About Me

274057285_3a3aa76a28.jpgFor my 40th year I decided to take another angle.  To many people get hung up on the life's little issues; work, age, permisson, etc, etc, and forget there's a world outside their picket fence.  So for my mid-life crisis therapy i'm  spending more time living, and less time sitting on the couch...my antidote to the corportate lifestyle; no sabattical included.

    Off to Bermuda....

    One thing for sure...continuing to swim immediately after my Euro - Africa swim as been tough.  After all the training to get ready for the big swim I find myself a bit burned out.  Frankly, I'm a little tired of stairing at a little black line everyday.  It's also getting cold and getting light later in the morning by the day.  So getting out of a warm bed...at 5am...when its 40 degrees and dark...to go jump in the water...well it's been a bit tough.  However....all is good on the mental front so no complaints.  In fact I did anticipate a bit of a post event letdown and brought a new element into my training to help vary my schedule.  Bikram Yoga.  I tried it quite a few times in the past but i never got into it but i am liking it now.  I started the day after getting back from Europe and have gone 4-5 times a week since returning.  I suck...and am about as flexible as a metal pipe, but i have seen some improvement in the last few weeks (ever so small...real small).  I actually jumped in the pool earlier this week, swam two laps and said, 'screw it,' and went and worked out on the stariclimber.  Balance is a good thing,  and this is just a reminder.

    I am actually curious to see how this race goes.  Its 10k so less than half of Gibraltar, and not out in a channel, but the moment won't be quite as dire...so i am not sure what to expect.  But it's sunny and the water is warm...so there, i just flipped my attitude in one paragraph....  All good.

    Leave tomorrow, one day in NYC and then to Bermuda.  Plan to keep clear of the triangle....
