Cyclist, runner, weight-lifter, motorcycle-racer, so a lot of those sports I do have to deal with speed.  So I, I take wheelchair track, wheelchair racing, hand cycling, I do some strength training on my own, or I go to a gym, and another thing is swimming.  Swimming’s going to the be toughest part because of my level of injury, being a T4-T5 right here, my, my bottom is like a boat anchor dragging along the floor.  So, I’m trying to figure out what I can do to help make the upper part stay planer, so that way I can actually go through the water instead of dragging myself through.  But I do wheelchair racing, hand cycling, swimming, and hopefully I’ll start triathlons.  It’s only been a year and a half, so I’m trying to pace myself a bit.
