As part of the "welcome back to medical school" week, the sadists that are the med-school higher-ups decided it would be fun to have us take a 230 question exam that covers everything that we are GOING to learn this year (not that we already know, that would be too practical). So according to my scatter-brain, the exam was at 12:30. Colleen confirmed that the meeting time was 12:30 and it started at 1:00. No problem.
So I go super early, meander up to the test rooms at 12:15 and see the rooms full of people taking the test.
Did I mention this is going to be a very long year?
Um, yeah. The test started at 12:00. And of COURSE my computer speaker was on full blast so I announced my late presence to everyone with the last names S-Z.
I think this was the gist of it:
Hello, my name is Jodi. If you're lucky, I'll be on a clinical rotation with you, and relieve you of the stress of being that girl.
But I have a good excuse for being scatterbrained. An evening of AMAZING cycling and even BETTER wine last night... and a 4:45 am wake up call to go swimming!
Went out with my faithful Ironman cycling buddies, and had such a fun 40 miler. It was rolling terrain, and there were a couple people out that were weaker cyclists than me (that never happens). So we would ride for 5 miles or so and then wait and regroup. And you know what? I was able to stay with the front pack almost the whole time! The rests really helped to recuperate, but it felt so great to go FAST and short. I am loving this no training thing.
We stuck around for burgers and wine afterwards and let me tell you something... I used to think that I liked wine. But I have NEVER had wine of the caliber that I've had at Lanny's. Wow. I have been inspired to go on cycling tours of France and Italy and California! Any takers?
Then it was an early wake-up for masters. Got the pleasure of swimming in piss water today. Felt like a freaking hot tub by the jets. That's always a joy. But at least the set was fun. Not quite the same without Lanny, since he is out of commission since the Epic ride with a shoulder injury. Lets all keep our fingers crossed that it won't require surgery!!!
And one more thing...
I've been using a google site traffic monitor. One cool thing about the program is that you can map how people find your site. 13 people found my blog by searching google for Jonnyo . Why was this, you ask? Well, because Jonny earned the title of Canadian Long Course Triathlon CHAMPION last week. Yay Jonny!
