#1 - I had another great track workout this morning. I struggled a little because of the humidity, but I'm still pleased with my performance. Read the details at Dailymile. My body is not used to being up at 4:30 am and working that hard before the song comes up. I'm exhausted, but I know I'll get used to it. This is why I've started now instead of when I have to in June, to give my body and sleeping cycle a little time to acclimate.
#2 - I think I've almost come to terms with the fact that I am not a triathlete: I'm a runner who (occasionally) does triathlons. This is a good thing. I know that seems like a small distention and just semantics, but thinking of it this way helps me focus on running and be ok with not doing any triathlons this season. Swimming has been very frustrating lately, and seems like a chore; biking is better, but it just doesn't bring me as much joy as running. I honestly just want to run all the time. When I'm not running, I rather be working on strength/core or yoga. I'll make running the priority; anything else I'll fit in as time permits for a variety of cross training options. This takes the pressure off and may help me enjoy swimming again. However, I'm already plotting a possible duathlon in June :)
#3 - In less than a week (next Wednesday), I'll be in San Francisco! We are going there to visit friends, take in the sights, and run Bay to Breakers. We also plan to take a Segway tour and visit the various attractions included with the CityPASS. I can't wait!
