Still at it!

Okay, so I have been informed that my blog is not up to date. It is certainly not because I haven't been training, it is because of the training that I haven't had time to blog! Things are going really well though. Last week was a very tough mental week, Saturday and Sunday were a test of my determination to do this thing and I am convinced now that I have the mental capacity to pull it off. The 3 hour bike ride was a struggle from beginning to end, but I did it, complete with the 5 minutes in zone 4 at 2:50, I am pretty sure I wanted to burst out crying but I didn't and I survived! Sunday was more of the same 1:15 of convincing myself that I was doing the right thing.

I took yesterday off and I am taking today off as well, I feel like I am coming down with something and I just want to fight it off, so it will be to bed early again tonight. :)

lightening fast on the bike!

Yeah, that's me, super fast!!

Okay, now this has nothing to do with my amazing speed but does have a lot to do with the size of my ass and how I feel after training for a good solid three months I really feel like it should be getting smaller. I don't mean to harp on this subject but COME ON!! My husband is way too nice :)

I only have moments of feeling sorry for my self, soon it passes and I am so thankful for the ability to train and for the level of fitness I am now enjoying.

Hot Babe!!!

I gotta tell's nice to have this hot, tri-athlete roaming around my house. Look out Hawaii, it could be string bikini time!!!!

Long time, no post!

Well, it is not because I haven't been been working hard, because I have! Things have actually been going really well :)

It is amazing knowing what its ahead, how it will keep you on track! Man, I can be dead on my feet and will take a little cat nap and hit the treadmill or the bike, I am proud of myself and I am amazed at the whole process.

On the swimming; I have to get new goggles, I had a terrible workout today because there was just no way for me to keep the water out of my goggles. It was actually not very much water but enough to drive me crazy! Other than that, I think I am finally getting my "seat" higher in the water and I have to say it does make it a bit easier.
