Sooo, how's my training been going?  Well, it started off with a bang and the first three weeks were fabulous.  I've been swimming two to three times per week, running three times per week, but lagging a bit on the bike rides.  I need to start being consistent with the bike as that will probably be my nemesis at Lake Placid.   Teaching a spin class alone will not get me to the top of Whiteface Mountain!

This week was a bit of a bust with my training.  I only got one swim in, one bike and one run.  I'm not happy about it, but it definitely makes me angry enough at myself to re-focus and get my a$$ in gear for this coming week. 

This has been a challenging year for me already, but I am determined to stay focused and to work through whatever obstacles the universe decides to throw at me.  I have an amazing husband, great friends and family and a renewed hope for what lies ahead.   Quoting from a horoscope one of my best buds sent to me:  "A big change is happening in your life...  this change is building momentum and will bring great happiness, opportunities, and rewards for the karma you have earned."   There's a lot more good stuff it said, but let's just say that, if it's right, I'm going to be one freaking happy camper this year!

...And I was born in the Year of the Dragon so this, apparently, is my year to shine!  Bring it on, I'm ready!
