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.

A Day Behind
September 07, 2006
Here I am and I am again one day behind on my blog. Really I try hard to stay up to date.

Yesterday I was back in the pool. Felt great and got in about 1600 meters. My form is feeling better and quicker. Breathing is better. Although I am not as fast as the Kahuna is in the water I think my form is better looking. Hahaha. Not trying to dis the Mighty Kahuna.

I only worked a half day yesterday. So ----what to do with the rest of the afternoon. Hmmmmm How about going for a short bike ride?

So I took off on my bike and put on 30 hard hilly miles. My legs were burning so bad when I got back. Ouch. But in a good way. Yes I am masocistic. Last night my legs were hurting real bad, so I did some abdominal work anyway. Got to push myself farther you know.

This morning I debated on resting my legs instead of doing my scheduled hillwork. That debate only lasted for a few minutes. And as any good triathlete would do - I went ahead with the hill work. Why you ask? Well because it is written down on my training schedule, duh!

The workout went suprisingly well. However my legs are killing me this afternoon. I do feel alot stronger on my runs since I started biking and swimming. I like to think that everything is helping me be stronger overall and hopefully making me faster as well.

News Update!!!!!!
Just got a set of LOOK pedals - Awesome. Will have to try these out soon. OOPS. So much for resting. YIKES!!!!!
