So this last week has been a good training week and some fun as well. Thursday night I went golfing for the second time of my life with my brother-in-law. It was a ton of fun and I think it may be my new calling=) I got blisters on my hands from not using a glove and hitting too many balls on the driving range. My favorite activity was the birdie course(pitch and putt). I think I may invent a new sport for cross training, speed golf.
Before I went golfing I did some intervals while Kuan and his boy Garrett helped out. Pictured below is Garrett leading me out on one of my intervals.
Marybeth and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary today! It has been 5 crazy and busy years. I can’t believe we were still finishing college when we got married… seems so long ago. We spent a lot of time with Grant today which was lots of fun and made us all very tired.
Hope everyone has a fun Memorial Day weekend!
This past Sunday I raced the Gear West Duathlon and now I am very sore. I think the biking is the cause of my pain… I usually don’t go fast on my bike so my hamstrings got a little beat up. It was a fun event and I finished 10th overall against some pretty serious triathletes/duathletes. I hung well in the first run but lost ground steadily on the bike portion. I think having an aero bike would have helped a bit.
Grant is now back to himself after being a little crabby from his fall last Monday. Yesterday the doc gave him another check over and everything was good… although the doc noticed Grant has about 5 new teeth ready to pop through his gums which may have been casuing him some pain this past week.
One of my favorite things to do with Grant is pushing him to the park in the baby jogger. Yesterday we stopped at the playground near our home. I was standing next to Grant while he was climbing the stairs to go up to the big slide. He had been doing laps up the stairs and down the slide with me in hot pursuit. On his 5th or 6th time up he stopped half way up and looked around. He took another step up and missed the stair. I watched as he began to twist and fall backwards. He went butt first through the safety rails. I grabbed the front of his shirt as he fell back but he slipped out of my grasp. I watched helplessly, in slow motion, as he fell about 8ft. When he hit the ground he landed on his head and shoulders, bounced a little and went limp. I jumped down and as soon as I grabbed him he started screaming. Checking him over he seemed a sluggish which had me worried about a head injury. I grabbed my wife and we were off to the ER. We also checked in with our family doctor and he checked out OK.
I think for the next few years I am going to have a leash on him=)
