Okay, a week or two ago I had gotten a physical from my doctor, why it's takes 6 weeks to make an appointment in something that is hurting me now I will never know..I could be cured by then or the pain could disappear..
The doc asked why I was here, besides from the foot pain I'm experiencing, I mention that I was planning to do an "Ironman". Asked is she new what that it was? Yes, she replied, stating I have seen it on TV. Cool I said, off I go to different places, blood test, EKG, and etc and so on..
Got the results back, okay cholesterol a little higher than before, good stuff lower, bad stuff higher..Not good, but tolerable..The kicker was after the nurse gave me the lab results, she mentioned that the weather is getting warmer and I should "EXERCISE"..Not sure if I should have started laughing or sobbing at that point...Maybe a little of both..
But as she told me her "Exercise" suggestion" I thought to myself, "So what have I been doing??" As I screamed inside..Crap back to drawing board..
okay refocus, hmmmmmmmmmmmm...Thinking of my better days when I was able to throw a perfect Judo throw on a black belt that thought I was just a newbie..
awww, that feels better.....
Rode with my TRI club today,... Big group, and some fast riders, but I knew I had to stay in my training zone...I must admit that I did for most of the time, but did try to pace with them, more patience I must learn, as a young IM Jedi in training..The dark force is sooo tough to resist sometimes. Along with ego I must admit..
not a bad day thou, 3hrs on the bike, 30 minute brick run with a fellow IM newbie in training..Not bad for a Sunday anyway..
Four weeks down and 20 more to go..
