OK, I haven’t been blogging much here, I apoligize. Partly because I am blogging elsewhere about my exercise & nutrition in preparation for a triathlon in May, so that diverts some of the things I’d normally write about here. But just to get you up to speed, it is a sprint triathlon, with a 1/2 mile swim, 24 mile bike ride, and 4 mile trail run. I am in week 6 or 7 of a 16 week training program. I am struggling to get my running “up to speed”, but I am definately improving. My back & hip feel better and better as I continue training, and I’ve been doing a lot of stretching & some yoga to help keep things loose. If all works out well, I’ll enter an olympic distance triiathlon (1 mile swim, 24 mile bike, 6 mile run) in September.
Jobs: I have accepted 2 jobs. 1 locums position for 2 months in Estes Park, Colorado, the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park! I got my CO state liscense last week, and am just waiting for hospital credentailing. After that, I’ll be moving back to my hometown to work in a moderate volume community ER.
Cats: My fat cat has gingivitis. I’ve started brushing her teeth with a baby tooth finger cot. She doesn’t like the banana flavored toothpaste that came with it! I’ll have to get some salmon flavored paste at a pet store. If it doesn’t clear up in 3 months with brushing, I’ll have to have her teeth cleaned.
Diet: Lost 15 pounds in past 5 months. Actually, all of it in 3 monhts, and steady at lower weight past 6 weeks. 🙂
Lingual Nerve group blog: Sorry for not posting guys. Nothing of interest medically. I hate my job at the present moment. I am hoping that it’s due to senioritis. I figure silence is better than complaining. PLUS, I lost my password. Can somebody please send it to me????
DId I miss anything?
