Fast and furious....

Been a while since I've updated my blog or my training log.

I am a bad girl.

Quick update:

All is going well -- meaning, I'm getting workouts done and I'm not injured or too overwhelmed.

I am worried that I'm not doing enough, but this is every runner/triathletes issue. I just have to trust my coach.

I also worry that if I talk/write/obsess about this much more in public/out loud, that I'll jinx myself. And yet, here I am writing and obsessing once again.

Ces't la Ironman.

I went to Madison last weekend on a SOUL-o journey. (yes, soul). I needed to do some personal / emotional work on my own before going back for training weekends with friends.

I did have a chance to ride and run a bit on the IM WI course, which was great.

I also took walk after walk after walk down memory lane.

I'm glad I went.

I took a bunch of pics and will post more later.

I took a self portrait of me at the IM WI finish line (minus all the finish line stuff...)

Because there is no way in heck that I'm finishing in daylight, I went back to the Capital to take a more realistic shot of what it might look like for me fright before midnight on September 12th.

I think you smile is even bigger in the second picture and you look beautiful in that light! I'm so glad you had a great trim and you and Nat are inspiring me everyday. Great work getting through the tough winter months!

Nat said...

Love the second picture too. It gives me goosebumps.

Yes that second pic is much more flattering....LOW LOW LIGHT is key now.

LOL, despite the dark, I believe there may be a lot more light when you finish IMmoo. Can't wait to volunteer and cheer for you!
