Weekend workouts

Well I missed a Friday already for the Friday photo...so I guess that's done. :) I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I think it is the time of year. I'm not ready for cold and dark. I will miss the summer. I've had such a good time this year with all the training for the triathlon. The long bike rides with friends.

Well I didn't make my goal to get to the pool twice this week, but I did get there today. I didn't work to hard at it but I did get wet. :) I started my workout by doing a 1/2 hour on the stationary bike and then on to one hour on the treadmill for a slow easy run. I moved to the pool, but only swam a few easy laps for 20 minutes. It did feel really good to be in the water. I have got to find the time to get it in so that I can work on my breathing. I have so far to go before next spring. I plan on getting some swimming lessons in here some time also. Just not sure when. Maybe after the first of the year. I want to continue to work on my strength training with the trainer class for a few months. I do think I'm on track to increase my running mileage, although I would have liked a longer run this weekend.

I'm excited about next weekend and volunteering at the Denver Marathon. I've never been to a marathon before, in fact I've never been to any race that I haven't run in and I've only run a few. I hope I am able to spend some time at the finish line seeing some of the people cross and cheering. My duties will be in the food tent, so I'm sure to see most everyone I would think.
