court date set

a few weeks back, I got hit by a car in a traffic circle. I won't go into details since the case is pending (trust me, I will tell you all about it when it's done), but the date has been set for Nov. 25. Justice shall be mine!

today's workout: 5,000 yards

hit the pool today, and started swimming while the boy's swim team came in for a practice. I was till swimming as they did their drills. I was still swimming as they finished their drills. I was still swimming when they finished their workout. i was still swimming when another group of folks came in. I was still swimming when they left. Then I got out. So yeah. 2 hours and 15 minutes of swimming. The biggest problem is that the chlorine irritates me so much that for the rest of the day I am sneezing and having a runny nose. I need to find a way to stop that.

200 yds warm up
200 yds drills
6x100 yds pull paddles
200 yds mental
6x500 yds distance
12x50 yds speed (4 sets of 3x50 yds each)
200 yds cool down

I like having an uncommon last name

Now if only I could get that guy in Germany using "tomac" as his main blog address, I could fight my cousin's company for the use of it. 

What company? Glad you asked. Check out this site: or go to

First Post

Well, this is it. Impressed? I'm not. If you read this, drop a note. Or don't. Either way, I won't be disappointed since I have such low expectations anyway.

Coming soon, I'll post my Ironman training misadventures, as well as a nice little writeup of the 140.6 mile event itself. 
Stay Tuned (or don't)!
