I've been keeping a running tally of workouts skipped in my preparation for IM Canada. I'm trying to prove to my type A, OCD self that skipped workouts do not equate to a bad race. In fact, I have a hunch that I will race better if I allow myself to be more flexible and skip some workouts. My friend Leslie asked me to show her and her kids around Tilden Park today. I've known Leslie since we were writing Aristotle essays together in the seventh grade. I decided to make it a family affair and have the knee-biters come up for a two-day vacation with their uncle. It was a bit surreal to sit with Leslie, 25+ years later, as old farts with kids. As much as I love the knee-biters, I am happy to be able to trade them back for my training. I'm definitely fired up for the 6 AM masters swim workout tomorrow.
I'm basically interested in all things funny, health and triathlon related, and sustainable living. This blog used to accompany a website I built to raise awareness about cancer as well as raise money for different causes.
