Hamstring issue seems resolved...for now. No problem on longest ride of the year. Planning to try for at least 7.5 miles on the trails in the morning.

Wanted to ride today but didn't get to it boo. Swam then had to go shopping for wedding clothes for DS and I for my nieces wedding next weekend. Found nothing for me but a couple of shirts for DS. Then some quick grocery shopping because the neighborhood kids are eating all of our food all the time. When I got home DH and I decided to clean the garage and there went the rest of the afternoon. It was after 4:00 when we finally finished. Cat hair everywhere. We rearranged a bunch, threw away a bunch, swept up a bunch of cat hair. Check that project off of the summer vacation things to do list! 

HASfit 20 min abs workout but your working more than just your abs in this one.

Doc sent me for blood work yesterday after my appointment to test thyroid levels and some other things. My medication dosage has been increased very slightly. Blood results should be back by Wednesday and I have a follow-up appointment with doc on Thursday to discuss. If my levels are in range, the plan is to keep on on the slightly increased dose for another few weeks. If I still am not feeling better then I should go to an Endocrine specialist that can work with me on a different type of thyroid medication (natural vs synthetic). I have very mixed feelings about this. Just hoping the increased dose will help.
Oh - the doc also wanted to discuss my allergy and asthma medications since I was wheezing and coughing. I can't deal with that now, too. One thing at a time. I know things are not the best, but I am hoping some of this pollen will go away and it will get better. It doesn't help that the condo we rent doesn't have A/C (not many places along the coast have it since i[...]

I had noticed a hole in my yard a week or so ago, and now I know:  I've got a burgeoning bunny family in there. Saw the baby both last night and this morning, just hanging out right by it -- not really moving AT ALL (I probably got within a few feet of it and it didn't even seem to twitch at all). Saw what I think it the mama bunny this morning. I guess I never really knew where bunnies had nests, but apparently they dig holes? I'll do what I can to protect without interfering. :)
Up early to do grocery shopping before mobs hit the store. Then an easy 3 miles outside. Now I really need to be productive and I just haven't gotten up the motivation to get up off the couch yet.

Went out early this morning to get a good parking spot at the Honor Ride. I had originally planned to park here in town and ride one way, but found out that all of the bling was at the finish line, so I opted for the shorter route. 15 miles is about my upper limit these days. It was a nice day to ride. Overcast, not too hot and a relatively flat course. Almost didn't go because I have so much to do here, but I decided since I paid for it, I may as well get the benefit of riding. Really happy I went - of course that's almost always the way it happens. Good way to start the weekend! Now, back to painting.....

Pull Drill - Focus will be on learning to 'catch' the water with your forearm and pull yourself through the water. If you feel your lats (the muscles under your arm pits that go down the side of your back) engage, then you are starting to get it. If your shoulders are tired, then you are still using too much shoulder and not enough lats.

Kick (Regular) - regular kickboard kick or kick on back with hands over head, fingers locked.

Slept in, then rolled to Russell Street Deli for kick soup and sandwich in Eastern Market. Hit the meat markets before we left and headed home. Decent weather at least today. Love seeing hustle and bustle in the D!

We had a really good little runaway! The kids and dog missed us!

Ended up with impromptu deck parties. First my ffriends came over then the neighbors were second crew. Very fun breaking in of deck, somehow managed to get over 8000 steps which is pretty impressive for me without having worked out.
