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.

Not the it really matters that it is Friday today - I have to work the weekend. Yuck. Anyway - to everyone else have a great weekend.

I got in a nice slow 4 miles this morning, running that is. I have not been putting as much emphasis on running lately and I really need to start doing that more. I am feeling a little slow. Yesterday at lunch I got in 4 miles as well. But that run was very slow because it was 92 degrees out. Wow, I didn't know I could sweat that much. I had a headache by the time I finished. I weighed myself before and after the run and found that I had lost just over 4 lbs during the run. Not good.

This morning I took it easy on the run with some fartleks mixed in. I felt better this morning than I did yesterday. Even though it was cooler, the humidity is still hovering around 66%. So I got in a great sweat this morning as well. I am starting to get nervous about next weekend, but also very excited. I can't wait to get back into racing again.

I am planning on taking tomorrow off from training and getting some much needed rest time this week. Sunday I would like to get in a long bike ride. At least 40 - 50 miles with a 30 minute run-off. At least that is what I have planned. Who knows. Ciao for now.
