6:07am:  Okay, so this is what I don't get:  I wake up at 3:30am and for the life of me, cannot fall back to sleep before my alarm goes off at 4:30am.  However, in the 10 minutes after hitting the snooze button, I manage to conk out completely.
Anyway.  Trainer beatdown after work, and then I'll get out for a run or walk, depending on how I feel.
As always, I have a million things to do between now and leaving for Canada at 7am on Saturday. Going to try and be uber-organized this time around ... the goal is that I'll be able to do nothing Friday evening except sit and watch some TV before going to bed early.

Spent all day today doing laundry. And cleaning up. And nursing my hangover. 
Out last night to celebrate my friend Kristin, who is going into lockdown for a body building competition she's doing. 18 weeks. No alcohol. No restaurant food. No fun. No...nothing. 
So we whooped it up at Cooper's Hawk for one last night. Got home at almost 3 am. Those young kids can really party. Haha

So I have a large ovarian cyst that is causing a lot of discomfort in me. I'm going in for a small procedure on August 25th to relieve me of it. I'm going to keep moving however. Can't do anything about it but exercise keeps the blood flowing. Hope you're all enjoying summer, I know I am.

My baby is 22 today. Well, not my baby. My eldest. She's still my baby though. :)

Long slog of a ride today. Very mentally and physically tired. Not a great ride by any means, but done. I'll take done.

A biker got hit today in the park. In a park with signs to share the road with bikes...because there are ALWAYS bikers in the road in this park. I swear. No where is safe to ride a damn bike anymore. GRRRR.

Post ride, got cleaned up and took Kaity to the mall to shop (which is usually a frustration for us both as she never wants me to BUY her anything...) and success. She got a pair of converse sneakers, two sweaters and a shirt at JCrew. That was a small miracle! Then we had birthday dinner at Granite City with the family, Sherry and her bestie Nicole. Bad food choices, beer and a happy girl. Now I need sleep!

So I am pretty much convinced I cannot do that 104 mile mountain bike race in 6 weeks.

One week I will be traveling Mon - Fri and there is a possibility that I will have to go to Japan in August as well.

Still thinking though

A complete success. I was quite nervous driving the course the night before. The rolling hills seemed pretty freakin' tough. On the course, the downhills mitigated the uphills to a degree. There were some long, tough climbs. However, the boy soldiered through. Slingshot successful.

What to do today, swim bike or run??????
The block party was fun. The kids always have a ball running wild with all their friends.

Broke out my exercise plan that the personal trainer created for me this winter. Planks - I did 4x, push ups - on my knees and only 2 sets of 15 (wimpy), squats, lunges added some burpees, core stuff

it was a good iron training weekend.  Pushing thru the pain and the hurt.  There were a bunch, bunches of bunches of snotty triathletes out there today.  WTF? Am I THAT fat and old that you can't even say hi or wave or ANYTHING????  Just scream at me when you blow by in a giant pack of riders.  Just blow by, don't say anything to me when we are ALL stopped a the same place?  CLEARLY I am a triathlete, CLEARLY I am riding long.  Ego filled idiot males.  Even at the pool I will be swimming and no one even will share a lone with me when I offer.  I am going to stop offering to let anyone get in my lane.
