Update from Saipan

Sorry for a lack of updates. I've been very busy with client work, light training, and especially therapy. Unfortunately, on Tuesday I was running and my whole left leg tightened up BAD! I had to stop and walk back to my homestay's. It was a real bummer, and the calf and hamstring were both affected pretty bad. I haven't done much running or biking since, and have only managed some open-water swim sessions. This week was supposed to be 2 really good sessions, plus the race, so I am bummed about that. Not much time until Arizona.

Luckily, Renata Bucher, (top female here), has a good friend here named Allan Collinson, who is a PT in Australia, and he's been working on me each day. He knows his stuff and without him I would be in a world of hurt right now.

Tomorrow is the Tagaman, and the leg has gotten better each day, so we will see how it goes. I am hopeful to finish, but the win will be tough, as Andy Noble is strong right now, and I certainly don't want to risk Ironman Arizona and a possible Kona slot for this race. Joe has already told me to drop out if it even begins to bother me.

Wish me luck though. Race is in about 15 hours.
