Bored

i'm bored. i'm tired of being hurt already. i want to race tomorrow. one week down, hopefully only 3 to go. go back to the ortho on tuesday for x-rays...if it still looks ok, i think i'll be cleared to ride on the road. that's good and bad....temps toward the end of next week are forecasted to be quite cold...i cant get warm clothes on over the cast, so i may be relegated to the trainer - whenever i get one...

my friend, Dallas, who is riding cx too, has one he's going to let me borrow, but i dont have it yet. depending on whether i get it tomorrow or what-not, i may be going to performance and getting myself one. there have been times that i wished to have one lately. yes, i think they are torture devices and will ride outside when at all possible, but for those training days when you need to do specific training, it can come in handy.

finally got some vicodin yesterday. ribs/back/shoulder VERY painful. hurt to move, shower, dress, sleep, anything. today, after taking meds yesterday evening/night, i felt really good. until around 11am. got a headache and felt like i was going to puke. didn't feel like eating either. took a nap for 1.5hr and then ate a little. felt better after all of this; don't know what was up with that...

so, since i can't do the riding i'm accustomed to and i wont need all the carbs, i'm going to start the South Beach diet tomorrow. should be fairly easy to do since it's mainly me eating here. i hope to lose about 6-8 pounds over the next 3 weeks. eventually, i'd like to lose another 20-25 pounds, getting me down to the 150-155 pound range. that should put me at a better climbing weight.

meh...guess that's all for now....

I hear what you are saying about the trainer. Are you at least able to work on your swimming for the Ironman while your hand heals?
