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.

Monday Starts the Weekend
September 11, 2006

That's the way I feel at least. What a great weekend it was. I had time to get a lot done around my house and get in a decent run.

I had to work on Saturday but the 12 hours went by fairly quickly. I was busy for most of the day. After work I went out for a nice quiet dinner and went home to bed. It is so nice to be able to go home and relax without any stress. I spend time thinking about the future. Thinking about upcoming races. And I was thinking about how IronWil was doing on her night before her Ironman. How freaked out could that be! Guess I will find out in 2008.

Yesterday I got in a good slow run of 8 miles. I mixed in some intervals and hillwork into the run. My legs felt great, maybe a little tired from last weeks workouts though. I did have some discomfort in my L hip. That has gone away thank God. I tried to keep my heartrate in the aerobic zone for most of the run. The weather out here has been awesome for working out. The mornings are cool and the days are just a little warm but the temps go down quickly in the evening for another run or bike.

This morning I was back in the pool. The water was much cooler which felt great. My swimming is going great and I am able to swim continuously for 500 meters at a time. I still wish I had a coach to take a look at me. I don't think I am that far off from where I should be on form, might just need to tweak it a little. Otherwise I am feeling great, my weight is dropping down to race levels again. I am continuing my ab/core workouts at night. I feel my body fat levels are dropping again. WOW - doesn't it feel good to be in good health. Looks good too!!!!!!!!
