Homeless blog

Today I had the most amazing swim class. Coach Justin invited a two time olympic medalist to coach our class this evening. Her name is Wendy Boglioli and she won the bronze and gold medal in the 70s. She still looks super fit and I'm sure can kick butt still. Great instructor as well as she help us with our free-style, back stroke and kicking off the wall.

Anyways off topic, sometimes when things are going well, we take things for granted. Then we turn on the TV or read an article on the internet and you remember how greatful you should be to be where you are. This is exactly what happened to me today - had a greatful moment. I call them greatful moments because it puts me back at an equalibrium.

As some of you know, I am an avid blog reader and here's a blog I have been reading about the homeless in LA.

Bye Bye CRV...hello Z4

So over the past week, I've been seeing a new physical therapist for my foot. His name is Jason and he is one of the PTs at Corporo Sano. He and Eric looked at my feet and mentioned that there was a lot of atrophy (muscle loss) in my foot. That I need to strengthen my foot to get better. So I have been doing my exercises every night and paying a lot more attention to the way I walk and stand. To remember to tighten the muscles in my feet every step so that they start getting stronger. So far so good, I actually notice some improvements in a very short period of time. I am hoping and praying that I will be able to do the Kirkland triathlon this summer.

On a different note, well I don't know how to say this, but the Honda CRV is gone. It just wasn't fun to drive anymore. I traded it in for a slightly used convertible BMW Z4 :) Luckily Saris makes a bike rack that can fit on the trunk. Tomorrow I will bring it into BMW for regular maintenance.
