Back in the saddle again

What? It's Sunday afternoon? Where did Friday go? Oh yeah. I was in "la la land" courtesy of the oral surgeon that removed my last two wisdom teeth.

I don't remember when I slept so much. Probably since my last bout with anesthesia back in 2004. It wins every time. Was there some pain from the tooth removal? Yeah, a little. It was not what I expected though.

I was required to "take it easy" yesterday. So we did that. I must say it was sort of nice. We goofed around at the house, slept and took Baron to get his rabies shot. Last night we hung out with Team Triple Sports, posed for a team photo and watched "tricycle races". I was ready to get back to it today though.

It is hot. It is muggy. It is good training, right? 60 miles on the bike including Scottsdale Mountain and Hummingbird. It is a very doable ride in a very short amount of time and it is mostly flat.

There is so much anticipation in my brain right now. I am stoked for August's training ... and my birthday - which will include some training because it's what I want to do. I really need to stretch out the length of the swims in August to see if I can handle the 1500 and 2200 meter swims I have coming up in the next few months.

So here's to closing the book on July 2011. It was the most active month of my life. I look forward to many many more of those.
