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

How I Feel at the Moment

...which is ironic since I'm typing this at work at 7pm on a Tuesday evening when I should be sitting on my bike cursing my T3 Coaches for putting me through the ringer once again.
Oh well...at least I hit the T3 swim class this morning and had a decent workout. Since when did only one workout a day constitute me being a lazy slacker?
I'm off to finish some press releases and media inquiries for the Texas Nursery and Landscape Expo this weekend in Houston. Don't be jealous...

by the time I left the soul-less corporate world I thought I'd shoot somebody if I had to write another press release. So no jealousy there - but the two-a-days I am totally jealous about!

i've never sweat as much in my LIFE as i did today at spin.

i kid you not, the pad on my shorts was dripping down my leg it was so soaked, as i walked to my car afterwards.

now THAT is some serious sweat.

ShirleyPerly said...

Hopefully you are not still at work. You own a Guru bike too, right?

I missed ya, and wondered where you were! Spin was SO DANG HARD. That was definitely one to miss. ;)

Patricio said...

I feel the exact same way rite now!
Would love some wine... or sangria! :)
But soon I will be heading to the gym for a swim and spinning.
have a great rest of the week!

Viv said...

I can bring the cheese for the wine. Hang in there Caddy it looks like you missed a serious butt kicking. But I know you would have enjoyed it cause we are sick like that.

I would normally not agree with you, but this week work totally sucks! No ifs, ands, or buts.(lots of buttheads!) Chin up though, it will get better.

Boats Sail On The Rivers


Boats sail on the rivers,

And ships sail on the seas;

But clouds that sail across the sky,

Are prettier far than these.


There are bridges on the rivers,

As pretty as you please;

But the bow that bridges heaven,

And overtops the trees,

And builds a road from earth to sky,

Is prettier far than these.
