I am going to make several commitments here.  I am just putting them here because I feel accountable for doing what I say I am going to do if I post it here.  So here goes:
  • I started training today for my first triathlon of the year (June 28)
  • I am going to actually do what is recommended as far as training...
  • like, doing what I HATE - weight training
  • And strengthening my core
  • I am going to follow a plan that was posted on the Tri for the Cure website
  • Today I started a new food plan
  • I have been eating like the last days of Rome ever since I finished P.F. Chang's.
  • That has to end, and it has to end now.
  • I am planning on 2 triathlons this summer - the Danskin and the Tri for the Cure.
  • I am tentatively planning on a half-marathon in September (Boulder Backroads)
  • I am going to post here at least 2 times a week because you guys motivate and entertain me!
OK.  That is my commitment.  Today I got my bike out for the first  time since August.  I forgot what it was like to pedal a bike up a big honkin hill - against the wind - in 35 degree weather.  It was cold.  And more of a work out than I remember.  

But it was beautiful to be outdoors on a sunny (albeit cold) Sunday morning.

good job getting out on the bike. i'm entertaining the idea of a reverse sprint tri in early april. I'm going to have to get my rear in gear if I'm going to do it!

Happy training :o)
