About Me

I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Week 2: 45 min Run

Busy Sunday as we continue to consolidate items and create donation piles for our final move. Our major accomplishment this weekend was to take almost 1,000 CDs, remove the plastic cases and condense all of them into a few binders, along with the liner notes. You wouldn't believe how much space we saved by doing this (and how many laughs we got making fun of each other's CD collections!) Who the hell is the band Zebra anyway and why do I have the soundtrack to the movie, "The Horse Whisperer?" Good times...

We did manage to squeeze in a 4.5 mile run this morning around 9am. It was already getting hot, but luckily there was plenty of water and Gatorade in the right places. As usual, many thanks to Runtex for having the neverending supply of hydration along the trail.

I managed to squeeze in my alotted 14 hours of training this week and feel better than ever! No real soreness or overexhaustion. This coming week is going to be a doozy. I'm scheduled to do 15-16 hours of training that includes a 20-mile run and a 75 mile bike ride. Honestly, I'm not sure that I'll be able to accomplish both of those. It's really not even necessary for either of the events that I'm training for, but we'll see how the week goes.

Arrrrgg... the CD/DVD project can be a 'B'. I look at all of them and get tired! Nice job on the training...funny how all those 'smaller' training deposits give us big dividends in the end!
