Basking in the small victories (Deborah’s latest training update)

Mother Nature won’t get me or the team down. Nope, no way. Freezing rain, snow, wind, hail or ice will not stop us from training.  
Once again, we used the seven-story building as our training playground while the ice storm raged outside. The strength training I have been incorporating into every session is paying off: I was able to take the stairs going up two at a time (unheard of for me). Woo-hoooo! I will bask in the small victories!  
By the end of the hour, I was pleasantly tired and mentally stress-free – that has not happened in a long while. 
I am grateful for this training. Only three more sessions until race day – April 29How did that sneak up so fast?
