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.

Hello - How goes life?

Today I woke up feeling down. I have been having some increased stress lately and I think it is catching up to me. I just feel blah today. No matter how hard and extra I work it seems that my bills are piling up faster than I can get them paid. I hope I can make it to payday. It doesn't help being a Triathlete either, everything is expensive. The cost of the race, equipment, travel, food etc. That cuts into the budget as well.

I got back in the pool this morning. It was crowded but I ended up having my own lane after a short while. The others in the pool kept stopping and chatting at the end of the lane and my flip turns were getting them wet. Oooops. Anyway they moved to another lane and I then got in a great swim. Once again I just started swimming laps and kept going. I got in a 1000 yard interval and felt like I could go another 500 without problems. I worked a little harder on breathing on my weak side too. I don't want to be one-sided and start swimming in circles out on the lake - like a one-armed man rowing a boat.

Tonight it looks like the consensus is a bike ride - The Tri-Club is meeting for a short 20 mile ride. sounds like a good break from my usual schedule. Hopefully I will be in a better mood by that time. I am looking forward to another open water swim this weekend.

La vita di maggio otterrà migliore presto - prego !!!!
