Alright my run training has been non-existent and it's killing me. I did a 5k off the bike on Sunday and my legs were so tired I felt like I was going to collaspe a mile in. I have more pressing things going on in my life but have I become that lazy that I can not devote an hour or two to running every other day? I try to wake up early but the snooze button is sweet. I try to go after class but I'm just exhausted and besides I need to research...which that doesn't happen...stupid facebook...stupid aim....spent half the night talking to a friend whom I taking to her commencement ball at Salve.
April 15 I have to throw down coin for my cap and gown...Professor 1 is getting me a grade...gotta iron out things with professor 2 and the anthropology department...same time I have to NOT FAIL...anything this semester...and I'll graduate...then start the "oh shit" process of getting into a Post Bac. Science program and then medical training....then hopefully get my little white coat...and work until I drop dead....or pay off my debt what ever comes first.
April 15 is also the date I find out if I made Kona via the lotto and the date entries open for Ironman New Zealand 2010...and oh yeah payments for HEAT uniforms are due.... and a little thing called tax day...wait I already filed...cross that off the list.
I seriously need to run...if nothing else to clear my mind. So after work my 8 mile loop and I are getting reacquainted. Saturday is supposed to suck weather wise so I'm thinking a 8 miler then as well...figure it'll be better to run in the cold and wet then to ride in the cold and wet. I need to rebuild my base because I want to head into Patriot and Providence with a better run leg than last year. A 1:47 is ok...but when there are guys capable of pulling 1:27's I need to get down into the 1:35 range... My swim has always been my savior, I lose some time on the bike and the run is hit or miss, I manage to catch some of the uber bikers, but get annihilated by the fast kids..so it equals out...I'm solid, I'm consistent, I just need to be faster, especially for the goals I want to achieve.
Well that's it for me.
Back to the grind.
