I never claimed to be incredibly bright . . .



It has been over a month since my surgery january 5th. I have hit a few road blocks with this recovery. Infection has kicked my butt and I am done with this resting and recovering thing!

I've been eating out of control the last couple of weeks. I've identified it and am correcting it, but it was a feeling I thought was done with. Problem addressed and problem taken care of.

I dropped out of Ironman CDA in June. My Dr feels I might be able to get back on the training horse by April and that is simply not enough time to get my body ready.

With that I am setting and goal for Ironman Arizona: SUB 13 hours.

That's right.

OK, for most people that is a silly goal and for hard core Ironman participants they will giggle and some even mock this goal, but most of those guys I can sit on or break them in half - (that was passive aggressive . . . or was it just aggressive?) But for me sub 13 hours will be a serious accomplishment.

Ironman FLorida was my ice breaker. My goal was to have fun and enjoy the day and I did just that finishing in 15:11.

I believe I can knock off 2 hours and I will.

I am going to race a couple times this year, but mostly focus on training.

I am looking for a half ironman in August in the South West . . . (SUGGESTIONS).

Whatever your goals are - Set them HIGH and go for it!

YOU CAN DO IT!

Lofty goals my friend. Mine go in opposite directions. With 13 09 at IMFL, I am just hoping for sub 14 at ST George (hills, you know).

But you know what, I figure an hour for every 15 pounds... so make one goal and the other should follow.

St George is massive with the rollers! You'll kick butt!

And thanks - Good news today . . . Abscess on my leg it going to heal up well we think. I am tired of the Doctors, but they's be good peeps to me.

Cheers!

Cute pic!

Sounds like you made the right choices re: racing.

I can relate to the eating issues. Hard when they get out of control again -- hard to reign them in, so good for you for getting them in check.

Silverman is a great full and 1/2 IM outside of Vegas. Great organizers, great schwag, and a challenging course. It's about the same time as IMFL, so it would be a good cap to the year if you're up for it.
