This weekend was the TV showing of the Ironman World Championships in Kona. I recorded it yesterday because I wanted to sit down and watch it uninterrupted as possible. This is always my favorite show of the year. I rewind this and count how many times that I rewatch it.

I asked Hubby to watch it with me and Bino also sat in. As usual, I was blown away by the race and the athletes in it. I shed my ususal tears. This year especially it touched me as I am signed up for my first Iron distance in 2009. It met alot to me for my family to watch it with me and share what is ahead for me. I know they knew what was ahead for me but it seemed to touch them also.

My weekend training was good. Saturday, I did not make it to spin but got a 45 min ride in on my trainer. I stayed in zone2 the entire time except when I toppled over into the wall.(Long Story). Today with the near 50 degree weather, I ran 4 miles outside. It felt great to be off the dreadmill even with the high winds.

Not qite sure how training will go this week since work is extremely busy. After watching IM Kona, my motivation is up.

Waddling into another week.............

I love to watch it too! Even though I know who won - I love to hear more of the story. I wish they had more time to tell more stories of the age groupers. Glad you got even more motivated!

We watched it. I mostly didn't cry and fake yawned the part that I did cry at.

How awesome is Chrissie?!?!

I thought of you and wondered if you were watching. :)

I'm using that broadcast as a gentle nudge to Moose that we desperately need (I use the term loosely) a 16:9 flat screen TV.

Nice job on the workouts! You will do this!

Oh, I wish I recorded it. I missed the first half hour but enjoyed the rest and wouldn't mind seeing it a few more times for motivation next year.

Yes, my motivation is up as well. One thing I wish they would STOP doing on the show however is focusing in the opening minutes about all the pain and suffering people go through. Not everyone looks that bad! But what you do get from it is: anything is possible!
