Another good training day! Tough workout at UCSD, today was sprint day. Nice long warm up and then... 8x75 all out @ 1:15. Tried to hold 53 but eventually was 54, 55's. Last one was agonizing. Arms are tired. 4400 yards. Refueled and headed out for a 30 minute run along Torrey Pines. Spectacular weather and beautiful view of the ocean. Was so hot I thought about taking a swim, until the 58 degree water lapped my feet and then not so much. Off to Starbucks, gotta love it and to the gym for some strength training. Last session of core was weak, there I was laying on the mat realizing I was about to fall asleep. Time to go and next thing I was stumbling around Vons looking for food of any kind. I actually ate a banana and then tried to pay for it. The look the checker gave me when the banana peel rolled along the belt was classic. I profusely apologized and offered $1, he was staring at me so I suggested weighing the other banana and charging me for that. Low fuel is not a good thing! Oh and to think it was all self inflicted. Since then I cannot stop eating.....yogurt, bananas, chicken and finally started on the cookies, something has to satiate me.

And then work....right gotta gets some done today. Got my HPN work done and then started on GO TRIbal....exciting project and we hope to launch it soon.

I still need to change the music in my iPod, playlists are too old, memorized them and how did Rockin Around the Christmas Tree sneak on there and why does it play every time I listed.

Procrastinating and decided to read the paper.....So the US is in a major recession, all I hear and read is record unemployment, layoffs, earnings down...and then I log onto and see this headline " Exxon Posts Record 2008 Profit Despite Slip in 4th Quarter" Gee what a surprise, think that $4.50/gallon had anything to do with it.

And before I dogs have the best darn life. Run, eat, sleep, sleep, sleep. If I slept 15 hours a day I would have the same energy they do in the afternoon.


  1. Hi Julie! I came across your blog and noticed that we have almost the exact same race schedule this year.

    My wife and I live in San Diego and are signed up for Oceanside, IMCDA and IMAZ too.

    I'd love to stay in touch and hear how your training is coming along.


  2. Awesome! Absolutely. This weather has been spectacular but I hear it may rain later in the week. Good luck and yes let's stay in touch!
