No, I haven't died! I had high hopes to write a nice blog yesterday, but then I did my brick. And I became a couch loser for the rest of the day. So before my 2 hour run and 1 hour swim turn me into a zombie today, I thought I should make a quick post!
Lots to say, so I'll break it down so you can skip over the boring parts ;-)
So I had my endoscopy last week. First of all, Versed is an amazing wonder of modern medicine. I felt wonderful for about 2 hours after the procedure. I think I may have said some really stupid stuff to my roommate, though, but I don't think I want to know...
The diagnosis was erosive gastritis. It is only in the stomach, so that's a good thing. So now I'm taking a proton pump inhibitor, and a ton of iron. I'm on the accelerated track to get my blood counts back up ASAP because....
I'm going to a training camp!
On March 9th I leave to get my royal booty kicked by Paulo Sousa along with Jonathan Caron , Sergio Marques , Zach Ruble, and my wonderful camp roommate Judy . I have promised Judy that I will work my butt off this month so that I can keep up with her on our bike rides. So I have been pushing my trainer rides lately trying to get my strength back. It will help when I get my...
My brand new Cervelo P2SL arrives soon. It's on a UPS truck currently. I already have a name for it. I will introduce you all to Mike Honcho as soon as he arrives. He is really going to distract me from
Writing my thesis
Yes, it is started and I have my final committee meeting tomorrow to set the big date! I have pushed back my goal because of the training camp, so I'm thinking mid-late April now for a defense. I'll keep ya'll posted. I've been getting a lot of motivation from my
He is the one that made me start the damn thesis. I have been putting it off for some reason. Such a lack of motivation. He encouraged me to just get the template and start writing the Table of Contents, and it was amazing- It just started flowing from there! It's great. I have a lot of work to do tonight and my blogging has been suffering because of it, but hopefully you will all forgive me! I also went on the nicest date last weekend. My boss always gives me a $100 gift certificate to the Baricelli Inn , Cleveland's nicest restaurant. It was fabulous as always, and it's a good time to admit that I have
Fallen off the Vegan Bandwagon
I had the free range chicken at dinner at it was "WoW". My docs have encouraged me to add some meat back into my diet, so I've had a bit of chicken the past 2 weeks. I had forgotten how much I love it. Don't hate me, vegan bloggers.
Ok, I have to get ready for my run. A fabulous 2 hour run on the treadmill at school. They don't even have TVs in there. And to make things worse, I have lost the cable for my dinky little 128MB Mp3 player, so I've been listening to the same songs over and over for weeks. It's just wrong. So wish me luck that I don't die of boredom. I would do it outside, but I'm still not quite comfortable with my stomach and I don't want to be 6 miles from my car in case it decides to spring a big old blood leak again. So running on the hamster wheel it is!
