Sick Sick Girl!

Wow!  I was not expecting a stomach virus over the weekend but that is exactly what I got.  It wasn't even the weekend just Sunday night.  Needless to say I swapped my running shoes for a garbage can beside the bed this morning.  Things just seemed to workout right.  Last week we decided that we were not going to run on Monday morning because of other plans and I am so glad I didn't have to bail on my running buddies, but there was no way I could have run this morning.  It actually took me until about 3pm  to feel better.  But now my stomach bug is gone, and I'm back! 

Today was supposed to start my hardcore training for my 2 big events coming up.  I already told you about the record breaking world record half marathon time that I want to achieve.  Otherwise known as 2:15! But I am also in training mode for my first triathlon.  I have been working very hard on my swimming portion of the race, I am ready for the running portion, but I have not yet mastered that whole bike part.  I have given away so many bikes over the year because I hate riding the bike so that is obviously the part I need to work on.  I have spent a lot of time on the stationery bike at the gym but I have not yet tried it out on the open road.  Well today I finally asked a friend who I know is going on vacation if I could use her bike for a few days before I purchase one that is very expensive and hate it.  She agreed so I will get to ride a real bike for a few days to get a feel for it and know what I want out of a bike, and if I still hate it I can rent one for the big day and never have to ride it again.  I want to do a tri sooooo bad, its on my bucket list for this year and I am going to have to get ready.  I really want a sticker!

Ok, maybe that one is a bit inappropriate so how about this one....

That's Better!  It's all about the sticker!

So my training schedule for the tri is on my fridge door and my running faster plan will hopefully all that training will help with my speed for the half.  These are 2 very big goals for me and I hope I can achieve them both.  I am way more nervous about this triathlon thing because I don't know what to expect. 

That's really all I have for you guys today because up to this point I have done nothing but try to stay very still and get completely well.  I think I'm all better now but I don't want to chance anything.

Hey, and don't forget.  The giveaway for the Bondi Band ends on Wednesday so go and enter now!
