I am really so upset about my back :(

No swimming this morning.  I woke up at 4:30 and my back still hurt.  I stood up and walked around to see if maybe some movement would help, but no luck.  Swimming has never hurt me before, but I still decided to skip it just in case... didn't want to risk anything making this worse, especially since I have a couple flights later this afternoon with long periods of sitting.  So I took a naproxen and put some heat on it and stayed in bed for another hour.

I had gone the past 2 weeks relatively pain free since the ESI.. a little sore here and there but nothing huge.  This is as bad as the first pain that made me go see the doctor in the first place (third time this has happened and only after lying on the floor.. 2x at the end of yoga and once after a meditation class at Cindy's studio opening).  

I just don't know what to do.  I really hope this didn't reset my back to before all the physical therapy and[...]

High Altitude

Decided to do the WLC again. I've been slacking lately, and it shows in how I feel. Between Spring Break, being swamped last month, and Easter, I've been eating crap and not cooking enough. I need a kick in the pants to get me organized and cooking better food. My weight hasn't gone up at all since the last WLC, but I feel a bit softer, less strong. It would be nice to lean out a bit and have more steady energy again. The last couple times I did a Whole30 I ended up bailing because I would have one thing off plan and feel frustrated about starting over - I think WLC is what I need right now because it allows for a single mess-up now and again with the points system. I'm also going to attempt to take before photos and measurements so I can track progress better - that always keeps me on track.
Anyhow, leaving for the Springs this afternoon. Going to spend the day finishing a painting and getting the house clean, sheets changed, etc. since my mom and sister will be here watching the [...]

Gonna give my CF gym's new second location a try today! It's all brand spanking shiny with lots of new equipment. The class hours work well for me on some days and it's basically the same distance for me, but to the north, as the original location. I've choices now to get my douchebaggery on!!! I can drive down the street I live off of 1.5 miles or drive up the street I live off of 2.5 miles. Cray!

Taking a rest day before the half-Marathon tomorrow. Letting the body recover just a little. Goal is under 2 hrs, that would be an average 9:10 PPM. Should be able to do it with the extra "Energy" from the crowd.

6:18am:  It's not Friday.  That's okay, though.  I've decided to take next week off -- every few years I like to take a week and do spring cleaning type stuff at home.  And it's time; I've been feeling hemmed in and distracted at home because piles of stuff have started accumulating and such. I'm not much for cleaning or organizing, but I feel like right now I need a house devoid of clutter.  It's a mental thing.
More than that, I just need time off from work.  I've said it before -- I'm so appreciative for my job, but I'm not really feelin' it these days.  My motivation is at an all-time low, and that's seeping into other areas of my life. I need some time to recharge.
Only downside -- with my other vacations planned, that'll pretty much deplete me of days off.  I'll have just a few left and hopefully I don't get sick and need them.
6:57am:  More BTer victims team members for WLC! I'm looking forward to all my friends being along fo[...]

Dare I say it I actually feel better today  I'm not well but better.  Yesterday I was coughing so badly in clinic my patient said to me "Geez doc you sound terrible YOU need a doctor more than I do"  Toying with the idea of trying a trainer ride.  I think I would be winded running roughly 100 yards.  Slept decent and did not have to throw Oliver out of the BR for the first time in ages.  When he tries to chew electrical cords at 3:30am he gets thrown out.  Instead he was picking at the chaise lounge in my BR.  I have some double sided tape on it so the cats won't scratch it and what does destruco-kitty do? He peals it off and tries to eat it.  Geez o pete.  Only I would have cat who could figure that out.

Have to help at LBS to set up for Demo Days on Saturday so instead of riding all over Buffalo I drove today - weak I know but oh well maybe I will go for a night ride to make up for it. I contemplated a run so that is progress right there ;)

What a difference from Freshman to Seniors in track. Son did good time wise but man there are some fast kids out there! He will be doing the 400 next week!

Ouch. This was just a tough workout today. I hated the damn warm up with its 120% + ftp effort, Then, I hated the 3x6 min pyramids, especially the middle two minute efforts at 110% ftp. Then, I hated the 5x3 min time trial efforts...Maybe it was the 4AM wake-up. Maybe it was the damn mosquito that got into my workout room and bit me on the finger Maybe I'm just ready to taper.

Almost there.

I almost talked myself out of going to the gym yesterday, but I'm glad I did.  Workout was ok though I could definitely feel the fatigue.  But when I got home I kept moving and impressed myself with my productivity - did a couple loads of laundry, started packing, and cooked sides for dinner (while Travis grilled steak).
Just 8.5 hours of work now between me and a 4 day weekend!  Flying to NJ tomorrow morning.
