Three Things Thursday


I have finally started to think about 2013 (at least a little) and even have signed up for a couple races. I have a friend that wants to try and Kona Qualify at the St. Croix 70.3 in May (they offer 30 Vegas slots and 30 Kona slots). I’m not up to racing, but I told him that I would train with him. It should be good for us both. As for my races, I signed up for a indoor tri series at the Y. It will be 3 races in each January, February, and March. Races include 15 minutes of each discipline with 5 minute transitions. I also took advantage of a Cyber Monday sale and signed up for Tri Del Sol for only $40! Tri Del Sol was actually my first tri ever back in 2008. It should be fun to see how much I can crush my time by.


And of course as soon as I start thinking about next year, I get injured. I pulled a muscle or something which is causing my some pain in my lower rib cage. It seems to be fine for running and cycling, but swimming is a no go. I tried yesterday and stopped after 200 yards. Swimming itself doesn’t bother it that much, but the turns (both flip and open) hurt like crazy. I’m going to take it easy for a couple days and probably start back up again next week if it is feeling better.

Chex Mix


The season is upon us for my favorite holiday snack – Chex Mix! I made my first batch last night and have plenty more cereal for at least 3 more batches. I have to put on a winter warmth layer and this should help!

    Injuries just fucking suck. They take the life right out of you. Heal quick and with that extra winter layer you may not even feel the injury.

    Wow! Two entries in a week! Gettin’ back on track!

    Sorry to hear about the rib injury – here’s hoping it’s not too serious and that you can just rest it for a little while and be back at it in the pool.

    Indoor races, eh? I’ve never even heard of such a thing! You’ll have to do a write-up of the race after you’ve done one – what it’s like, how it compares to outdoor…if it’s worth the effort…you know, the usual post-race recap!

    Chex mix is awesome – do you do anything special to yours?

    Ouch! Sorry about the injury. I hope that goes away soon. Way to be on signing up for a bunch of races already. I need to get a side job so I can pay for them. Yikes! Nice work on the Chex mix. Jenn loves that stuff!

    Ouch on the rib area. I could see how swimming would bother that. 🙁

    I love indoor tris during the winter/spring. Great gauges of where you are at. Plus it’s just short enough to kill yourself. 🙂

    Mmmm… that chex mix looks awesome. Kudos for adding the cheez-its. I’m telling you those… some m&m’s would make it complete!

    Ow. Hope you get better soon!! I hate injuries. Really really hate them. I can see how swimming would kind of KILL right now! Take it easy and heal up!

    OK I am not eating sugar or grains and I want to dive into that chex mix. Thanks! 😉
