The shoulder report: I started physical therapy for my shoulder this week. It's definitely hurt and weak. This will be interesting to get all figured out. Wonder if we work this all the way through if my swim speed might increase considering tha... Read more

Checked out SparkCoach today. Not sure how new and fresh it is, but I'm needing to jazz things up, and since the first 2 weeks are free, I figure this will let me figure out if it's useful for me.

Big Thighs and Vegetables

Saturday, August 04, 2012      4 comments

I posted last night about Gabby Douglas and her big thighs. I've had issues with my thighs since I was a teen. I remember reading back then in Seventeen Magazine about how you're supposed to be able to stand up straight with your knees touching ... Read more

Gabby Douglas Has Big Thighs

Friday, August 03, 2012      7 comments

I think Gabby Douglas is stunningly beautiful. Her body moves in exquisite ways that mine will never achieve. Proportionally her thighs are big to her waifish body. She has... Read more

My Shoulder Hurts

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      4 comments

For a few months, I've had a low level pain in my right shoulder. I thought when I made a radical improvement in my swim form, that would take care of it, but it's still going on. It's related in part to a deformed neck vertebrate causing pinchi... Read more

Planning this weight loss thing

Monday, July 30, 2012      7 comments

Okay, I don't get to just crash and lose a bunch a lot of weight fast. Because I'm having too much fun doing this athlete thing now. That makes the approach different. I need to fuel for my physical exertions and not to pull too many calories ou... Read more

I did my 2nd sprint triathlon yesterday. First one was a year ago June. Yesterday was a sprint course which means 800m swim, 14 mile bike ride, and a 5K. I've had a series of shorter distances in the last couple months which set me up really wel... Read more

"I really enjoyed hanging out with you- you are simply glowing with life!" That was part of an email from a friend today. Lovely timing since today marks 4 years into my Spark journey. My life is radically different from 4 years ago. Back t... Read more

Thinking about my 2013 Racing Goals

Monday, July 23, 2012      4 comments

It takes my brain awhile to figure out what I want, so I've started noodling on what races/events I want to join in for 2013. Downside of starting now is most races aren't officially public for their 2013 dates, so I'm just having to make guess... Read more

Training is Making Me Faster!

Monday, July 23, 2012      9 comments

I'm at a pretty cool place physically right now. My body is suddenly capable of going faster for longer times than it used to be able to do. I ran a 5K at under 10 minute/mile pace (after a 1500m swim) earlier this month, and yesterday I ha... Read more

Monday, July 16, 2012      7 comments

Saturday I rode my bike 18 miles and ran a 5K afterwards. My fastest 5K with me staying under 10:30 min/mile the whole way. Today I did an easier shorter ride, only a little over 10 miles, and again I followed up with the same 5K distance r... Read more
