I think she wants to fire me!

Hello blogworld. Yes it has been a few days. Don't you just hate that I have nothing to write about? Yeah I know not really. Just seems fun in my mind to think you missed me.

Well here it is the first time mentioned for the world to know. I have hired a Triathlon Coach. Suzanne Duncan gets the great honor of coaching me to my first Half-Ironman in 2010! Yes you read right, Half Ironman. For my other coach friends oh please don't feel bad, I think I spared you! After my first scolding by email I think she wishes I would of picked another coach and is wondering can she fire me. Poor poor Suzanne! I failed to mention I was a control freak.... small detail

I know, I like to think and train big don't I? I have had so much fun training for the indoor tri that I just thought what the heck. You only live once and God only gives us one go around at this thing called life. So I am going to make the most of it as long as He will let me.

Swimming has finally begun to kick in. No I am not fast and can't swim as long as other people or as long as I would like, but 10 weeks ago I never thought I would swim at all. 10 weeks ago, I never thought I would consider myself an endurance athlete but I am. I start Master's Swim on Thursday and will be swimming twice a week with that. Boy that sounds like fun. 6a.m to 7 a.m.......... Oh please can you have coffee ready.

Training takes on a new look now. So hopefully the blog will be interesting. I am sure Suzanne will be cursed on here often. She might want to start a blog of her own to complain about her clients. LOL! No I really like her and I think her personality is just what I need to get me going. I need help getting going that is for sure. My husband has to help get me out the door in the mornings. So John, on those mornings I yell NO at you I don't want to get up, just push me out of bed and make me do it.

My new moto is "the difference between possible and impossible is determination"! I have the determination, lets just see if I have the ability.

Have a great week and stay tuned for the recap of Sunday's event.
