Time-trialed the local tri course.

Spent most of the day at the pool, ex for a quick ride. Feeling much better today.

Got up early and walked around our friend's farm with the boy, then did some pre-moving in shopping at Wal-Mart. Yes, I know. I'm evil. Sorry. My kid needed a fishing rod. So sue me.
Feeling a little better today, compliments of the $70 worth of prescription and non-prescription drugs I bought yesterday. Just finishing up a few things, and then, at approximately 1:00:01, I’m outta heah like Vladimir. Whatever that means. Clearly I need to watch more of G’s to Gents to update my lingo. I’m sure Creepa has some useful phrases, but unfortunately, I can’t understand a word he’s saying most of the time. Sometimes I watch tv with the closed captioning on, so I can keep the volume down so as not to wake the sleeping KOTWT. Most of the time when Creepa’s talking, the captioning says, “(Unintelligible.)” Heh. Goals for the vacation are: at least 3 OWS, and at least 125 miles on the bike. Pending whether I’m feeling better of course. I have other goals, but they’re mostly related to beer and drinking, so I don’t know if it’s appropriate to post them here…. B: Hmm…now that you mention it, I don’t think I had breakfast. I slept on the couch so as not to infect the wife & kid, and it kinda threw off my skedge.
Sooo...I woke up last night at 2am with a 102 fever. Took some tylenol, and by 7, it had gone down to 100.8. Weird. No other symptoms at all. Since I'm leaving tomorrow, I'm taking no chances, so I'm typing this from the computer in my doctor's waiting room. Hopefully she'll say it's nothing (I feel much better than this morning), or give me a 'scrip or something. All's I'm saying is that this better not f-up my vacation. Needless to say, no workout tonight--gotta pack anyway. B: granola S: almonds L: Turkey salad sandwich
Feeling a little...not right. I was planning to take it easy tonight anyway (Runway night). I picked up the copy of the NYC tri from mburkhart's husband (Thanks, Michelle!) and watched it. I'm at minute #41, running up a hill, sometime towards the end of the first mile. (I can tell 'cause I still have my little water bottle with me, which I ditched at the 1st aid station). The voice over as I'm on screen is something like, "It's a hot day, and all of these age-groupers are thinking one thing: 'finish line, finish line, finish line." Yep. That's pretty much what I was thinking at that point. Also, "Ouch this f*cking jellyfish sting hurts." Two days to vacation! Tick tock! B: Granola L: broiled grouper, 1/2 doz oysters D: Chinese food.

My tri club sponsored a "track meet". Everyone got divided up into different teams and competed in different track and field events. My team ultimately lost, but I won the pushup contest (61 in 60 seconds), the hammer throw, and came in second in the frisbee throw and the "rock put". That was fun. My new favorite show is "G's to Gents". I used to work with Fonzworth Bentley. True story. I think I need to start working, "You can't check a real G" into my daily conversations. I'm not sure what it means, exactly. There's a possibility that you might find this amusing: http://beginnertriathlete.com/discussion/photos/show-album.asp?albumid=9627&photoid=77073 B: granola w/blueberries and almonds L: turkey wrap w/corn & balck beans pre-track meet: turkey sandwich D: Pizza--2 slices.
