Monday-30 min swim. went very well. I also bought a used tribike. K2 Red Zone. It has Vision aero bars, carbon forks and seat post, and Shimano 105 components all around. I got it for A LOT cheaper than it retails or any other used price I saw. I will get some pictures posted soon. It was a scary ride today. I have some core strength to work on, as well as, some balance. I was a shaky ride. It was shaky and fast. I will take some getting used to but I am excited.
Wednesday-6 mile run that turned into a 3 mile run.
Thursday-Strength training only
Saturday-Softball tournament 4 games.
Sunday-10 mile run that felt very strong. I ran hills that I normally struggle on. Felt good. I also went for a leisurely 12 mile bike ride with my sister and brother-in-law. It was the first bike ride on their new bikes. So fun to teach them to shift and safety. Joni is going to do Irongirl with my wife and Andi. We are excited for them. Fun day today.
2 weeks to race day. I am already looking forward to training for Ironman. I am very confident in my ability to do this full marathon. I am not looking past it either though. It is quite a feat and the festivities surrounding the LA Marathon will be very memorable. I cant wait.
I am thinking of writing a post somehow touching on the subject of symptom maintenance. In my practice, I do not build the athlete/patient up to need me. I think the athlete/patient should be given the tools to keep themselves pain free and functional without any gimmicks. I also do not want to fire anybody up. I do not want to fire up other professionals or people who require "that thing." I just want to raise awareness about how sound biomechanical training helps people perform better and have no symptoms Any thoughts? Run easy, recover, sprinkle in swim and bike, and enjoy the ride.

My life's goal is to inspire. To show someone that a little bit more is possible. i am proud to do that for my patient population. I am very proud to help these newbies out, as well. And diesel if you get that mentoring program up, I will help any way I can.
