Starting to feel good. Now I just need to drop about ten more pounds and I will be ready and raring to go for Ironman Louisville.

We have six baby kittens at home now having not gotten our kitten (Cash) spayed in time. Now three weeks later we have her offspring and I am trying to get rid of all of them but one. We had a minor tragedy the other night when one of my daughters friends stepped on one of them and hurt it pretty bad. Took it to the vet the next day (another 139 bucks down the tubes) and they said no broken neck as we had thought but it is still acting funny two days later and we have to feed it by hand. Don't know if the poor thing is going to make it.
Anyone want a kitty?

I have been very light in the workout department since IM MOO and thanks to Mark Gorris a friend from the Cleveland Triathlon Club (CTC ) I have finally started working hard on the bike in the last six weeks after joining his CompuTrainer Challenge and learning how to train with both wattage and heartrate to become a stronger rider. Mark is also going to help me with workouts this year leading up to Ironman. CTC has been such a great resource for me and I have made a ton of new friends and workout partners who have helped me so much in my short triathlon career. Did my first long ride today of about 3hrs in a cold rain with several of my CTC homeys, Rob R, Aussie Rob, Katie, Morena, Ryan, Tim, Dave and a couple others. Other than the fact I didn't wear my foot warmers and my feet were like lumps of clay by the end when Ryan and I went for a short run, overall it felt great to be outside riding for a while. My legs are shot but I feel great and now all I need to do is lose some damn weight. Tomorrow I have a run scheduled we will see how my sore knee feels in the am. I'm out.
