All I see is the eye of a woman that smiles alot!!! That is beauty!!!!! Like your garden much better now! hahaahaha I have spiderwebs in my house and I have vowed not to dust until I can go for 10 miles...I think I might have to pay my daughter to dust my house because this is gonna take awhile. I just did my first ever 7.2 miles...thought for sure that last mile was going to kill me but I made it....slow slow... hour and 1/2 but at least I did it. I have been assured that I should work on endurance and keep working on sprints for my speed and it will eventually all come together...I hope soon because I am already 42. However, considering a year and half ago I weighed 289 I guess I should be grateful for the progress I have made. A year ago I was still just walking. Have a good cross training day. Tomorrow weight training and 5 1/2 miles for me. My foot and ankle hurt so I am babying it and stretching it like crazy!

Hi Susan
Thanks for your comment on my blog about my training plans.
I'm training for the danskin triathlon - women only - so great for the first time out. It's in Sandy Hook NJ on September 18th and boy am I nervous. I want swimming lessons as my birthday present this year - I really need to learn how to swim properly - I look like a victorian lady with my elegant breaststroke : )

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be seeing other than a sparkling eye! October 9 seems ages away - so how long did you say you've been training now? As for speedwork - I do a mixture of intervals or races.

For example, the other week I did a 10min warmup then 3 x 3km (4.8 miles?) at 10km (16mile?) pace, followed by 10min cooldown.

Another session - Yasso 800s.
basically with this one, if you want to run 4hrs for the marathon (I have no idea what you want to run - this is just an example) then in this session - you run a series of 800ms (or yards for non-metric people!) in 4mins with 4mins slow recovery jog in between. Start with about 4-5 and increase by one each week until you are doing about 10-12.

And a Garmin GPS watch is worth every cent I paid for it! I love it!

ps I'm not very good at converting metric measurements to miles - so would double-check those distances!
