. I am not sure if it is leftover from sleeping last night or a tad bit of overtraining. I will probably go for a short run tomorrow and see how I feel. The rest of today I am going to rest and take in fluids for this weekend. I am feeling fitter overall and althought I am not back at my race weight I should be there by the end of the week. I have been a little heavier but I am swimming more and I think I'm putting on some upper body weight with the added muscle. My back is feeling much better this morning than it has in some time.

I got Obsessive of over the weekend and wash "Athena" down. I think she really liked it and hopefully she will perform beautifully on Sunday. I need to start planning and packing up my equipment for this weekend. I'm so gosh darn obsessive that I end up going over everything about 10 times before I leave. Just in case anything tries to jump out of my transition bag while it sits there waiting. Never know!!!!
