WILLLLLLMA!

Yup it's from the Flintstones...Willllma! but we are facing a different Wilma. Wilma the Cat 5 Hurricane has Southwest Florida in her sites. UGH not again! We went through this last year with Charlie. Charlie's eye passed 15 miles from my house with 145 mph winds. Yes it sounded like a freight train for 2 hours straight. We lost 100 trees on my street and I was without power for 3 days.






So I'm busy at work making arrangements to fly our staff out to various places (Atlanta, Jacksonville....Etc) and tomorrow I'm taking the puter system apart to place in our safe room. Friday we are giving everyone the day off and I'll be at home securing my house. I think I'm going to stay rather than bug out. I think I have enough beer and ice to make it thru the weekend. After all I can leave my bike.

I had a great time n St. Pete Beach and the town of Pass-a-Grille. I saw a lot of cyclists and runners. It's a thriving TRI town and a lot of the MAD DOGS train at St Pete Beach. I also won a free dinner a the Salt Rock Cafe in Indian Shores.

So it's back to the grind... Today was a bike day 25 miles ave 18.5 mph and tomorrow is a fartlek run with the tennis ball..... last weaks mileage was a mess from my conference....


LAST WEAKS TOTALS

Run 34 miles
Bike 110 miles
Swim 3x's open water swim in the Gulf at St. Pete's Beach

Health Update:

My back has healed nicely..Although I can't see it. I went to the Docs on Monday. They suggested I try to keep it wet...swim more?I've had some back and leg pain this week so I'm taking some industrial strength moltrin. I get to see my brain surgeon next week if Wilma allows.

The 2 pm BAMM model shows a miss, so let's hope all the other models are wrong!

Here's hoping you get lucky like we did here in Houston!
