  Recovery Week

I celebrated my recovery week by doing absolutely nothing more strenuous than chasing my kids around. No Yoga, No easy spinning, nothing. That's not the best way to recover, so do as I say and not as I do.

I did spend some time getting caught up on work, planning for two fund raising events, and getting some things in order for RAAM (including filling out the application and paying the entry fee). Carolyn said they can use the picture of me from Monument Valley as my official picture. Its the one of me holding the three pieces of carbon fiber that used to be a Zipp 202 rim. Cool.

Its getting close to Bike Sebring. I'm really looking forward to it this year. David and Jakson, two members of my RAAM crew may join me there. My dad is coming down as well. In 2005, Sebring was on my list of "A" races meaning ones I train for and the main goal is results. In 2006, I used Sebring as a "C" race meaning it was more for training than racing and the results were secondary. This year it's an "A" race again. The next three weeks will be Lactate Threshold Intervals (right now I can do 10 minutes at a time, I'd like to be able to do 40 minutes) and I'll continue with the Maximum Strength phase in the weight room. I hope to put up some big numbers down there in Florida.

I've gone through kidney failure twice. The first time in 2000, my mother donated a kidney; and again in 2008, I'm on dialysis waiting for a breakthrough in immuno-suppression medicines before seeking a new kidney.
