But as of Monday, I'm back on track and feeling strong. I had a fantastic swim on Monday night and another one tonight. I went for a short run last night and followed it up with some strength training. My friend talked me into doing an ab challenge for the month of May, which is something I really need. I think my core strength is non-existent.

I'm trying hard not to focus too much on the scale and focus more on getting strong. I'd like to be able to toe the line at the See Jane Run Triathlon in October weighing quite a few pounds less - after all, it will make getting up the hills easier. But more importantly, I want to be stronger.
I'm at the point where I'm not worried about covering the miles. I know I can swim the distance, run the distance, bike the distance. I've already biked and run the course at the duathlon last year. It would be nice to do it faster this year. And I think if I focus on getting stronger, the speed will follow.
