32 Days until Ironman, Yikes!!!

Okay, just a quick post.  I swam 3000 yards yesterday with the pull buoy, my lats and triceps were sore today, the good kind of sore, the kind of sore that tells you you worked hard but not so sore that you can't move.  I swim 3500 straight tomorrow, should be interesting, I have to travel out of town for work so I found a 24 hour fitness that has a pool near my hotel, nice!  It will be nice to just swim without having to get back to work or home, I can just swim for as long as it takes me, then head back to my hotel and nap!

Another quick mention; I love, love, love The Biggest Loser!  All of the contestants are so inspiring and look so amazing, and that is all I have to say about that!  Go Daris!!

Have a happy day!

It's been waaaayyyyyyyy too long!

So I have been a bad blogger lately; but while I have been a bad blogger I would like to think I have been a good wife, mother, friend, employee, gardener, traveler, vegetarian, biker, runner, swimmer, crasher, you name it, I think I have been it! 

My Ironman training continues to go well, I am struggling mentally with all of it but have persevered.  I think that the training is why I have not had the energy to blog, I truly don't even log on to my computer most nights.  I am going to try to re-commit to my blog because I have been experiencing a whole host of emotions that I need to document, I want to remember how I am feeling with only 34 days until race day!  Right now I am fairly calm, I got to have the day off  which is always good for the soul, so what did I do on my day off?  I made cupcakes of course!  I am posting a picture of my cupcake because it makes me laugh.  I have the "Hello, Cupcake" book and love it, I have made a number of the cupcakes in the book with a reasonable degree of success, today, however was an utter failure!  My oldest child will be doing a report on great white sharks tomorrow so we thought we would make cupcakes that looked like sharks coming out of the water, what we got was something between the Alien and a happy dolphin laying on top of the water.  All I know is that the kids and the hubby thought that they tasted great and the kids in the class are getting schools of fish that they can pretend to be great while sharks while eating, I am pretty sure that  class of second graders won't care!
I hope the photo make you laugh the way that it makes me laugh!

Have a happy day!
