I've been doing a bit of pruning in my life and as it seems, it hurts. But once the cut occurs, the healing begins and the peace sets in. Amazingly, a new sense of freedom fills the void left behind by the pruning. And then I know that all is right.
Today completes my first full week of Ironman Texas training. It has been fun to get back to the swimming and leaving my comfort zone, tried mountain biking today. On Wednesday I was able to get a 5K in for Heart Rate Training purposes and establish zones for the next 25 weeks of training.
I plan to run another time trial this week to double check my numbers as my Garmin chest strap has not been very reliable. A new one should arrive sometime this week.
Week two of training will need to be tweaked a bit to allow for closures at the Y due to Thanksgiving. Spin classes are canceled and the evening pool times have changed. Knowing what I have to get in this next week makes it easier to adjust the schedule for the entire week.
Puppy Rosie is growing bigger every day. She has been with us 4 weeks already. She has come a long way on her leash training and can "Sit" very well. She still has some work to do in the "potty-training" department, but we see hope that in the next few weeks, she will be trained completely.
