Osama Update....

The trap is gone....new peppers are planted....yes folks, it looks like Osama has been apprehended! I've requested an update from Farmer George, full details to follow as they become available.

The right knee still asking to be noticed so no running just yet. This is a continuous reminder to pay more attention to my stretching and strengthening. I did 30 mins of upper body weight training yesterday, biked one hour this morning and hope to get in 30 mins of lower body weight training tonite.

I'm dealing with a shoulder strain from the new low position on my bike that is bothering me. I'm trying to pay extra special attention to it this week as I know when I transition from bike to run on Sunday I don't need that kind of aggravation.

I'm also getting my transition "stuff" ready--have to plan out mine and my daughters. Sheila, Mind (Slacker) of Iron, was wonderful to send me her list---but I have to warn those of you that request it from her having never done a triathlon before----she has 173 items on there!! Is this girl prepared or what??!! There are things on there I've never even heard of ( what the freakin heck is a zoomer??) But the sweetheart that she is, she offered to come over to my transition spot and check it all out to make sure I'm not missing anything (did I mention she's doing the same race as me on Sunday?) My first meeting with a blogger!

Now for an advertisement for a special race being prepared by our very own, Jessica--Southern California Trail Running, here's the race link-Untitled Page. I'm thinking of a winter trip out there--anyone else interested??

Well I am looking at a winter one. I thought about going back to Las Vegas. No finals, money, and much needed to be used vaction days. What more can I man want? did I mention 2 women instead of 1?

Biking can be hard on the knees I have heard. I will ask Stephanie tonight if she is there.

Do not forget to taper for your race. Over training can reallyt hurt you take it from me. I do not want you to play the 8 weeks out game. Its too hard to come back

I talked to stephanie. She says youyr knee could come from teh bike so you should stop riding it and give it to me. :) ok but I would diffintely taper this week.

Mike said...

whoa...173 items on a checklist...getting throught that list sounds like more of an endurance event then the race! ;-) I'm sure she has a ton of good advice though- looking forward to hearing about your race.

And poor ole Osama...*sigh*

173 items??? I suppose it is best to be prepared for anything.

You might want to call our government and let them know how you caught Osama.

See, everyone things little rabbits are cute, but they're rotten! Hope he stays away from your garden. Congrats on the weight loss -- keep up the training and the rest will come easy.
