Getting Caught up

Wow. I haven't posted in 2 Weeks! Its been a crazy couple weeks. Ill highlight the best and worse here:

1. I ran the Tipp Hill Shamrock run 30 sec faster than last year leading me to a 34:21 time for 4.1 miles. Ill take it! I would've liked to see this time drop a little more but hey, little by little I am getting faster.

2. I had a terrible strain after a speed work out and had to get Depo Medrol to the tuckas...yes that f'er hurt! I never acted like a baby so much in my life! I was even sweating with the thought of getting something injected into my butt. But then, I like to do it to my patients...ha ha! So I took it and was fine afterwards but I let my nurse know she hurt me for a few days afterwards!

3. I have been out on my bike a few times outside since this weather has been great in Central New York. We reached a few 80 degree temps in March! Now its rainy and cold again..brrr

4. I am definately enjoying my Masters Swim session at the local YMCA. Most of us are triathletes and love talking about the upcoming season.

5. Yesterday marked the First training run for the infamous Mountain Goat 10 Mile run that is every weekend up until race day which is the 1st weekend in May. I have to say my training run yesterday was faster than my race time last year, so I am very optomistic about this race. I have been really working on my weakness which is the running part. I want to grab that bronze medal for being under 90 min on this race and I think I can pull it off.

6. I have decided if I want to pull #5 off I need to drop a few more pounds to be lighter up the hills. Clean eating is what its all about

7. My daughter got accepted into the elite gymnast level which means competitions, more training for her. She is only 8!! Im so proud of her and her accomplishments! I cannot wait to see where she will take this. Although she wants to do triathlons as well, she is looking forward to her backward handsprings and uneven bars more

8.  I have come to find out I must have the tightest hamstrings of any athlete I know. I think thats why my piriformis has been acting up. Now is not the time for my body to fall apart. I did take a few days off of training to rebuild and repair my body. Sometimes you have to do that!

9. I do not really care for the IronMan Perform Powder drink, but I love the premixed fruit punch. What does everyone else use? I used to use hammer, but Im getting sick of the flavor.

10. I have been signing up like a mad lady for races as this triathlon thing is getting huge! All the races are sold out!!! Whaaa!

Hope everyone has been enjoying there training!!! Happy and Safely!
