Ok folks. Most of you all know about this nagging shoulder injury. I have not been in the pool since last september. Every time I think i am better rotator cuff tendonitis keeps coming back. I had an MRI last week. Slight labrum tear but no significant rotator cuff damage. Good news...yes. BUT.....I got another shot in the joint. If it doesnt go away this time, then i will have to go in for a shoulder spring cleaning. Overall the news is good but I JUST WANNA GET IN THE DAMN POOL.....

Thinking about doing a 1/2 marathon this may.....maybe.....

Been spinning and running intervals on the treadmill. Miss the pool very much.

I guess the man upstairs has other plans for me. We'll see.

Everything else is ok. May have good house selling news soon...keep your fingers crossed.

Running and intervals and life

Hey all,

Hope everyone is knee deep in tri-training....spring Tri's are on the horizon:)

I get a shoulder MRI on Friday. Hoping it will not require surgery.

Ran intervals at Long Beach yesterday. I think it was my best time yet. Been on the downswing with weight so maybe its making a difference. Also the cold and wind was a big motivator to get my tired, sweaty butt back to the warm car.

I watched the Bucket List yesterday. I liked it a lot. Here are some of the things on my Bucket list:

  1. Iron man finisher
  2. NYC marathon finisher
  3. learn to surf
  4. Hike the Appalachian trail
  5. Get a boat
  6. see a sunset or sunrise in every country in the world
  7. climb a mountain(really big one)
  8. Ride motorcycle cross country
  9. skydive(if they make parachutes that can hold a tank, they can make one that holds me)
  10. Play bass on a stage again

More to come:)

2007: Well...overall its been a good year. I think the struggles were equal to the Highlights.

  • Lost over 50 lbs
  • learned to swim
  • 2 (count'em) 2 triathlons completed
  • Became friends with many in tri-blog land (especially Tea and Duane)
  • Over 80 days of abstinence from compulsive overeating
  • sobriety....yep folks no more booze either
  • sanity...yes folks I feel better than i have in a long long time....
  • Divorce after 6 years of marriage
  • selling house
  • hit my bottom....(atlthough i think its the best thing that happened to me)
  • injuries (shoulder/knee/back) seems neverending....
This year i would like to keep taking life 1 day at a time. I would love to be able to compete again this summer but we will see what life brings. I have to give other isssues a higher priority for now. This whole divorce thing is just temporary and the selling the house thing will pass too.

I continue to work on ME. I am building a better Bob.

Like the 6 million dollar man...i am going to be better, stronger, and faster:)
