Three things Thursday

1. Back into the swing of things!

I am feeling good about my fitness level and ability again. It's amazing how short a time it takes for you to start doubting it. A week off due to illness after a few weeks of poor quality workouts due to illness and I had started wondering whether I even had it in me anymore. The answer? Most certainly! I'm back to regular running, and I'm making great strides in improving my swim. My weak point? Well, that's number 2...

2. I am once again neglecting my bike

In getting back into training, I've been focusing on 2 areas. My run because I have my half marathon coming up, and my swim because my technique needs so very much improvement. My poor lonely bike has been sitting neglected. I know that the bike is actually the biggest part of the triathlon. So, I certainly can't keep leaving her alone. Having said that, I'm optimistic that Bella (my road bike) will very soon be able to get outside. Heidi (the hybrid) may be hitting the trails as early as next week - if we don't get too much snow this weekend, but that's number 3...

3. In like a lion, out like a lamb

The month of March has certainly been following that pattern this year. I can't complain about the weather this week. It's been beautiful and I've got a few runs in, some walks with the kids and a trip to the zoo. Having said that, this weekend, mother nature is apparently going to teach us that it can still snow in April. There's supposed to be 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) of the white stuff on Saturday. On the plus side, we're still supposed to get temperatures on the plus side of freezing. So, there is a reasonable hope that the snow won't last too long this time.

  1. I am so over the snow and cold. We are actually supposed to have nice weather in Kansas City this weekend, but cooler weather again next week. I'm ready for shorts and tank top running for sure!
