I started running in January of 2004 to get in shape. I had gained too much weight and felt terrible. I was able to run my first 5K 3 months later. 2 years later and 50 lbs lighter, I have continued to push for greater goals and have run 5 marathons and I am training for an Iron distance triathlon now. Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude towards life, training and my future.

Just a Swimming
August 08, 2006
Yeah we'll be swimming, swimming. ( Corny take on a country song)

Back in the water and loving it. However I am dealing with a low back/hip flexor injury from Saturday, and it is really hurting when I try to lift my R leg off the ground. It was caused by my abdominal workout on Saturday night. I was doing great until I did reverse crunches with an 8# ball between my legs. I guess I just overdid.

The injury did not seem to hinder my swimming. Kicking motions and hip movements in the water did not aggrevate it any. Actually I felt better after getting out of the pool. However right now it is hurting pretty good. I will try a bike ride tomorrow and see how my back and hip flexor feels. Tonight I'll put a heating pad on it. I won't be able to train from Thursday to Sunday so I should be able to get let it rest.

Otherwise, I'm feeling good. I'm real confident about the Steamboat Triathlon and looking forward to it. I'm sleeping good at night. Also my weight is coming back down to race numbers again. It's good to be back on my regular diet again. I need to cut about another 5 pounds before Steamboat, but I should have no problems getting that done. Well got to go. CIAO !
