I think about the firefighters in Prescott that lost their lives fighting a fire up there in order to keep homes and families safe from the danger.
As I sit at my window blogging about how I want to complain about my lack of training my focus seems to be on the gratitude of the monsoon. Even though it makes for a challenging training schedule, it is needed and I welcome it to Arizona.
I am reading several books off and on and one in particular mentions training in all kinds of weather conditions so that you are ready for anything. I need to remember this as I have a tendency to say "it's too hot right now", "it looks like it may rain", "it's too dark", or "it will be getting dark soon" and the one I often tell my self "it is too windy". Well, now it is time to buck up little camper and train, regardless of condition. I am certain that I will have more satisfaction training regardless of the weather than I would just sitting at my desk or in front of the TV.
I had a wonderful week last week with friends in town and that also lend a few excuses but now it is time to get back into the routine.
Today I hope I can get a mid-day swim in during my lunch hour. Tomorrow I will be meeting some friends for hopefully a 6 mile run. Here we go....
