Dear God, she has a training calendar!

Yep, I just finished entering my workouts for the next 2 weeks into a training calendar for LA Run buddy and I. This is the first time I have done this since back when I actually was training.

We have been running a little and biking a little and swimming...err... not at all. My coach even told me not to worry about it yet. Hey, she is the professional, so I will put the thoughts of endless, fucking humiliating, masters workouts and terrifying open water swims out of my head and go merrily along running and biking.



Sure, the swim knocked me out of CdA, but I am sure it will all be fine.

Hmm...what was that? Oh, a rainbow just flew out of my butt.

Whatever. At least I am training again.
