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.

May 22, 2007

Back in the water Monday morning. I'm feeling pretty good, however my legs are a little sore from my bike on Sunday. That's OK - I won't be using them as much in the pool.

I scheduled a long swim for the morning. With a 300 warm-up and cool-down. For my interval set I wanted to get in a total of 1800 yards.

At first, after getting in the pool, I got my warm up done and felt pretty good. I figured on doing 9x200 intervals to get to my total yardage for the day. After starting my first interval I started thinking to my self. I said, Self - why no do 700 yards straight and time it. So off I went. After doing the 700 yards I took a look at my watch and it showed 11:22. Now that is more like it. I knew that the swim at Morrison was an abnormality. I really can swim a lot faster.

I did a second set of 700 and fininished off the day with a 400 and a 100 yard. Cool down felt great. I felt like I accomplished something. I felt strong again. Keep rocking and keep training. CIAO!
