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.

Hey, How are all the triathlon-training-geeked out people of the world doing?

It's another great day in Colorado - life - sustaining sunshine and warmth.

God I love this State!!!!!!!

I was back in the pool this morning. Not a real good night's rest. Feeling a little groggy this morning.

The swim, however, went real good. Not a lot of yardage this morning but definitely quality swimming. I still did my 300 warm up and cool down. I did 300 yards of drills with 100 pull, 100 kick and 100 paddles. I then did 10x40 sprints with flip turns. Then I got in 4x200 I think. I had my mind wandering this morning and lost count. Not real focused for some reason. I have only 1 more week before my training program starts and I think I am starting to get nervous.

I am not nervous about the mileage, or yardage of the program. I am pushing a lot of those numbers now in my base training. I think I am nervous because it means that my half-iron is scheduled at the end of the program - It gives my training some finality. A purpose. That is what makes me nervous. I'm scared, nervous and excited at the same time and that is hard to figure out. I can't imaging what the full iron is going to feel like.

Tomorrow morning if the weather holds, I'll be on my bike doing hillwork. I Love Hill Work. Sounds weird, I know. I really push on hills because I feel that hillwork makes flat running and biking easier. So for now - Ciao!
