I am a procrastinator at heart. I'm truly a pro at putting things off so I find my training to be no different. However, I'm starting to feel the heat as we are quickly counting down to the date of the triathlon.
Speaking of procrastination I meant to write last week. I had an uncomfortable run with my training partner Shelly on Wednesday. I had been sick the week before and I guess it just took me a while to get back in the groove. We ran two miles and the goal was no walking. At 1.5 miles I had to walk. I can make a lot of excuses but basically I felt pathetic. I swam that night and also felt really sluggish.
I took a rest day on Thursday and on Friday decided to run four miles. I feel ashamed to even say that because I have several friends who are running marathons and half marathons. They are really cranking out some miles! I guess you have to start somewhere though.
My four mile run went surprisingly well considering my flop on Wednesday. Because of my knee issues I tried to run on the grass as much as possible. There was definitely some walking involved but overall I felt pretty good about it. I did a five mile mt. bike ride on Sunday and swam yesterday. Today I'm hoping for another 4 mile run.
