I am an ATHLETE!

It is official!! I am now an ATHLETE! I lost my first toe nail Monday night. My son has swimming lessons on Thursday nights and Master swim is at the same time. So, Mom goes and swims and J is at his lessons. It is a win win situation!  I didn’t really pay much attention to my toe but knew it would be coming off at some point.  He was out of school on Monday, so after my chiropractors appointment we went swimming. I am working on a virtual Ironman challenge with a group on Facebook that I belong to and needed to get some swim time in to meet my 2.4 miles for the month. J did some practicing and he is getting more comfortable in the water. Now to just get him to keep his face in the water. But I am not complaining as of last year he wouldn’t even attempt to put his face in the water. I was able to get in 1600 yards. I should be at my goal on Thursday after Masters swim.

Now the bike is a different story, I haven’t even started on the 112 miles that I need for the month and it is now the 11th. Going to need to set up the trainer and get started.

I just about have the running completed. I checked this afternoon and only needed 12 more miles. I knew that I couldn’t do that many miles today but I was able to get in a 10K before J got home from school.

This was my view on my run today. This was a new route for me and I really liked it. It had several rolling hills that really made you work for it. If I would have followed this trail and made the loop it would have come out to be about 10 miles. So that is my next goal is to do the 10 mile loop when I have more time.

Since it is getting a little cooler and soon to be colder, I need to start looking for winter tights to wear when I run. Just looking for one pair as of right now and really don’t want to spend too much money on them.

I am also looking at what races I want to do next year and getting a wetsuit.
