Training Post #1

Friday, August 12, 2011
My daughter hates it that I can make this face and she can't.  Are you jealous too?
First week of training has gone pretty well.  Except for the huge blister on my heel.  And I don't have a bike, and I still need to find a place to swim- and goggles so I can wear my contacts while swimming. (I tend to swim crooked if I don't watch where I'm going.)  So yeah, I'm pretty much a wreck.  But I have made it out most days, and I'm getting faster.  Which is good.
I've also come to a decision.  I'm okay with being the last person across the finish line. (my competitive side just slapped me in the face)  The biggest thing for me is finishing.  Making permanent changes to the way I treat and see my body.  Overcoming fear and doubt and just going for it.  And not dying.  If I can do all of that (especially the not dying part) I will count this adventure a success.
Now, I better go to bed.  I need to run/limp in the morning.
XOXO,
Amy

The hardest step is the one out the door. Great job on starting!!! I'm excited for you. It's definitely all about accomplishment and not competition. I'm so happy that you set this goal. It'll be fun to do it with you.
