Weight I have lost

It's alive!

Yes, I'm still here.

I'm "training" for a 10K. By "training" I mean I look at my schedule and imagine I'm going to run that.

The race is 10/10. So far I have run 2 miles in my plan.
I have missed a 3 miler, and a 6 miler. I'm running (not in quotes) 3 miles after work. The winds are 17mph, so that should be interesting.

So since my triathlon, I have pretty much been sitting here, going "I'm a triathlete." My friend JJ (from last post) is now an IronWoman 70.3. She completed Augusta. I'm not sure her time because her chip came off during the swim. Thus all day Sunday until she posted I was worried something happened to her. But nothing did, and she did terrifically!

Georgia Tech won on Saturday which is why I didn't run 6 miles. I ate lunch at 10AM. Then I drank. Then I went to the game and got poured on. Then I went back to my cooler and drank. Then on the way to the car, I stopped at a bar (I wasn't driving) and drank. Then when leaving the bar, my friend saw someone he knew so I drank. Then friend dropped me off, but not at home but at another bar, so I drank. Somewhere around 9pm I realized I was hungry. So I got tater tots. My beers of the day were Yuengling which I managed to get down a cup of before I realized I was struggling getting this beer down, when I had beer in my cooler to drink, Kalamazoo Stout, Guinness and Terrapin RyePA. Mostly Guinness.

After a cab ride home, I went to bed (D was working all this time). Sunday felt "stellar". In addition to my horrible stomach ache, I got to watch my team, the Redskins, become the laughing stock of the NFL by losing to the Lions. So eh.

Monday, I got up at 5am to run. Took Porter for a walk, completely dressed in my run clothes. I dropped her off at home, and went upstairs and went back to bed. No 6 miles just wasn't in the plan. I have abandoned those miles, and now have moved forward to 3. I WILL do those after work.

In triathlon news, V, D and I decided we would do the Assateague Assault. Until I realized it was in the ocean. With waves. And started hyperventilating. And we haven't even signed up! So now we are looking at Rock the Tri, the Triangle Tri and of course Tri2Remember.

And now we are looking at a half-marathon for the first part of 2010 (Jan-April timeframe).
We have almost settled on the Kentucky Derby Mini-Marathon. But D needs to read some info. He has no internet at work, and sending him info by texting just doesn't seem to convey everything.

This post is totally about nothing.

Glad you are back. Did you do your 3 miles yet? I hope to begin running in the spring and be able to do some 5Ks by summer and take it from there.

You ok? Just because you're a triathlete (!) doesn't mean it's awful you're resting for a while. You've had such a focus and a goal for such a long time..... Stay focused! On what, I don't know. That's up to you.

Yeah, you get to rest a little but get back on that horse!;) I'm ready to sit down for a bit myself. I totally understand!

My husband wanted me to tell you hi (with a knowing head nod) because his team is also the Redskins...On another note, glad to hear you are getting yourself mentally prepped for the next phase. It's going to be awesome, and I can't wait to read your posts.
