After moping around the previous week, I found something to give me a little more inspiration for the week. Everybody has something: a song, movie, and even a little object to get them out the door.
For me it was this little object I had put away for safe keeping. I had bought this item at the IMooo expo. It was gift for my 4 yr old daughter, I thought she could think of me when she wears it (a fathers wish anyway).
So after giving it to her, she said the usual,
"It's nice, I want to wear it".
So after 20 minutes,
"Daddy I want to take this off".
Well I guess it lasted longer than I thought it would.
So after wearing it awhile I put it away. So one day I decided to put it on again. Putting it on again has somehow, in its little way, helped me pick up my feet again and get me out the door a little more each day.
So this week has been a good one, nothing fancy, just trying to tell my body to wake up after its slumber:
Treadmill running 3x's
Bike trainer 1x's
Mountain biking 0x's (icy conditions)
Trail running 1x's
Falling on my ass while Trail Running 2x's
Tylenol after getting home 2x's
Thanks for everybody's advice from my last post. It is the time just to get out there again, no structured training plan and trying to stay in zone 2 during training. So that is my plan until January 01 2007.
Still undecided about a coach thou. I know I need to break-up my 2007 season into a UltraRunning and IronMan training program. There becomes the problem concerning a coach, trying to find one with experience in both is quite a dilemma for me.
But I'm committed in pushing myself (endurance wise) for '07 and complete a 50 miler UltraMarathon and IronMan race.
So at least for me, I know it has been done before and that is all I need to know. Hopefully along the way get a little faster and PR some races.
Now if I can just stay away from those tasty pastries.
