sooooome week

I've actually been in town all week, but racing from one thing to the next (sometimes literally). We are now in full-swing training for the Seattle Half-Marathon, which is at the end of November. We are behind schedule as usual. We are increasing our miles every week with wild abandon and suffering the consequences afterwards. I gave a Big Talk for a regional conference on Wednesday, which went well but the practice talks on Monday and Tuesday were awful, and I ended up practicing the talk about 4 million times Monday and Tuesday night - it was painful but worth it. I started swimming lessons on Wednesday night at the Green Lake Community Center and it was fun, but made for a really long day. Then Thursday I was wandering around at work like a zombie. Hopefully today I'll be able to get back to feeling normal. At least I'm blogging again.

WooHoo! Swimming lessons. Does that mean you're training for a triathlon?

Are you giving the lessons or learning to swim yourself??

Glad to see you back!

Fruit, a multivitamin, and a banana a day, will keep the training bogyman away. Soy or milk and egg protein can be helpful, I put raw eggs into my soy protein, I prefer the milk and egg protein, but it's hard to find but it has additional vitamins.

I may have said this before.

arial: not officially, but maybe...

peggy: I'm taking the lessons, they are adult lessons to help improve your stroke efficiency etc.

eric: wow. that soy-milk-egg thing sounds awful.

It's not. Protein powder mixed with juice, and blended in a blender with some ice.. It's a smoothy. adding things to it, can be advanced stuff. The High end stuff is when I make it with Coffee.
