Ironman Training - More Hills - March 1, 2014

This is what my Coach emailed me: 

"I know...this cold is really terrible.  at least tomorrow will be more "mild" ;-)  I adjusted your schedule for the weekend."

So I prepared myself with Foot Warmers and Hand Warmers and had 5 upper layers, 2 tights, gloves and socks for the gloves.  As I headed out the door, I was thinking it was a nice day regardless of the temperature.  It was sunny!

As usual, it was another run with hills, and this time I headed towards Avalon to see how the trails were.  The manicured section by the pond was actually shoveled and no ice was on the path.  That was interesting until I ran over to the trail-trail section that was iced over and for about a mile, I navigated the mounds and sheets of ice which slowed me down.  I was so looking forward to getting out of there.  So my feet found pavement again and I went up and down the hills of my neighborhood, listening to the emptiness, occasionally counting my steps and losing count...

What I love about endurance distances is that you have time not to thing about all the craziness that happens in life, you get to think of all the opportunities and possibilities that you want in your life.  Today's run revisited an Awesome Idea that I had about 6 months ago, and I sort of forgot about it.  Now I am going to take action!

Stay Tuned to Change the World for the Better!
