3 weeks later...

Officially in the start of the fourth week of training and I'm feeling pretty good with the exception of swimming. I missed a week of training due to a nasty cold but I'm back in the swing of things.

I have to say, I have some AMAZINGLY generous and awesome friends out there. I've already raised 50% of my minimum! That is super fantastic this early on.

I do have a fundraiser event in the works for early April that should be the most fun you'll have all year. All you locals keep an eye out for more details in the near future...

Went to the Thursday night team swim since I missed Tuesday. I did NOT like that. Bad parking, too many people and too late at night. I'll definitely be going back to the Tuesday morning team swim and then my solo swim on Thursday morning at my gym. I struggled a bit having missed a week of swimming but also because I was still stuffy. I hope Tuesday will go better.

Had a great run on Saturday with the team. It was 3.1 miles and I felt really good for all of it. Our pace was slow (L1/2) but that's what helped me run almost the entire way with out any stops except for traffic. I also kept a very even pace for the entire run which is usually really hard for me but obviously it helps... Pacing for the win!

Sunday afternoon I went for 70 minute bike ride and that was after volunteering at the Heart Breaker Half Marathon in the morning (6am-10:30am).

The rest of the week looks like this:

Mon: Rest!! Yes, I'm still in my pajamas.
Tues: Team Swim in the am, Track work out Tues night
Wed: Solo run 35-40 minutes
Thur: Solo swim
Fri: Rest
Sat: Team Training: 17 mile bike followed by a 10 minute run
Sun: Solo run 35-40 minutes (Tempo - 5 sec)

Are you jealous yet?

I am! Although, I see how hard you're working and I think I'd better stick with biking and walking. You are doing an admirable job. Keep the updates coming. Go Team!!
