About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

And we're moving on up!!!

Fish don't fry in the kitchen;

Beans don't burn on the grill.

Took a whole lotta tryin' Just to get up that hill.

Now we're up in the big leagues

Gettin' our turn at bat.

As long as we live, it's you and me baby

There ain't nothin wrong with that.

I was in lane 2 today for swim class and didn't fall too far behind!! I made it to freaking lane 2 and actually swam a couple of 2:05 100s!! Seriously, my average has been 2:15-2:20s.
And I'm moving on up!!
Yay for the inch by inch progress!
2800m of sheer joy (and pain, thanks to last night's corture class at Jack and Adams!)

Well, actually, lane 2 kind of moved down. We had fewer lanes than normal available at the pool because the kiddos are trying to get into the Olympic trials (gawd!) and my slow lane mates were AWOL that morning. So I was with the lane 2 crew, and I hung in pretty well.
