Watching Ironman


I'm spending an unhealthy day sitting on my butt at the computer and watching Ironman coverage. I did run 4 miles earlier today, though, in just under 44 minutes.

My training buddy Dave wisely decided to sit out the race today, since sadly his knee was still significantly damaged from his bike crash three weeks ago. No, of course the Ironman folks wouldn't allow him to transfer his registration to Ironman Lake Placid and allow his knee some additional healing time, so he's out his entire entry fee. He's spectating today in Coeur d'Alene and sending me updates on his Blackberry. My other training buddy Chuck is going strong on the course and will soon cross that finish line! Go Chuck go!

In other unrelated news, I just saw an ad - now Ziploc is making bags for steaming vegetables, like the ones veggies sometimes come in in the supermarket. Cool! I don't think they're available in stores yet, though. See http://www.ziplocsteamerbags.com

I am glad someone else was kinda lazy today too...now I feel not so guilty! :-) (But I rode earlier...hey it's Sunday...the "day of rest", right???)

Yeah, I pretty much spent my day that way, too. But I managed a quick swim and a trip to the grocery store ...
