I can tell I am deep into Ironman training - so hungry all the time! Trying to control this hunger and trying to make good food choices, but it is not easy to do. Also, time is limited. I have to schedule when I am cleaning the condo, when I am grocery shopping, when I am doing laundry, etc. Of course, I am fortunate to be able to do this!!! I always try to remember that. So many people would love to have the opportunity to do this.

Busy morning and afternoon with work and work meetings. I now officially the lead Clin Ops on 3 studies - 2 Alzheimers and 1 schizophrenia. Exciting studies.

Wasn't organized enough to hit spin class before work so I did the strength video early.  Hope to take the bike out this evening, even if just a short ride.
Is there anything worse than wasting an hour in a meeting on a committee you were NEVER asked if you would participate on....just a command performance of another version of reinventing the wheel.  SIGH, this is the same old same old at work.

How's this for unflattering photos? 

Chris looks skinny young and tired, and I look like I'm trying not to throw up. My eye makeup is smeared under my eyes, and my eyebrows are SERIOUS. July 2010. 6 years ago. I do still love those earrings!  
Well we just booked our trip to France/Switzerland! We're hoping to spend a little more relaxed time in Paris (last time we went we ran around like lunatics)... and then head over to Montreux Switzerland for Freddie Mercury's 70th birthday bash. Yes. You read that correctly.

3+ hour delay on ground in Dallas returning from Memphis. Didn't get to bed until 2:40am LA time (4:40 Memphis time). Was hoping to swim before work, but not a realistic option after a 22 hour day and <5 hours of sleep.

Tucson intervals 4x5 min (1 min). Heat + backpack + attitude + up at three = slow intervals.

8:53, 9:13, 9:11, 8:43.

Neck is tight still. I think much of this is due sitting and working on beds and couches.

My family leaves for a holiday tomorrow morning and so I'm not sure how I'll get in the mid-week workouts.  My dog will be crated all day - longer than he's accustomed to - so I don't want to crate him in the morning when he's all dopey or after work having been in the crate all day by himself.  I know he'll panic and whine if I just leave him out and slip out for a run. Might just replace them with some good hilly hikes with the dog.  If the heat doesn't do him in.  It's only 1 or 2 runs so not too bad.

Felt super tired at the end of the day. i am going to go to the dr to get a tetanus shot today so i'll also ask about my B12 levels. My period is over so i shouldn't feel so very fatigued. I slept hard, and to be truthful, most nights i do get 8 hours or very near to 8 hours of sleep. I track it with my vivoactive.

Ewwwwww.... sooooo much ewwwww on this morning's run!
76* (real feel of 86*) with 93% humidity...  EWWWWWWW!!!  
I had a sore throat yesterday & didn't feel like eating pretty much anything for dinner last night, so this morning I slowed the run WAY down & when I started to feel a bit light headed & woozy, I stopped to take an extra walk break or two.  I was supposed to do an hour, but I figured 50 minutes was close enough & I'd rather stop BEFORE falling over.  
Crazy to think that our house is going to go on the market as early as next Thursday!
