February Fun!

So with January already over I am now thinking about spring! Time to get ready as the racing season will be here before I know it. So the blog had a mini hiatus the last couple weeks which was due to a few reasons.

a) As of the beginnning of the year I assumed the role of President of the Cleveland Triathlon Club and have really been focusing a whole lot of time working with sponsors, the newsletter and a bunch of other fun stuff
b) The year end workload at work
c) I have been busy with doctors as I managed to crash my mountain bike on January 16th, ended up in the ER and fractured my radius. If you're going to be dumb, you better be tough!

So all is on the mend. The good news is due to my elbow, I have actually been taking better care of the tibia. Speaking of the tibia, after another several week hiatus, I ran 30 minutes this morning which felt pretty good! OH HAVE I MISSED IT!

The elbow also screwed up swimming but have been getting in some kick drills and think perhaps this week I will see what the weak arm can handle as doc said that should be ok as long as it does not hurt too bad (tried it a little over a week ago and it was waay too soon!)

TG it has been the off-season!

Maybe not the best way to start the new year. Best of luck getting back in shape. I hope you didn't hurt the bike!

You're not dumb! Definitely tough. Don't you watch Jackass? When they ride their mountain bikes at the indoor parks they wear those big padded sumo suits, you need to get one for Ray's ;-)

Yikes! Heal up quickly. Make the most of the off season so you are ready and ripe to go once race season hits.

How about - if you're gonna go hard, you'd better be tough? Howp you heal fast! I'm so impressed that you're still in the pool doing kick drills!
