Iron man in the making

Today I got as close as I'll probably ever get to doing a triathlon:

1. Bike over to neighborhood library branch and grocery store (0.65 miles each way).

2. Run down to neighborhood pool (1.1 miles).

3. Jump around in shallow end with kids (1 hour).

4. Run back (1.1 miles).

Not exactly Olympic-level training. But something tells me I'll be feeling it, oh, along about Saturday afternoon.

Yeah, well I ran into Bud Clark at the Nobby tavern last night--he stops in a couple of times a week for a beer. He told me he'd stopped drinking beer for a couple of weeks because he wants to lose some weight. But the day before, he biked 26 miles with his kids and in-laws--after which he was so thirsty he jumped off the wagon with both feet. Then yesterday, he hiked up to the Pittock Mansion and back with some kids.

Bud's in his 70s, so Jack, you have plenty of time to get into that kind of shape.

It would be better if you did this exercises even if three times a week! ;-)
