This morning I had an awesome long run. I got up at 5:15 and had a whole grain waffle with almond butter and 1/2 banana. Then I laced up my shoes and headed out right as the sun was starting to come up. I love early morning runs when no one is out yet and it's quiet and a perfect 55 degrees. I ran down to the bay trail so my views for most of the run were of the bay, SF, Marin, and the Golden Gate bridge at sunrise. Perfectly serene! I'm not gonna lie, my feet were hurting by the last 4 miles, but all-in-all, it was a great 15 mile run to start off the week!
I am so sick of training!!!!!!!! I am sick of swimming and I hate my bike at this point. I had a terrible workout this past weekend - 70 miles of biking into the wind. It took everything I had to not lay down in the middle of the street and hope a passer-by would take pity on me and drive me to my car. I almost cried about 6 times in the last 90 minutes of riding from a terrible mixture of exhaustion, frustration, and disappointment. I didn't even run afterwards, I was so beat. And it was so windy that I only got to use my new aero bars twice for about 30 seconds. I don't think I've blogged about them yet, so here are a couple pics for those that aren't familiar with aero bars.

Hopefully this week I will have some good workouts that give me confidence that I can finish this thing. But mostly I just can't wait to be done training. Am I there yet?!?!?
