Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Reason number 429 I don't gamble:  I wrote down who I thought would win all 4 NFL games this weekend.  I was wrong on all 4.  Very happy Baltimore won, indifferent about Dallas and the Jets, really bummed about Green Bay.  Sorry, Paul.

AM- hip workout, then 5 tough miles on the bike. Really pushed it, huffing and puffing as much as any speed workout.

PM- 1 more at the physical therapist.  He said we're seeing improvement.  He's having me start running every other day, with 2-3 miles tomorrow.

AM- 8 miles, including 3 running.  No pain, but sore hips from the therapy yesterday.  Of course, it was Bagel Tuesday at PF, so that helped...

PM- 8 crosstraining miles.

PM- 10.5 miles xt.

AM- Only had time for 4 miles once I finished my hip stuff this morning.  I was dragging this morning as I haven't been getting to bed early enough all week.

PM- 1 at the physical therapist, then 6 more at PF.

AM- 8 running miles with Paul and Cody.  I think it's my first time running with them since before Christmas.  Cold (15 deg F) and very foggy/smoggy out, but I didn't notice much.  Hips felt generally good, though the left side started nagging a bit the last few miles.  3.5 weeks since my injury, 3 weeks till my race- hopefully I can continue to recover.

PM- 13 cross training miles while watching the second half of the Cardinals-Saints game.  Hopefully the next 3 games will be better than this one was.
