January update

Well this month is flying by and I sure wish I could get it back. Oh well that won't happen so I will move forward. My search for a swim coach has ended and already helping. Coach Corey helping me understand that with proper body position and a better kick my swim will be enhanced. Now that I know that I am practicing drills to make these things natural. Someone once told me that knowledge is power. Well I have the knowledge and the power to make a change. The training calendar is being updated to add more swim time to practice the drills to help make these changes. Next week I learn to do the breath stroke, I guess you can teach an old dog a new trick.

The running is on target and I will be ready for the B & A Trail Marathon March 6, 2011. This is not the only race on my schedule however it is the first endurance event of the year. There are six events on my schedule leading up to the Eagleman Half Ironman that I am planning to run with the Maryland Team In Training team. The mission of Team In Training is to raise funds to find cure for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. My goal for this event is $2,900.00 and I am sure that all my friends will help me achieve this goal while I train for success. With your support and my coaches I will be ready to complete the Half Ironman event.

My next post will focus on nutrition and what I am doing to continue my personal fight with obesity.
