Back to our regularly scheduled programming...

It's been crazy since race day, with travel, illness and getting back to life in general.

I'm just coming off 3+ weeks of no training after fighting a chest cold and, more recently, a bout of food poisoning (yuck!). I've set Monday as my day to get back on track with S/B/R - I have goals this fall!

I'm waivering on whether to sign up for the Maui Half Marathon in September. I'm going to test the run waters the next two weeks and see where I am health and stamina-wise before I commit. The last thing I want to do right now is overtrain and come up injured.

Since I won't be doing the Tri-Lanai off-road triathlon (our annual fundraising golf tournament was scheduled for the same day), I'll be doing the Makila Duathlon and Xterra 10K in October instead. And there's a very slim chance I'll sign up for the Bluewater Tri in Parker, Arizona in November (a lot of travel and logistics are riding on that one)...we'll see.

In other news, I looked at a Specialized Dolce road bike today. LOOKED, didn't touch or ride. I am shopping for a reasonably priced road bike to get me through next year's South Maui tri and perhaps a half Ironman in 2011 or 2012. Oooooh, I have shivers! I will be reporting on my bike shopping experiences over the next couple of months and let you know what I end up with. Can't wait!
