My Personal Web Log
5 1/2 weeks
Can you believe it? In just 5 1/2 weeks I will be in California, getting ready to do my race. I can not believe it. Before I know it, I will be on that plane. Today the temps outside are hot. As I type it is 84 and humid. i will be running 8 miles tonight. Tomorrow is my bike and swim day. My swim is getting better. Let's just say, I will probably make it out of the water (hahah) All joking aside, I will be o.k. Getting closer to my goal of $3000, have some matching gifts coming in and I couldn't be more excited. I will make you all proud! I promise.

So I have been sick for the past 10 days and am finally ready to get back to training. This really hindered me because I only have 2 months left. It is getting so close, its freaking me out a bit. I want to get through this swim. I have to get through the swim. No if's, and's, or but's. I have had some anxiety lately. I know I need to relax, focus and just plain suck it up and not think too much about it. Going for a run in the morning hoping to get in about 7 miles. Stay tuned for those results. Thank you all so much for your love and support. I could not do this without you!!!

2 more months
5/31- 2 more months till my race. Got a few swims in, a 6 mile run, and a time trail bike ride this week. Next week 3 swims, a long run on Saturday and a long ride on Sunday. Started s new yoga workout. Since my back has been sore lately. I had a great weekend last week celebrating my sons graduation and now it is back to the grind. Had a small fundraiser during the party and raised $225. I got some money in the mail that really help get me to our goal of $3000. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated. I love you all. Stay tuned to my next workout. Swimming with my wet suit in the pool and open water. Or lordy don't let me drown. Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

160 mile weekend
So May 4th and 5th I cycled 160 miles 104.9 day 1 55 day 2 . Felt good, got a little crampy day 1 around mile 75 but all in all , was a great weekend. Was for a great cause Bike MS for my sister in law Christie Germans. Our family has a lot of stuff going on and the least I can do is endurance events in their honor and sometimes in their memory. Pool action today need to swim 1800 yards and need to do some power yoga. Happy Friday ya'all!!!!
