Today, I dealt with bad news with a huge fudge brownie and a moderate-intensity workout, but with increased distance in the pool. I'll be amping up the workouts and cutting down on the chocolate in the future, because while the brownie tasted really good, I felt pretty gross afterwards.
I met my half marathon training buddy for lunch today. We're planning out the 2009 race schedule and I'm investigating different types of training plans and logging systems. It's good to know I'll have something to keep me focused (or obsessed) and healthy during what's going to be a very difficult time for my family. And the muscle definition I'm bound to get out of the next several months will be pretty impressive. So bring it on, I've got new goggles and I'm ready for everything!
