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.

I was back in the water this morning. It felt good to get in. I actually got there about 30 minutes earlier than usual to start getting use to having to get up earlier everyday. My next training period will require more time in the mornings for training.

I got in a new personal record of 2500 yards this morning. And yes, I do feel that I am still improving with time. My form has improved and I am not as tired after doing 200 repeats and 400 repeats. This morning there was another swimmer in the lane next to me. He swims OK but his form is poor and he wastes too much time trying to stay afloat than actually swimming. Sort of what I use to be like at the beginning.

I found myself swimming past him without any trouble at all. using more than half the number of strokes to move the same distance. It made me feel that all this training is getting somewhere.

This afternoon I am going for a short run. I need to get use to doing my swim workouts and run workouts on the same day. I can't wait to see how I feel after a few weeks of this. So far So Good. Finora così buon !
