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 8: 5 laps at Barton Springs A.M./ 4.5 Mile Run P.M.

Barton Springs Swim

It was slow and it wasn't pretty, but I completed 5 laps at Barton Springs this morning for 1.4 miles. I felt relaxed and strong until the last lap when I started feeling fatigued. Every lap was right around 10 minutes, which is a good 15-20 sec slower than normal. I really can't attribute it to anything except for the fact that I'm SLOW!!

4.5 Mile Recovery Run

After meeting at the new house to check on the progress (or lack thereof), Shawn and I went for a 4.5 mile recovery run on Town Lake. The first mile was a good reminder of the fact that my legs were still sore, but I settled in after that. It was one of the most beautiful evenings I've ever witnessed. The sun was beginning to set over the lake and so man people were taking advantage of the weather.

Will hopefully get back to normal posts soon!! My chaotic existence is catching up with me!
