Ironman Mont Tremblant

Saturday, February 5, 2011


I decided to bail on this morning's run.  Its been quite a while since I've bailed on a scheduled run but yesterday afternoon I wasn't feeling all that great.  I popped some Advil as my muscles were sore and I was freezing cold and felt tired.  It seemed as if my body was trying to fight off another cold like two weeks ago.  This week is a recovery week so I'm not worried about skipping a run.

In fact, tomorrow is the Superbowl and we usually go over to my friend's house.  Its an all day event where everybody arrives around 1 pm and the guys play a game  flag football outside (regardless of the weather) while the ladies and kids stay at the house and eat and talk.  After four hours of freezing our balls off we head back to the house and watch the game.  Personally I have no interest in watching football but there always is money involved so that makes it worth it.  I'm not sure why I don't have a lot of interest in football but I think it has to do with the slow flow of the game.  After playing Aussie Rules Football for 11 years, the constant stop and go annoys me.  Aussie Rules is constant playing with very little stoppage.

I've been doing this for over 15 years but Billy's two year old daughter is going through Leukemia treatment and has a weaken immune system so anyone who is sick is not allowed in their house.  I don't think I'm that sick but I wouldn't want to risk spreading any germs to her.

Oh yea I gained four pounds last night.  I went from 172.2 to 176.2.  Let's see, 3,500 calories x 4 pounds = 14,000 calories.   Wow, that's impressive because I sure don't remember eating 14,000 calories yesterday.


  1. Smart move on all accounts! dont fret the weight, its probably water for sickness recovery.

    No. I have no idea what Im' talking about but it sounded good to me :) lol!

  2. Sounds like a smart move to skip that run. You shouldn't worry about it, especially on a recovery week. I bet that weight falls off quickly, I wouldn't sweat it unless it is a trend...
