Chilly Central Park this morning

There was a lot going on this morning. I headed up to 77th Street for an 8:20 start. Checked in with my winter season Miami team (as a coordinator) and handed off some info before walking over to the park with my spring season half ironman team (as a participant!) and doing one hour and 16 minutes. The plan from the coaches was 3x up Harlem Hill and then sprint repeats across the 102nd Street transverse for about 20 minutes. I was sloooow and my breathing is not right yet, but I did it. 1 hour and 16 minutes and 7.02 miles. Back to 77th to check in with Miami one more time and see some Fall Season alum and then down to 63rd for a recruitment meeting! Whew. Now I'm off for a swim since I missed my swim yesterday. If only Rock of Ages didn't pay me so much to stand around for 3 hours. ;)

Wish me luck!

The New year.

Seems I wrote a post with this title last year :)
But it's a new year once again and I've got to getting on the training train fast! Official TNT training started before Thanksgiving, but I've admittedly been slacking and that has got to stop! So I'm trying hard to stick to the schedule and it was going okay, until this morning.

I had signed up to run the Fred Lebow 5 miler. And I overslept. Didn't hear the alarm at all. Woke up when the dog started barking in his sleep.

But I'm tracking my activity on in an effort to feel more accountable. Wish me luck!
