It felt GOOD

Tri class today, 6.30am, I was actually on time, normally I am a good 5 to 10 minutes late, not today. We swam and ironlady said i was looking good. I was out of breath FAST. We went to spin which was fine, although I could tell I did not have the same UMPH I normally have. Then we ran on the treadmills, she told us to run for 2 miles and increase speed every quarter mile. Of course I hear this and I think ok what speed should I start at ?

My normal running occurs with NO other activities before (like no swim and no bike), and I usually do 3 miles at about 10 minutes to min/miles. So where do I start ??? I started at 5.5 (10 is 6.0) I increased up to 6.50 or 6.7 I can't remember b/c I was concentrating on not passing out. Seriously, I was so out of breath and just had that mantra I CANT DO THIS, in my mind and I hate that. I feel like that is when you need mind over matter. I of course would have passed out before I quit b/c that is me and especially with ironlady running right next to me.

I feel great that I did it and I am done. Thinking I will try for body pump class tomorrow and plan out the rest of my workouts for the week. Loving being back to the gym.


  1. Oh my goodness I wish I had a class like that to go to :) I am so jealous. I do all my training on my own and make it up as I go along.

  2. nice getting back at it;-) I'm currently mustering up the motivation to get my run/bike done this am;-)

  3. Wow, sounds like a mini tri every time you meet with the Ironlady! Awesome job!

  4. Good job and yay for feeling good.

    I use sporttracks (freeware) and like it better than the software that came with my 205. Look it up :D


what are you triing
