Yesterday I had many plans, most of which fell through but that's ok.  I did make it to the gym for my circuit training with my trainer.  I didn't have much energy which is strange because I normally do alot better mid day than my evening workouts.  I warmed up on the bike for 15 minutes and went 5 miles which I'm sure is sucky but Tuesday I have 35 minutes on the bike and I will push it to see how I do.  Then 60 minutes of total body circuits.  We did alot of core related work, push ups on a ball which I completely suck at, plank on a ball, 25 reps of vertical thrusts which hurt and some new leg stuff.  I love it when my trainer gets her ass kicked by HER trainer because somehow these things usually show up in my programs.  I'm not complaining though, it's fun to push yourself.  Did I just say fun?

Today I start with a run which I'm still trying to get motivated to do but somehow drinking coffee and surfing BeginnerTriathlete.com is holding more of my interest at the moment.  I will get there though.  My plan says 20 minutes but I'll do 30 walk/run.  No point in going all the way to the gym and just doing 20 minutes.  I found a mentor group on BT which I'm hoping will also keep me motivated.  It's amazing how much of a community this sport is and how so many people are are so willing to help.

I also need to pick up a bathing suit.  There is a sport check at the mall where my gym is so I'll have a wander in there and see what I can find.  If not I have tomorrow off as well and Swim and Sport will be open.  I also need goggles and a cap.

Other than that I have some laundry to get done and general tidying up around here.
