Long Time

Alright I know it has been a long time and I know that I seem to start every entry with that, I knew when I started it that this would happen and I am sure that everyone that knows me knows that this would happen as well.
A lot has happened over the last few months. In my last post I was talking about the first week training in Florida well it turns out that knee injury ended up being a lot worse then I thought. I tried hard to get it better before the Oceanside half and thought that I would be ok but sure enough about 3km into the run it started to really get tight so I decided to call it a day. After the race we headed back to Florida where I started to train again, doing a lot of water running and elliptical combined with lots of swimming and riding, eventually I got a cycling injury and couldn't even ride my bike. This can be big trouble for me because since I was a swimmer for 10 years before tri's swimming is not my favorite thing to do, and since it was the only thing I could do, I was really started to get depressed and was having a hard time finding motivation. The last 2 weeks in Florida were really tough, all I wanted to do was go home and get better.
When I finally got home, I was able to get regular physio work with the magician Nigel Hudson and after a couple of weeks of work and little training I am starting to feel a lot better and getting back into some good training again.
I have reciently moved into the C3 house in the Hammer (Hamilton) and preparing for the next couple of races. I plan on doing the Milton race and the Muskoka chase. I have not raced Milton since my first year racing, I think my best placing there is 21st so I hope to do better then that!!! and Muskoka will be a pretty big race for me and I hope to be in pretty good shape by then.
Oh yeah, this was my bike for the St. Anthony's race, you can't find a cooler looking faster bike then this!!!!!! Thanks Nat for letting me borrow the wheels.
