Who am I kidding, two seems so restrictive...
1. We have a (new) winner! THE SIXTH SISTER, come on down you are the next winner of SBM's Book. I hope you didn't rush out and buy it on Amazon yet - because you totally could... right HERE ... but you don't have to because if you email me, I know a certain someone who would love to send you a copy! hit me up at kwhitlock (at) bellsouth (dot) net.
2. Google marks. No cure found yet but... I read something on slowtwitch the other day that was supposed to help get rid of them. The google marks drive me nuts! Mine seem to stay with me for at least 12 hours after I swim and as someone in her 40s, I am not a fan of making myself look older. After my swim today, I sat in the steam room for about 5 minutes. It did not make the marks go away but it reduced them quite a bit. I might have to make this a ritual for those days when I swim at the gym. When I swim elsewhere, I guess I will just have to be proud and eye-baggy :)
2 a. (told ya....) I think I told you I was trying out a group training format this year for my triathlons. So far it has been really good. We did a trainer session together on Saturday, a swim clinic on Sunday and I have to say I have been enjoying having all my workouts planned for me in training peaks. One less thing to worry about.
2 b. Soooooo excited for the Disney Marathon this weekend! It will be my 10th full marathon (if you count the two I did as part of IMs - and I do...). It is also the 5th anniversary of my first marathon which was at Disney on my 40th birthday. The Disney marathon holds a special place in my heart, I love rounding that corner where the choir is singing, hearing the crowd and knowing you are just a few steps from the finish line!
I remember having a conversation with my Dad either right before or after the first marathon. Something to the effect of "I am only going to do one, I can't imagine doing all this training more than once in a lifetime". LOL. Famous last words. I am pretty sure I uttered the same thing about Beach 2 Battleship.
Hope you all are having a great week!
