‘Operation 8pm’ backfired

Monday, July 21st, 2008

I became hungry at 9pm last night,…but I told myself, “suck it up,…you made a committment not to eat after 8pm”.  And so I went to bed without a snack.

I laid in bed, not only with a hungry stomach, but with my aching muscles and body keeping me awake.  Finally, I looked at the clock, it read 1:20am,…all while catching the most superficial sleep.

I then caved big time,…I got up, walked to the kitchen and made myself a stack of pancakes!  My god, did those little puppies ever taste good!

Half guilty, and half relieved, I then was able to catch some zzzs for the remainder of the night.

Today’s workout went very well – I am in a perpetual state of fatigue from training, but the speed, ease and fluidity of my workouts today felt super good.


beat down to a pulp

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

I’ve been working steadily hard in training,…I’m starting to feel like beat down pulp. I’m tired – that’s the best way to describe my life right now. I wake up tired, train tired, eat tired, work tired, then sleep tired. And I’m LOVING every minute of it!

I’m still able to work hard and get my training in – and that’s all that really matters. I can feel my body get fitter by the day.

My naturopathic ally, Dr. Ahlan gave each other treatments today too. ART for him; acupuncture and injections into the gluteal muscles for me 🙂

Peace out –


Paulo’s in my corner

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

I’m steadily training,…all is well. For a little over a week now, I’ve started training under an accomplished coach by the name of Paulo Souza ( He’s had a great deal of success coaching a number of athletes to spectacular Ironman finishes.  Should be fun.
