My bike

I took my bike into the shop today, of course the guy that sold it to me was not in. I talked to the guy that was in the shop at the time and told him of my woes, he thought that they might change the stem to a shorter one to bring the handle bars closer to me. When I asked him what that would cost he said "we shouldn't charge you anything, we sold you the bike" I told him that I liked that answer.

I left the bike and my number, the manager was supposed to call me but I haven't heard from him yet. I will keep you posted as to how this goes.

I know I am a dork but I don't care, my work outs have been awesome this week! I have felt recently that my conditioning wasn't quite as good as I wanted it to be, so I have resorted to my "ladder" training. I run in one minute increments increasing my speed each minute for 5 "rungs" then i go back to the first and start over. It makes the workout go much faster too! I am sure that there is a much fancier name but ladder works for me :)

I will be swimming again tomorrow, we will see how my ears do, they are still sore but hopefully the antibiotics will knock whatever it is out soon, I really hate taking antibiotics

oh my aching shoulder

My work out today consisted of 30 minutes on the treadmill in zone 2, I was tired and didn't feel like pushing it.

So I went to a massage therapist today, he is actually more than a massage therapsit but I can't remeber what the other letters behind his name mean so Message Therapist it is. Anyway, my right shoulder has been a little tight and uncomfortable for a while now, but lately it was starting to get unbearable so I went to see Tom. He worked on my shoulder for a good 50 minutes, it was unbelievable the knots that he was finding! I am a little sore tonight but it is the good kind of sore, I go back to see him in 3 weeks. Here is the crazy thing, he does Shiatzu massage as well, so he loostened up the rest of me with a shiatzu which is a massage where they have bars on the ceiling and kind of walk on your back, it was interesting but worked really well.

long time...

It has been too long since I last posted. My ears are not a whole lot better yet but I now have silicon ear plugs for swimming so hopefully I will see a change in the near future. Speaking of swimming, things are going well. Today I swam 1300M only 100 of which were the breast stroke as part of my warm up and cool down. I have to say I am proud of myself, I have come a long way, I still have along way to go but I am getting somewhere!!

So, just because I haven't been blogging does not mean I haven't been doing anything. I have set my goal to work out 6 times a week I usually get in at least 4 days. There are only about 7.5 weeks until the 30 week training program starts in earnest, yikes!!
