It being Sunny in Philadelphia has nothing to do with this post other than I'm watching it now and I am laughing out loud. By myself. Laughing out loud. So funny. I've never seen it before, but I may have to add it to my DVR list.
Today I just went for a run. Someone has been telling me I haven't been running enough and that I will lose all I've accomplished if I'm not careful. So I walked past the garage with my bike in it, and just hit the pavement instead. There were quite a few people out today, but most were walking. I felt pretty good as I took off. I wouldn't say I was pushing myself really hard, but I was definitely giving a little more than my usual going-for-a-little-run mode. And it paid off. My first mile was completed with a 13.25 pace. I was quite happy with that. I kept going, and for the next hour I was happy just to be running, even though the next three miles weren't quite as fast.
I may not be able to go out and run a half marathon tomorrow, but I also don't think it's that far out of reach. I could just keep going if I had to.
It's the bike and swim that I have to worry about.
I signed up for a triathlon swimming class next month. It's every Tuesday and Thursday fr the entire month. They are supposed to teach you proper techniques for a tri so you can preserve your legs for the bike and run portion. Since I've barely done any swimming this past year, I'm sure I need all the help I can get in this area.
Wish me luck.
