Ok, so surgery is officially over. I have mixed feelings about that. I am convinced that I can finally tell people I know what I want to be when I grow up. And I'll miss it dearly... but the 100 hour weeks I can live without for awhile. So now I'm on family medicine... strict 9-5 M-F with half days on Wednesday. Tough life!
Yesterday I got back in the water and I think that I just might have caught the tri-bug again. It was one humbling experience though, let me tell you. Now I just have to see if I can run. I did a step aerobics class (no heckling from the peanut gallery...) on Saturday with no pain so I think I'm going to hit the treadmill this week. If all goes well I need to pick a 70.3 for next year. Unfortunately Eagleman is closed already. WTF????? So it will probably be Musselman.
My computer is totally FUBARed. It was completely unresponsive for 5 days and now it is deciding that it will turn on again. (it just MIGHT have something to do with the glass of water I dumped on it last year. I can't be trusted with nice things) I went 3 days without checking my email which is a new record for me. So instead of buying a new road bike, my sites are set on a new laptop. I have seen the light, and it is good:
I'm leaving the darkside of Dell laptops (which should really only be used as glorified paperweights. I mean what freaking genius designed the intake for the fan on the bottom of the computer???), and joining the ranks of Apple converts. I can't wait!
I'll be back soon and often to update this month. But I want to give a quick note of congratulations to Charlie for finishing IMUK strong with a huge negative split on the run. Way to go Charlie! Can't wait for the race report.
And the next blog will be a tribute to a good friend who has a little race coming up on Sunday. As we speak, I bet he's carb loading and getting into the freaking zone...
