So I am a bit behind, and it's just time to just pull it together and post!
Things are good here!
I saw the Dr. on Thursday, and he said, "it's time to train for your Ironman."
So, I am doing it.
I did a great trainer session on Thursday, and Saturday I rode 30 windy hilly miles on my own, and ran 9 miles on the real ground (no treadmill) on Sunday with my mom! So, it begins! 9 weeks and 5 days!
It will not be my fastest, but with the conditions of the race, it never was going to be my fastest. But I feel like I AM going to be able to do it. Time to start visualizing the finish line and the finisher's store ;-)
So, Trakkers--is AWESOME! Updates abound!
First off--my shoes:
Since I have actually been training, I have been running in these puppies, and I love them! They are not as cusion-y as the shoes I had been running in, and I was worried. But I really like them a lot. They just work! They feel like they make sense on my feet, and they give me what I need without overdoing it. I am a happy little camper in them, and they look good ;-) I hand all of my shoes over to my mom when I done with them. She liked them too, and she knows that they will turn into her shoes in a few months!
I also received this awesome box of SBR sports. Awesome. I seriously love this stuff. Can I just focus on my current favorite thing in the box?
This glorious little can rocks my world. I chafe a lot. Seriously. I have to use some kind of anti-chaffe stuff for every bike ride and every run. This stuff is a spray. That is awesome, because it is SO much less likely that I am actually miss a spot. I must say that I really love this stuff.
You guys know I am sponsored by these guys, just so you know :-)
I should be getting a new schedule pretty soon, and I am excited to get into it (cautiously of course!).
Allright--that was the beginning of a catch up--I'll actually be back soon!
