A Little of This and That

It's really great to read how everyone is getting back into the swing of things. Me, well I do not know why I can not. Or just don't want to. Trying to figure it out.

I found a triathlon training group in Miami. For beginners they start on May 8.{my sons 18th} I can afford it and it is 2 days a week. Plus help with diet and everything. Other than that every other day I have been doing a circuit training video with my daughter and interval running. She is faster then me. I haven't been on the bike or anything. I am in a runt and I can't get out.

I know in the back of my head I have to train and get back up to the longer miles. Training for the Goofy here. Yes I am going to try it. And I want to run the entire half in October. But sitting around isn't cutting it. The weather here has been awesome.

E finally went to the doctor about his foot. She has him doing stretches 3 times a day for 3 weeks. And if that doesn't help then send him to a specialist. Oh great. E is wanting to get out the door and stuff, me ehh ok.

And the vo2 max is in. As soon as the staff is finished with training she wants me in there. That's what she told E. And I am due for my 3 month lab redraw.

My car is coming along, E said we can pull it out, and finish taking it apart to see if there is any damage to the head . I will post pics. The fan saved my radiator from getting stuff stuck in to it. Thank goodness. The fan works great still. The only thing that wasn't mentioned on the build sheet for my car was the cam. I can't wait to see what kind it is, and maybe get a different one. :)

Other than that, things have been rolling along smooth, no drama.

I think you might be feeling a little bit depressed about your first try at the tri and not being able to do the 70.3...That's normal, it's okay. You have to give yourself time to get over it and then you can move forward.

I sure am glad to hear you'll be trying the Goofy with us. It's going to be fun and the way I'm going right now I'll probably be walking the whole thing...No speed here right now at all.

I have a new co-worker that does 5-6 tri's a year. He finished an iron man and he is working on qualifying for Kona this year. He's got three kids, the wife, work and he still fits in his training - pretty amazing. He also runs marathons at a 7:50 - 8 minute per mile pace. I've seen him ride his bike to work - he trains all the time. Let me know if you have any specific questions for him and I'll ask - he's very nice and we've had some good conversations already!

I know how you're feeling right now and you'll snap out of it - it takes time, but I know you'll get there. I know how amazing you are - now all you have to do is remember how much you've already accomplished and how amazing you are. Things will start clicking for you again - deep breathing exercises and lots of blogging to your online friends helps a lot :)!

Hope the car gets fixed fast and runs fabulous for you!
