It's been one of those weeks where I take a nap every chance I get, even if it's 15 minutes. I started school again, and am going a million miles an hour. Plus, my hamstrings have been freakin sore post-Cbad. On Thursday's run I still felt it. I also stayed up past my bedtime Thurs night making dinner & saying goodbye to a longtime friend who's moving to New Jersey to be with his love. Dave and I have been neighbors since we were little punk kids, and though I'm sad to see him leave SoCal, I couldn't be happier for his decision (he has a great girlfriend, keeper for sure).

Meet my ticket to a free place to stay back east:
We cooked some fish with seasoning he brought back from South Africa, yummmm.

One more whiney thing: I kicked the $&%@ out of my two right toes on a lane line Thursday while practicing breast stroke. I swear, it felt like the toes ripped off while I kept swimming. There was blood. And today, they're throbbing in pain! Possibly a broken pinkie toe. Ouch! Man, I suck at different strokes.

So, the point of all my "excuses" is (sore, tired, in pain): I canceled this Friday's workout to save it for the weekend--fun stuff ahead. But the best excuse why I slept in a little and didn't leave time to work out...

I'm heading to San Diego for the Tri Expo. So, if any of you are down there Friday, be sure to say hi!


  1. ouchie on your toes! have a great time in san diego! (p.s. i'm from NJ! it's a great lil state minus the jersey shore!)

  2. Whoa... whoa... whoa... Hold the train. There are other swim strokes?

  3. Take pics of some of the cool products you see there and post them here! It would be so cool to go to the Expo!

  4. Have a great time at the Tri expo. I hope you get some great blog ideas! Sorry about the toes!

  5. Great to hear you went to South Africa, when was that? i am from there and have been here for 5 years now. With regards your hamstrings, you should try out rocktape, you will probably see it at the tri expo. you can also look it up on my website: its designed for triathletes
