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.

Inside Riding Again
February 25, 2007
Well the weather changed again. Got colder today with a stiff wind and the chance of snow. the Interstate to Kansas has been shut down again due to blizzard conditions. Hopefully the near future holds more sunshine and warm weather for training.

I finished up my training plan for the Timberman in August. It is quite intimidating. I am setting up this blog with a link on the right hand side that will bring up my training log on Trifuel. Anyone wanting to see what I am doing can link over there and check out my mileage. I will also start posting my weekly schedule of training on Sundays. Now everyone can see what I will be doing for the next week and compare that with what I actually did. It will also help to keep me accountable for the training that I should be doing.

Today I did not have too much time for training, however, I did get in 50 minutes of cycling on my trainer. I kept it at a moderate pace, and tried to keep my pedal stroke very balanced. I tweaked my bike again on Friday and the changes feel pretty good after today's ride. After the bike I hit up my Abs for about 100 reps. I need to get more stretching in - I am finding that I am pretty stiff when I am in the aero position for a long time. Tomorrow I am going to get in a 3 mile run after I get some sleep from working a graveyard shift at the hospital. Now I need to get going - CIAO!!!!
