J is for

Julie and all kinds of stuff....

For $25 Aflac Iron Girl will put together a video of you during the
race. The other day they sent out a quick clip that would appear in the
video. The one they sent me shows me running more like trotting at
the run turn around. It was not pretty and I would probably pay more
then $25 not to have seen it.

I had a friend join me for my long run this past weekend. It was so nice
to have someone to keep me company. I was amazed that I was even able to
keep up a bit of a conversation while running, not something I ever
thought would be possible. We completed 9 miles 7 of them were actually

This last week I hit 25.2 miles running. The most I've ever run in one
week. Now considering in the not to distant past I've had months that
barley reached 25 miles I feel really good about this.

Just 32 days until the Rock n' Roll 1/2 marathon.

I have such a hard time trying to get myself to do any strength
training. Do you find you either like cardio or strength training? Seems
to me people are generally drawn to one or the other. Me I prefer
cardio. I've been thinking that maybe I will try to do some Jillian
DVD's in the morning to get in some strength training.

I'm planning to do some riding this weekend with a friend. It's been so
long since I've just gone on a nice easy ride maybe stopping for coffee
or lunch and just generally having a nice relaxing time out on the bike.
I can't wait!

I really need to jump back in the pool. It's been weeks, in fact I don't
think I've swam since the last tri.

I just wanted to send out a really big thank you to all of you that take
the time to stop by and find out what is going on in my life. I
appreciate the encouragement and advice that you take the time to give.
It means a lot to me.

Nice week of running-25 miles! Awesome!
Cardio-v-strength? I'm lucky to get both in the same workout using my bells!
