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.

Good Morning !!!!!!

It was cold, a little windy. But a heck of a rid this morning. My legs were burning by mile 5.

I took to the road this morning with a positive attitude. After yesterday, it couldn't be any worse.

This morning schedule included a 60 minute ride, with 6 x 1min Power Intervals. I pushed pretty hard on the intervals and felt pretty wasted when I got back to my car. I was using my heavier training bike for this ride. Everything worked great without any incidents.

I guess I didn't do much damage to my shoulder yesterday. It is feeling better today. I'll be back in the water in the morning.

I have been debating adding a long triathlon to my year. I am not quite sure yet but I have been debating doing the OneOOne triathlon in Houston in November. This Triathlon is new to the scene and is at a new length. Swim - 1.86mi, Bike - 80.6, Run - 18.6

The length is good and the cost isn't bad either. Well it is something to think about. Ciao!
