Transplant Annual Checkup On Monday I had an annual checkup with my transplant doc. Questions were ask about my health in the next 20,30 years. I am taking an immunosuppresion drug call Cyclosporine. It’s job is to keep my body from rejecting the liver. It is also toxic to the body, especially the kidneys, and have a number of side effects. Looking at the blood results from the past number...

What do a triathlete do at an auto show?
I spent more time checking out bikes than cars. I don’t even know what SUV is this one..who cares.

Cervelo Soloists. The red one is carbon. Sweet.

Life and Health There are times when you have to forget about the past and move forward.There are also times in order to move forward you have to dig around the past. Is it a haunting past? A bad childhood experience? No. It is about my liver transplant. The operation I had at 10 and became normal ever since. For that, I am grateful and humble by the experience. I am thankful for the Lord looking...

Chilly anyone?
Note: -22*C is -7*F
It didn’t feel so bad until I ran into the wind. Didn’t realize the gusts were that strong. But I got my run (1 hr 10 min) in. Spent 10 min in the pool until someone decided to vomit and well..no more swimming for me. Too bad, I was just about to warm up.

Swim, Bike, Run and LifeJust want to recap this week: Swim – Since I bail my swim last week, this week I make sure I take a chlorine bath. Ribs are fine. Thanks for the concern. I cannot kick at all. Last night, I had to do 200 m kick drills. Argh. I was going so slow that a granny doing back stroke passed me. Whenever I kick, I could feel my hip flexors. The first 50 m, I almost cramped...

Drawing the line… Sometimes in life you can get by in the gray area.And sometimes you have to draw the line.The defining moment, where everything will change either way. This ain’t easy. It never is.Maybe that’s why we have a fondness for familiarity.It gives us control of our lives. When mediocrity is familiarity. There is a problem. It might not be noticeable at first..Slowly...

Crossroad I have trouble starting this post. Another topic I would love to write is chaos in relation to triathlon. Given the situation I am in, this feels more appropriate. Don’t worry. It ain’t anything serious. I am ok and actually doing good. I bailed a swim yesterday but that ain’t the end of the world. Last night, I prayed and reflected about my direction and where I am...

A weekend come and go. Sat, I woke up at 4 am for no reason at all. Since I am up, I figured I might as well start my long ride. I tried the Spinervals 26.0 The Hardcore 100. This is a 3-DVD set with 5+ hrs of riding. My plan was to do a 4 hr on the trainer so I didn’t do the whole set. As the video loads up, they have a warning stating that you MUST finish the program or else Coach Troy...
