this is hell gentleman...beleive me, it is.....



Well, i had a good sequence of 10 days of decent training and tuesday night, we went for a team dinner at the mexican restaurent. I took a few CORN chips to eat waiting for my main meal and in a lapse of 10minutes, it was hell.... i was sick...fever, sweating, feeling very weak and low pressure..... i guess some of these chips were contaminated with Wheat or gluten but i was in hell.

Since that night, i have been on the side line once again and not doing much but trying to recovery from that feeling of tiredness and weakness. I m struggling a lot with the gluten free diet to get enough food in my and just fuel myself and not get sick. My firend, Jodi came with me tonight to do grocery and try to show me some gluten free options, we have cook some banana bread tonight and Risotto last night....

This year as been all about murphys law as everything that can go wrong will go wrong for me. I have to say i have rarely face so much adversity in my career....never really and sickness and injury are coming one after another. I been pretty down and not really enjoying the training lately as it s not really training but trying to get in some sessions while dealing with pain and sickness... just not a fun place to be right now.

I m lucky to have some great friends, coach, training partner surrending me and i m trying to keep perspective myself. I do get a lot of email from people with crohn and UC asking question. I apologize for not really getting back to you right now, i do receive a lot of them and at this moment, i m using all the energy i have to myself and i need it........ like Al pacino says; inch by inch...play by play to fight my way back to the light.
