Still Kickin'!

No, I haven't disappeared off the face of the planet! Just haven't been into the blogging lately and I really haven't had anything worthwhile blogging about.
With no races on the horizon and lots of work to do, my workouts have been limited to running and some sporadic cycling. Any chance of a fall marathon disappeared as I suffered through some back pain over the last little while. A couple of trips to the chiropractor have helped but I am still having some impact from it. Mostly I have noticed that my hips and hamstrings are sore. Probably from having shifted my gait to compensate for the lower back pain. But enough about that!
Over the last while my son completed his final session of school and passed his provincial and federal exams and is a full qualified journeyman heavy duty mechanic (off road). We are very proud of him and happy that he has found something that he really loves to do.
This new house has taken up a fair bit of time as well and we are still getting ourselves organized. It seems like the work never ends.
Word on the street is that the pool is about a week away from re-opening. I can hardly wait! The swimming part of my training regime is one that I enjoy immensely. It is relaxing and easy on the body. Even though it can be a struggle I must admit it is the discipline that I am most happy with my progress. From a clumsy, splashing, half-drowning creature I have developed into something resembling a swimmer.
So there is a quick up date. I'm hoping that in the next couple of weeks I will have picked my Ironman race for 2010 and then the training will start in earnest.
Have a great day!

No marathon? Saving your energy for the brutal IM are you? Happy trails.
