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.

Pool Time
August 09, 2006

I am sure loving swimming now. It has been really nice now that I can go swimming any day of the week for as long as I want. I have been trying to go for 3 times per week for at least an hour at a time.

The pool has been cool and clear. Usually there has only been a few people in the pool. Mostly elderly waderss and they have been nice enough to give me a lane to swim on one side. I have been getting to the water around 6:30am.

I feel that I am progressing slowly, it seems that the progression is getting faster with the increased time I am spending in the pool. I can feel a rhythm, some effort free swimming and more natural feeling to the whole thing. It is realy weird to feel that. This usually occurs early in the session, later when I get tired I really have to think about what I am doing because otherwise I feel like I am struggling and just playing propeller with my arms. But that is happening less and less.

Otherwise, my hip flexor is still hurting this afternoon. It hurts into my lower back more than it was this morning. I am going back to New Hampshire for the next 4 days for my Mother's Memorial Service, that will give me a 4 day rest and hopefully it will be better by next week. It doesn't really bother me to swim but biking and running is a problem.

So with that, there will be no blog for the next 4 days. I will start up again on Monday. Remember to download and listen to the GYGO Podcast. Awesome. Ci Vediamo, !
