I'm Behind...

It's March. I've got just over 4 weeks until my 1st race. I have been swimming 2x since my last race, 6 months ago. I'm behind the curve. That's all I can say about that.

On the + side, running is going very well. I did not run over the weekend as my calves are sore but I'll stretch and maybe run tonight. If not, I'll run on Tuesday. It's all good; I feel pretty strong about the run but need to be in better shape. I'll start to kick up the training a notch this week and see how it progresses over the course of the next 7 days. I'm not worried yet.

On to more important things. The Cards opened season this weekend and Aidan played pretty well. We won 7-6 on a final inning comeback. Despite valiant attempts to lose, giving up a 5-1 lead, the team held on strong and came back in the bottom of the 6th to score the game winner with 1 out and men left on. Good job, team! Aidan went 0-1 officially, with one walk. He flied out on his only official AB and was up when the winning run scored on a passed ball. Game #2 tomorrow night @ 5:30 and game 3 on Wednesday. I'll let you know how those go.

We went to a casino night party on Saturday night and had a good time. Got to hang with Moe for a little while and met some of her friends. We are planning on going out with Moe and Mark on Saturday night for a blowout before they head off to Costa Rica. That should be fun!

That's all for now. Busy day but I'll try and catch you up throughout the week.
