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.

Cardiac Clean
March 19, 2007

Hey, Hello everyone!!!!

Well, I went for my cardiac testing on Friday. Wow!, What a Setup.

I would recommend this test for anyone that needs a screening for heart disease. The amount of detail that they can see on the heart is absolutely awesome. I will be getting pictures on a disk and will post some of them as soon as i receive it.

As far as my cardiac condition - my arteries are completely clean. Fit as a fiddle. Thanks to endurance and triathlon training my heart is very strong. My heart rate during the test was around 54. The tech told me that on an average person - it usually takes the contrast (dye) 20-25 sec to reach the heart from the arm where the IV is. It only took 6 seconds for the dye to reach my heart - pretty awesome. All in all, this test is worth it.

I did no training on Saturday - took a rest day and worked around the house. Saturday night I was awakened with a sudden urge to hurl. Yes, I had some sort of GI bug. At times coming out one end or the other. Sunday morning I felt queasy but a little better and decided not to miss my ride. SO I mounted up and did 25 miles. After all that biking I guess I must have pushed all the nasty stuff down. I slept great last night. Best night's sleep in a while.

This morning I was in the pool early. I did some drills and sprints. I swam several 100's, several 200's and finished with a monster 600 yard interval. Felt good to be back in the water. Tomorrow I will probably not get in a bike workout due to an appointment. But, I may be able to pick up my bike rack that I want. I am definitely a Tri-Geek. Look out world!!!!!!
