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.

Oh No, Snow
January 31, 2007

The weather outside is frightful, just right for training outdoors. If you are a snowman.

Well, I guess it will be about another week at least until I will be training outdoors again. Temps are going to be dangerously low for the next 3 days. Snow is predicted for the next 3 days as well. It is snowing as I type this blog out. I don't think I will every get to ride outside again.


Should I get some cheese to go with my Whine!!!!!!!!

There is some good news though. Tonight I will be in the pool coaching again. I have been hearing stories about these women in town that have been training furiously in the water trying to improve technique. I hope that my coaching will help them to become excellent swimmers. With the weather turning bad again, I look forward to my pool time as a time of relaxation and meditation. I hope to get a few pictures tonight of the training and get them posted tomorrow.

I was back on my bike/trainer this morning for 50 minutes. I tried pushing myself as much as possible. The trainer does get real boring though. I don't know if there are any ways of making it more exciting. It's still better than going to the gym and using a stationary bike. I do wish that my gym would get a spinning class started. Being in a class of 10+ people pushing each other around would be great. They do have Indoor Trainer classes up in Colorado Springs, but that is quite a trip to make just for a one hour session. I guess I'll just continue to struggle along until the weather warms up. Till tomorrow. Ciao! Ci Vediamo
