So there it was. We did ~3000 last nite, not a ton but not bad. 5K, 5K, 5K, Miami Open Water Swim. I got some work to do, that's for sure. Mr. PT says I'm getting better but no running...boooo. I can kick and push of the wall and ride a bike. Now, if it'll just warm up. I don't care WHAT is on TV, I hate the trainer, borrrring.Vegetarian Challenge - day 5 - All I can say is you better plan for your your meals and don't let them happen to you. I am still on track but had some random shiz that didn't really go together last nite...can't just make a turkey sandwich right now. I'm happy with everything so far and I've learned a ton. I know it's only day 5 but I'm not really craving anything EXCEPT for fish. For some reason, I'm dying for fish tacos and sushi. Maybe the lead is low in my diet or something! I can even deal with fake sausage. I do LIKE the fact that I'm not biting into a piece of gristle or hard nugget. Once that happens, I'm out, sausage, burger, whatever. Gives me the creeps. I might even be able to do the vegan thing at some point but in my humble opinion, cheese trumps everything. I could die from a cheese withdrawal and don't even talk to me about soy cheese. Chocolate soy milk, OK, soy cheese or vegan 'butter' - I think NOT!

Swimming and the Band Thief
I had to giggle when I read Marit's post about an article she ran across regarding bands on your paddles from Excel Aquatics. I laughed because I swim with the Excel Triathletes and Masters team. Well, our coach is so vigilant in removing all but the 'finger band' that she will pull them off your paddles while you're swimming-doing some other exercise. I heard a couple of folks in her office afterwards were begging for them back. Well, here's what her band collection looks like today. I'm sure it will grow! Bands = poor form, she says. I don't know but I still get lapped by the big guys. So damn strong.
