Work has been insanely busy, which is good - overtime equals money, after all, but it also means that I haven't got a lot of time to do much else with my life, including biking, running or swimming.

I've gotten a few swims in, but I haven't been running due to a sore Achilles tendon, and haven't been on the bike for almost a week.

Which is super bad, since I have a race in 11 days. 

I'll do the Malibu Olympic distance on September 17, and I feel like I just haven't gotten enough saddle time, but there's not much I can do about it,since I'm not willing to quit my job to finish a few minutes closer to the middle of the pack.

Oh, well.  Just remind me that the purpose of all of this is to have fun. And get a T-shirt. But mainly to have fun.

Also, I got the score of a lifetime at the TriLAB's Labor day sale - TWO DeSoto women's tri tops and shorts for $11 each.

At least I'll look good when the people who actually had time to train blow past me.


  1. Achillies injuries suck. Pretty much ruined my whole season this year. Somethings that I would suggest you start doing, foam roll or use "The Stick" on your calves, Ice the affected side as much as possible, use Rocktape or KT tape when going out for runs/rides, and water jog (I hated it since it was pretty boring). I also heard elipticals are good too. I dunno if it's a mind thing, but I found that my SLS3 padded compression socks helped during the HIM run. Feel free to ask if you have anymore questions.

  2. Ooo.. thanks for the suggestion! I've been using ice, which helps a lot, but I hadn't even thought about the KT Tape. Sweet!


I love comments! Thanks!
