1st mile with Champ last 2+ with Nano.

Ok, this just in...."Lane is heading to MCM!!! Now who is doing the pubcrawl/jockstrapping with me?
Run today!  Done.  Good run, tried to slow down a bit, but with the dog and then with the tunes, I guess I really didn't succeed, but then again any run without dying is a success! 

"American Girl" by Tom Petty has to be the best running song there way not to be happy when that tune comes on....also a good pacing song too, although I seem to pick up the pace a bit always.

Not much to the short and easy ride on the CT, but I guess you have to start somewhere. First ride (of any kind) since the hospital stint.

Got a copy of my hospital records today, and after reading through all 32 pages worth there was one word that kept recurring and now it really has begun to scare me, because it was something that I controlled and I thought I knew better.  Hyponatremia.  Every endurance athlete should read up on this if they haven't already.   Yes, you can over-hydrate...yes it can cause some serious problems, which for the most part I had all the symptons except for that coma/death part.  I don't think this was the entire problem, but did I weaken my body to an extremely low level in which the immune system was not able to keep up....I am beginning to think so.  I go back to the doctor on Friday and again on the 26th, guess I will get more info then.  Some seriously scary shiznit, that evidently I F'd up while having fun training.

Ironman Kentucky???

Well, the rumors are out there for a August 2007 race.....yeah, I would sign up...cuz I am dumb like that.  Actually, Louisville would be a great locale to have a race...and it is a short drive for me!  Ok, who's joining me???

Good morning folks, how's the monday so far? Not too bad here. A little sore from the run last night, but that is to be expected. The mental high of getting back to 3 miles will override the soreness. Now I just need to keep building, but to remember to take it slow in the rebuilding process. Got the "build" sked from Fish, so now it is official again and I have a plan to follow. And that begins with Mondays and Fridays off for the near future. Guess that means Champ gets some quality walking time tonight. Have fun peeps!

Ran out of time to run. Watched too much football and did too much yardwork.

Had a great day yesterday, but the best thing about yesterday was that it was the end of the month.  Now today, I get to start with a brand new calendar.  However, there is a lot of white on there that needs to be colored in.  Might as well start today and get this month off to a good start.  Will do a run later today....gonna push to 3 and hopefully to 4 miles.  Want to shoot for my longest run A.H. (after hospital).  Now if I can only channel the Chippy and Bodycheck running vibes of yesterday, I will be good.  :)

As for the rest of the day....well, gonna be a lazy bum and watch football for the early afternoon hours then may get out and edge the lawn.  Other than that, not much else on the agenda.

Going to the Tennessee game against Memphis State.  Game time is at 11am due to ESPN, so not much time for a real tailgate.  Oh well, gotta drive home.  Damn responsibilities!!!
Well it is Friday, so that means I don't have to run and I can have a beer, right?   Better say yes, cuz I am already about 10 minutes into the no running but drinking mentality!

1833:  OK, folks the recovery is officially over with.  How do I know???  Because I am now seconds away from having my first Guinness since my hospital stint.  Been saving it just for this moment.  I think it is time.  No more whinning about be sick now....the recovery is complete.  Ahhhhhhhh........

1810:  Just a short run with Champ (actually his longest), but things are beginning to feel much better with my running and my health.  Then again, the weather turned cooler today and running in 65 degree temps may have had a bit to do with it as well. may need shades to view my calendar!!!  Damn bright with all that yellow!
