Oh Happy Day

Firstly, I was so moved by LouBob's recent post. She is the rockinest cowgirl around.


I really enjoyed my 60 minute run this morning. It's been awhile since I've run outside in the morning and with the threat of rain at bay I peeked outside around 6am and was glad to see dryness. Out the door by 6:30 am I headed over to the Berkeley Marina. Running along the mile pier that stretches out/back a little over a mile I tried to visulize what a quarter mile in open water would look like. I've been so stressed about the swimming and not running much the two have proven to be toxic combination. The fresh ocean air really cleared my head and I feel better than I have all week.

The group has a ride scheduled this morning at 9, I feel up for it. I left a message for the swim coach but she hasn't got back to me. I'll have to call again and leave more details I guess, as I was hoping to speak to her about my learning style and preference for more demonstration.

So yeah, the run this morning was exactly what I needed to get out of my funk. No watch, just checked in a couple time w/people on the streets to keep track of time so T could get to his appointment (Bloodwork and treadmill test) The ironic thing is I want to learn to swim so I CAN run longer, reap the ben's of x-training ya know. My new friends from triathlete.com have been helpful too, so now I don't have to yak so much about tri stuff here.

Life's too short to be in a funk and there's nothing wrong with tri-blogging either, it's part of who yu are.
