8 mile Easter

Wow time flies! I've not posted in quite a while. Things got a little crazy around here with. I've been keepin up on my running pretty good. I'm still pretty scared about this 1/2 marathon and that seems to be where most of my focus is lately. I've swam some but not as much as I should be. Hoping to get a little more serious with it very soon. The team actually did there first bike ride today, I was a little surprised that they were training today. I didn't make it but I did do an 8 mile long run. Slow, very slow, like 14+ minute miles, but what the heck 8 miles is 8 miles. It's pretty hard to run around the neighborhood for 8 miles I gotta tell you. I wish I had some scenic place to run. I think I will feel a pretty big sense of relief when it is done. And I can concentrate on the tri training. It is pretty obvious to me that I am never going to be doing more then an Olympic distance tri....I just don't think I'm cut out for this long distance running. I can not in my wildest dreams ever imagine doing a full a marathon. With as slow as I am I would have to devote my whole life to training.

As long as you're having fun and it's working for you I think there's no reason to push beyond that. Knowing the longer distances are out there can push us to feel we have to do it, but it's not for everyone. You're doing so great!!
