Did one 500 (at 1:40!), and spent the rest of the time on stroke drills.

Hot as a mofo, day 2.  

So, the good news is that my calf feels fine.  I think, though, I'm not going to try running on it until the race on Sunday.  So, I'll swim tonight, and do bike and elliptical workouts the rest of the week, and hopefully, it'll hold up on Sunday.  I'm going to take a couple of extra seconds in T2 to put on a neoprene wrap to give it some additonal support.  My calf didn't bother me at all on my ride on Sunday, so I don't need to put it on in T1. 

 I'm also debating whether or not to do another Sprint on the 28th.  It's the same one I did last July in Staten Island (the one where Tim, aka 1stTimerinNY) got stung by jellies. There's going to be a big turnout from the Brooklyn Tri Club, so I'd kinda like to be there to represent.  I feel like my injuries have limited the amount of racing that I've been able to do this year, so I'd like to add a few more where possible.  NYC is only a little more than a month away, so another Sprint in the meantime couldn't hurt.  I'm going to wait to register until after this weekend to see what the calf does.

  •  B: Raisin bran & skim milk.
  • S: Almonds
  • L: Gaspacho, which I managed NOT to spill on my white shirt, thank you very much.
  • S: pb/chocolate Powerbar. 
  • D: Chicken soup, salad (it was really hot in the apt, but I was craving soup for some reason.) 

I put a few pictures from Saturday's festivities in my album. 


Holy Jebus is it hot here. Hope it cools down a little by Sunday.  It's like 103.  And 103 in NYC is just worse than 103 in just about anywhere else.  Except maybe hell.  Not as bad as there. 


  • B: pb&j
  • S: granola bar
  • L: Gaspacho and barley salad
  • D: Grilled chicken "Nicoise" salad.  A slice of birthday cake.  Which I in no way regret.

Geez, I haven't blogged since Wednesday? What the hell is wrong with me? Wow, what a busy weekend. Saturday was my boy's birthday party. It was a smashing success, especially the clown/magician, the unbelievable cake, and the 10-foot green dragon made entirely out of balloons. Yep. It looked as amazing as it sounds. I'll post pictures as soon as they're ready. My dad's wife (his third, but who's counting?) is a fantastic woman, and we love her and she makes my dad really happy. She also happens to be one of the top event planners in New York, so she knows people. People who can make jaw-dropping birthday cakes with marzipan dragons that look like something on the Food Network, and people who can create these incredible balloon sculptures. You had to see it. It was HUUUGE! Oh, and I saw Kung fu Panda. Better than Bee Movie, not as good as the Incredibles or Nemo. It was incredibly hot this weekend--mid 90's and humid. I got out for an early ride today before it got too steamy. B: pb&j L: D: Pizza S: chips & salsa

Son's party today. There will be no working out, and probably bad eating. Best not to say any more. My kid got a bike for his birthday. "Thrilled" is not sufficient a word to describe his reaction. He would have ridden his bike all day and blown off his party completely if we'd let him.
Today, my son, aka , The King of the Wild Things, is four. Tons of stuff to do today to get ready for the party. If I could run, I would, but since I can't I don't think I'll get any workouts in. B: pb&j L: D: burger, salad

Circuit workout

Calf is at about 75%. Trouble is, it still has that "one bad step away from getting re-injured" feel to it, so I'm reluctant to try running on it until that's gone. B: Chex w/skim & blueberries L: grilled chicken salad D: egg sandwich on ww

Yeesh what a crappy day at work. At least I had this really cool new suit on, so I looked like a million bucks. (Quiet, Emily.) Ok workout. Hey, my race is a week from Sunday and I can't run. At all. Yay! This should be interesting. I guess my calf feels a little better. Hopefully I'll be able to try it out a little this weekend. Luckily, it's only a Sprint. Sure wish Tim was around. I have some questions about the bike course, which he rode last year. B: Chex w skim & blueberries S: Clif bar L: gaspacho & ww bread & 2 twizzlers S: almonds D: chicken w/veggies & brown rice, tomato salad.
