So far in 2016 I've biked half as far as I did in all of 2015!

Took today completely off from working out of any kind. If I'd had time I would have gone swimming but work is just super busy right now (I'm quoting turn times for two weeks out currently when my normal turn time is 1 week) so that has been taking precedent. Plus looking through my logs I needed a day to take it easy. I'm still in newbie base training mode anyway so no sense overdoing things with no real purpose or intention.

Today's ride was probably the first ride since breaking my rib where I really thought, "Ok, I'm back!" Did a somewhat difficult climbing ride, and did it at a pace that isn't too far off of my normal rides on that route. I definitely feel like the rib feels good enough for solid training on the road now. And once the trails up here dry, I'm going to start in with some easy mountain bike miles. WOOT!

Had a horrible headache and was so tired last night. Still feeling the same this morning. Skipped the swim and slept in until 6. I am sure it is just due to stress. Mike's parents left yesterday. I need to stop worrying so much!

I have a bit more respect for yesterday's weight class this morning. My shoulders and triceps are pleasantly sore and I can feel some core muscles.

Heading to pilates this morning, then meeting mom for a little flower shopping and lunch. We're heading out on a trip tomorrow. Going to an air force reunion down in Cincy. Should be a good time and the hotel we're stay at overlooks the Ohio river. I've been missing the river. :)

The brush mower I was pushing yesterday snagged a log and whipped around on me catching my arm on the handle. I've got a nice gash and knot. I'm lucky it didn't hit me hard enough to more serious damage. That would sure put a damper on my summer plans. I need to be more careful.

Learned today that one of my close co-workers is getting a divorce. This makes me sad on so many levels, mostly because they have a 6-month old son. She has done an incredible job of keeping her personal life separate from work (I had NO idea), but now that I know the bigger picture I'm hopeful I can be more supportive and sensitive to her situation. Hate hearing this kind of news.
On a more exciting note, there's a job opening in Atlanta that popped up today that meets my career goals. I hate to even blog about it so early, but it excited me! It's with a different division of our parent company, but EXACTLY the job I am looking to move into. And in Atlanta. Need to chat with my boss about it this afternoon.
Last update: Took Bentley to the vet and he has a lower back injury, probably disc related. They gave him some anti-inflammatory pills and said to try and keep him calm, but he will come around slowly. They also warned that he will very likely re-injure himself in the same pl[...]

I just realized I had run around 400 miles on my shoes, which I bought a year ago.  Too much and too long!  No wonder running has been difficult lately.   Geesh. I also got a new type of shoe, the Gel Kayano.  I am going to do a better job of tracking when i wear these, which will be most of the time anyway.

Video'd some of my swim this morning. Hopefully, coach can see enough in it to help me with my form. 
The actual workout was a challenge, and took me a bit longer than I thought it would. My goggles kept fogging, too. Will have to put some baby shampoo in them this evening. It did give me an excuse to pause between some intervals, though. That's both frustrating and enjoyable at the same time. Trying to do 8 x 50 on 45" is tough, so a few extra seconds to catch my breath as I cleared my goggles was quite welcome.
Hard to believe it's already Wednesday. In a few days, a bunch of folks will be in for baby girl's baptism. It will be nice to see them, but also will present a challenge in getting my workouts in. Such is the life of a parent . . .

Incline BB sets 3-6 were back-to-back. Couldn't get the 12-15 reps on 3rd set of 115, so I dropped wieght and kept going.
