HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY TO ME!

2 years ago, I started this blog with the intention of recording my first marathon training. I was not sure if I would want to keep writing once the marathon was over but I quickly realised that I love to share my training and get feedback from other runners. Friends you make on the internet are valuable. I haven't stopped blogging since I started. I also had no clue that I would meet some fellow bloggers who leave comments here (Kenny, Francis, Shelley, Jelly and Laurel). It always felt like I was meeting old friends. =) I'm looking forward to meeting a new one in Quebec city at the end of August too!!

As far as training, everything is going well and I lost some weight this week so I couldn't be happier!!

Monday: Ride 20K in 47:11 (stationary bike)

Tuesday: Swim 1250m in 33:00, Bike 4K in 13:53, Run 5K 43:19 (With Dad)

Wednesday: Bootcamp video that kicked my a$$... 40 mins

Thursday: Swim 1150m in 30:00, run, Run 5K 42:20 (With Dad)

Friday: Brick workout. Long ride 15 miles in 1:10, Short fast run 1 mile in 9:48!! (woohoo!!!)

You will notice I am kinda undecided and confused in my distances. Sometimes I do it in Km while othe time it's in miles... I am definitely more comfortable for paces in miles but all the triathlon are in Km so I am trying to adjust!

Also, I went to pick up Bijou yesterday (that's my new bike's name!) but she was n't there. =( She got lost in shipping and I went all the way to St-Jerome for nothing. My friend told me he will get her next Tuesday, so I could pick her up Wed or Thurs.... this sucks, I was very looking forward to riding my new bike this week-end! Granny has no retired yet... and my long ride hurt my wrist. boohoo...

I'm off to Ottawa for the week-end celebrating Runningmania.com 3rd anniversary!

Have a good week-end everybody =)

Thanks everybody, it is hard to believe it's been 2 years! Time is really flying.

Tea, once in a while I'll check the same day last year what was going on and I'm always training for a marathon so that depress me a little right now! But it's great to see all that I've accomplished.

Happy blogaversary.

I'm relatively new to the blogosphere but the reason I started my blog is identical to yours. I hope that 2 years from now I get the satisfaction from blogging that you have attained.

Congratulations.
