Um I'm an expert? When did that happen?

The Base has just stood up a triathlon team - woohoo for some group training and some stroke correction (get that shoulder doing what it is supposed to do).

I was asked by the club president (she is a friend) if I could bring in my race gear (wetsuit, bike, etc) so people could see the kind of gear involved. No big deal, right?

We ended up having around half the team show up (so, around 10) and they had some really good questions and seemed really keen. One also told me that he has been given my name by a few different people on the Base to talk to about triathlon.

I just love to know when I became this 'expert'!

Speaking of triathlon, off to go do a run...can't wait for spring and some warm weather, the treadmill is starting to wear thin.

Busy, busy

Still here, still training.

Temporarily off of swimming due to some shoulder tendinitis but things are on the mend.

Running and biking are going well, doing some HR stuff above my aerobic threshold (yahoo!).

Hypo Half is at the end of next month, which means that I get a two hour run this weekend - haven't decided whether it will be on the treadmill or outside. I will have to see what the weather is like (it is supposed to be nice) and what the coach wants me to do.

Now, if I could just get my diet in order (not too much 'bad' stuff, just too much in general) I would be happy ;)

Holiday indulgences have caught up with me...

And now I have a sinus cold. It hit just in time for New Years - too much, food, wine, lack of training and lack of decent sleep were too much for the body.

Why do I do this to myself, I know better. Oh yeah, Christmas food is really good, the wine is great and seeing all my family is even better!

Oil of Oregano seems to be helping, but it taste gross (think worse than Buckley's).

New training schedule starts Monday, supposedly giving the upper body a rest while the shoulder (tendinitis) heals up.

Apparently, I get to do some higher heart rate stuff (finally) - I am almost giddy!
