St. John's river on the day of the Gate River Run, national 15K championship.
One more thing on the computer that is going to piss my husband off...but I have so many thoughts I would like to save for later, so this has got to be an option for me. I had my S3 class today (explosive training). This is supposed to make me a better sprinter, triathlete, etc. I did find a connection with the purpose of this training today, when I found myself pushing to the end of each exercise, rather than just slowly depleting like I usually do. I visualized the finish line, even though depending on the exercise (like sledding, for example) you can't always see it until you are there. But I kept the image of the finish line before my eyes in spirit...and it really worked. I brushed aside the fatigue and rallied to the end. I have to do this in a race. One of the participants talked about how she was losing weight with this training. I haven't, which is ok; because with all the other activity I have incorporated into my training schedule, I am no longer counting calories.Little epiphanies are probably why I want to blog. So I can grab hold of them later, and with my pseudo-Alzheimers', I need all the help I can get. I am a little bummed I can't do the St. Patty's 10K this weekend, I am feeling strong after just "jogging" the Gate River Run over the weekend. Kids have soccer games, and I musn't be selfish. Although I am so very selfish about my running; it is such an integral part of who I am and who I am still becoming.
