I moved in & out of the high impact stuff.  My legs just don't do jumping jacks without issues and lateral squat jumps on carpet =trying not to trip for me.  Definitely a good sweat though.

Happy Total Eclipse day! We didn't get the special glasses that let you look at the eclipse. I think most of the office is planning to go outside and experience the brief mid-day darkening. Took a look at the weather and there's a pretty good chance of t-storms at that time.

Our local Hy-Vee now carries chile peppers from Hatch, New Mexico, and I think Steve and one of his buddies bought them out. We roasted and bagged 30 pounds of chile over the weekend. I don't really care for them, they're a bit too spicy for my taste, but the smell of roasting chile is incredible and it's a fun tradition.

My back is still stiff -- kind of threw it out again moving a heavy bag of kitty litter yesterday. Not painful, just not 100 percent. I'm thinking some yoga is inorder.

Little Miss slept until 9:45 which is the latest I have every known her to sleep! She must have really needed that. I, on the other hand, woke up at 4:45 and couldn't fall back to sleep. Then I remembered I was out of coffee so went to Walmart first thing at 5:15 yuck. 

HASfit today 15 min legs and 13 min obliques.
Did not want to do this.
I'll be happy when this program is over ugh. So tired of every muscle being sore. DH looks at me like just quit already lol.

Super long race report about my awful race in yesterday's log. I was really disappointed, more than anything, in my finish time. I've finished this race on 3:02 and 2:58 the past two years. They did add some singletrack this year that probably added 5-10 minutes, but that's not enough to account for me finishing in 3:22. The year I finished in 3:02, I did less training than this year, so I can't even chalk it up to having a busy month and not riding. My body just rebelled, for whatever reason.
The most frustrating part for me is that I hired a good coach this year, and while my hours haven't always been high and I have missed a few workouts, I have, for the most part, done more structured smart training this year than I ever had, and so I was hoping to see some good results in the races I have done previously. But the two races I did that I've done in previous years (Firecracker and King of the Rockies), I totally blew up and finished a good 15-20 minutes slower than last year. I k[...]

Spent the afternoon since getting home from church working on this weeks paper.  I have a rough draft--very rough.  It needs a good bit of tweaking to be something I would be proud to turn in.
I hate missing gorgeous days that I could ride my bike, but I know that once this degree is completed I will be able to resume my life a little more.

These past couple weeks have been exhausting. I am okay with the training, but the new job stress and extra work really got me. I have made it through another Ironman training block. Happy taper! :-)

Happy Sunday! I haven't been posting my workouts here, as I couldn't seem to get the log to save. Hopefully, it works today. :) Have been back to running more than lifting, and trying to find a good a balance between the two. I ran yesterday and plan to run today again, and do some body weight strength training. Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Failed to pack makeup and hairgel. Wore this horribly unflattering shirt (and Garmin) to a nice dinner. I was honest-to-God too tired to care. Celebrated the end of this build with a nice glass of sparkling Rose.  Left dinner early to go upstairs and sleep.
