Well I haven't trained for the past week ( letting the latic acid drain and strained muscles/ligaments rest.) . I've spent the past 7 days trying to get back into being a captialist minon/scholastic slave trying to catch up on the work I "forgot" to do on the flight back home. The jet lag is finally hitting in, I am up until 2 AM most nights for no apparent reason, that and I have suddenly become an email whore, checking it 20 times daily for replies from NZ contacts, USAT rankings in which I was ranked 227th Nationally in the men's 20-24 age group...Boo-yah!, and other random crap. Next week I begin to hit the pool again. I probably won't start running until after Easter, just to give myself an "offseason" so I can begin training for my plethora of halves, with a fresh set of legs and a fresh mind, oh yes and after some weight room time, I figure the Angry Runner's explosive power sets might not be permanent parts of the summer routine, but some harcore training pre-season with general strength training through out should help improve my splits. I have thrown my credit cards on ice until early April so I can re-register for IM NZ 09....also I am avoiding the temptation to upgrade the Bitch Stomper or worse custom build Stomper 2.0 ( I scoped out the Specialized, pro frame and have been comparing componets packages at various shops, one day I will have a real job that pays more than 20k a year and I will be able to throw some cash this way. Either that or I will go pro and get my crap for free.)
I just signed up for RI 70.3 I will most likely throw down on the Patriot in a month, since it probably won't fill until May. My parents have already stated Eagleman will be a family road trip ( There goes my explative filled speech if I qualify for Kona, but on the plus side it will be good to have a massive cheering section, consider my sisters,Mike, Parents, the Schultz's ( Pete and Bill not Ken's family unless of course you want to come down Ken I would welcome it.)Team Zoot GU ,HEAT , Team Blazeman, my fellow bloggers and the random people I meet along the way.
So for now I am going crazy with the free time that my limited to non-existent training has opened up.
About the Blogger Reunion in Jan. I don't know if I'll make it, granted I will have limited classes because if all goes well I will be done with a majority of my classes, this and next semester. So I'll just be finishing the minor, and possibly a lab., but I am also planning on two weeks in the land of the Kiwis come March, I figure on my second go round I want to explore a little bit more of the country..we'll see.
Well it's now about 4AM stupid Daylight savings time, I've gone on a little too much for one day.
I'll probably sleep in tomorrow ( and go to Late Mass, the joy of being Catholic in Lent.)
Trying to get back to the grind.
