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.

Heart - Meet the Traithlon World.

Triathlon World meet my Heart!

So I asked my heart this morning, "heart" I said, what would you like to do for a swim?

My heart answered with an evil grin - let's do a mega ladder. Let's finish the day with 4000 yards.

Great - let's get to it. And with that the morning started.

And so we swam - my heathly heart and me. Yes folks, that is a real picture of my CT Scan of my heart done 2 weeks ago. As you can see the detail is amazing. The report of the scan was read by a Cardiologist and everything is A-OK. Good this too. Now I probably should get a picture of my lungs because I swear I sucked in half the pool this morning. I got to 4000 by doing a large -giant ladder intervals. Going 100,200,300,400,500,600 then back down. With the warmup and cooldown I did total 4000. The 600 was pretty rough. I did keep up a good pace though. There were onther swimmers in the lane next to me and I pushed to either keep up or pass them with each lap. Nothing like competition to keep up the pace.

My legs are pretty tired from yesterday's bike. Although not worn out terribly. I think they will be ready for another ride tomorrow. This is the last week of base training. I am looking forward to getting on my new training schedule. The weather is going to be great this week, so I think it is goodbye winter - hello spring. Life is good - keep moving forward! Ciao!
