I guess it's a good thing it's my "off" season. My time off since completing Ironman has been busy. Mostly busy with things that were neglected during the challenging summer of training. You know, little things like yardwork, house work, and other similar tasks.
When our pastor's computer was first purchased, I took charge of it for a few days, installed some top-tier anti-virus software, explained how to ensure it was updated, and set it up to update and scan automatically. Unfortunately, I overlooked one small detail. The computer spends most of its time disconnected from the Internet and shut down.
This weekend has been dedicated to undoing the damage that has been done over the past several weeks. The numbers I've been dealing with sound something like Ironman training and racing. Numbers like 135. That's the number of spyware programs identified on the first check. Or 3:57. That's how long the first deep anti-virus scan took to complete.
And I have to get this resolved in the very near future. It is only a few short days until I go into the winter training mode. October is going to be "get back into the swing of things" month. And November will be the second annual "Swim every day for a month" program. December through April will be a series of six to eight week programs aimed at greatly improving my aerobic base while helping improve my run pace.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
