Triathlon = longevity?

Hey all, this aint’ base on a science report. This is just my own experience of the past three years as I entered into the world of multisports.

Back then, I would eat without a care of the world.

Now, I become cautious on what I eat. Not that I am over analyzing on what to avoid. I simply pick a lot of fruits and veges, less on the junk food (McDonalds, Burger King etc.) and maintain a good amount of meat (not a lot of buffet thanks you).

A while back, a friend mention to me that, “I ain’t discipline like you to change my diet.” I don’t think I am discipline at all. I didn’t change my diet b/c of my liver transplant. I am glad though that I discover triathlon and through the sport, I realize why I need to eat healthier. And now, the diet becomes a lifestyle.

On the drive to Rhode Island two weekends ago, I stopped off at a service station to look for fruits. I am so glad they have apples.

This season, I ain’t as disciple as two years ago. Not that, I am stuffing fast food in my face. I just enjoy going for ice cream after a run :D.

Triathlon might not save my life. The liver transplant did. Through the change of diet and importance on health through the sport, I should lengthen my lifespan by a bit. You know what that means..more fun on the bike =D

Today, checking over the Canada Olmypic Transplant site, I saw my name in the participants list. Yes! So I am in. I asked my supervisor for days off and got approval as well.

One of the games is a 8 km Bike Time Trial. All I can imagine is Tour De France time trials :). Granted I don’t have a aero helmet. But I will be ripping the field with my Cervelo Dual.

In the mean time, I dislocated my pinky toe over the weekend and it swelled on Sat. Dang I can’t believe a little toe can bring so much pain. After much icing and iberprofin, today it is much better. These few weeks will be getting my legs back to running.
