Time crunch!

So it seems hard to find the time to even look on the internet, let alone manage a post. I have been doing some quick browsing of my peeps when I have a minute but have rarely even taken the time to comment.

However, that does not mean I am still not trying to find time for training. First off I am proud to say that after more than a month off of swimming I hit the pool today for the first time at the new gym!!!! Aghh, 25 yards is way better than 15!!! Perhaps now I know what is up I will start to swim again on a regular basis...which I really really need to do!

Other than that, it has been some decent runs, spinnning classes, and weight training. The new gym had 2 free trainer sesssions so I took advantage of that. The trainer had me do a bunch of weight lifting which really got my heart rate up. I could really tell that I worked some different muscles and have been a good sore from that. I find it totally awesome to just get different folks perspectives on some different routines. I will definitely try to incorporate a few ideas of his.

Oh the duathlon last Saturday, I felt as though I was still not yet quite recover ed from the marathon as I was somewhat fatigued the entire time it seemed. It was a 2 mile run, 13 mile-ish bike, 2 mile run. My splits were 14:39/ 45:10/ 18:08-total 1:17:57. So not too bad. Finished 1 of 2 females. 9 of 15 overall.

In a hurry at the moment as usual as we are having huge Halloween bash thus weekend and heading out the door to shop.

Hi - suggestion for IT band (well it's worked for me).... if you've not got one I suggest to get yourself one large foam roller... mine is about 6-8inch diameter and about 2 foot long. You should be able to get them over the internet from physio type suppliers, sometimes good sporting suppliers too. Not only can you get a good self massage from rolling your ITB on it but I find it great for back and hammies too. Hope that helps - and well done on your Marathon time, fantastic - particularly given POPs!

You amaze me again with your duathlon race 1 week after running a marathon. I don't know how you have all that energy. I know you're stronger than this little weakling. lol.
