Planning to ride today, but prob in the gym.

---
Just me being a nerd here. I went back to compare 2012 and 2014 at B2B. Both years, I will admit that I went as hard as I could have with the fitness I had at the time. I don't race any other way.



SWIM:
IMO, the swim currents were similar during 2012 and 2014. Improved swim by two minutes, but more importantly, moved up significantly in the standings, both overall and AG. Improvement.

T1:
During both years, I exited the water at around the same effort. In 2012, I didn't have any hiccups and was out quickly. In and out. For 2014, and basing it off the 2012 T1, I'm assuming the helmet malfunction cost me around 2 mins, which is how much the 1AG guy beat me by.

BIKE:
2012 had some winds (mostly headwinds), which at times were kind of strong. 2014 had light winds, with some tailwinds towards the end. Improved by over 8 mins, but more importantly, moved up in OA and AG standings. Improvement.

T2:
Slightly faste[...]

October's totals
Swim: 5h 28m 43s - 19123 Yd
Bike: 26h 40m 38s - 550.08 Mi
Run: 21h 34m 56s - 156.05 Mi

September's totals
Swim: 5h 16m 58s - 18683 Yd
Bike: 25h 06m 22s - 521.1 Mi
Run: 17h 34m 53s - 119.89 Mi

This month represented what may be icing on top of icing. IOW a little too much racing. Miami 70.3 just seemed over the top in terms of racing. It was a solid but unspectacular race in the face of dwindling total volume and near absent intensity. My head and body both just wanted to chill out so I was flogging them as much as I could. My swim really dropped off these last two months and my bike and run are just barely acceptable as far as my general liking. Hopefully I can join the pool again, get started back there with some consistency, and get back to more biking and running, prior to another drop off during December. I'd really like to crack 2000 running miles for the year.

It's been a tough week.  My neck went out of place moving something last Saturday.  I just saw the chiropractor.  I don't think I like this 40 thing.

Heading out in the woods this morning for some brush mowing and burning. We had clouds overnight, so everything should be relatively dry. Meant to go down and do some upper body this morning, but got caught up looking up exercises on the internet and never made it down to actually do any of them. Oops. :) Abs are still sore!

I got another shot in my spine!  This time it was a cortisone shot, which I guess is different than the steroid injection?  This is probably stuff I should've asked, but I was too focused on the needle going into my spine .  It wasn't as bad as the ESI and I don't think it went in as deep.  The spot of the injection is a LOT higher on my back then I'd think, and definitely higher then where I told him it hurt, but I didn't notice this until I got home and looked in the mirror at the band-aid.  It *does* seem to feel better, but I'm thinking that's the placebo effect since doctor says it would be ~3 days for it to really work.

Happy Halloween.  Have a spooktacular Friday!!
The powers that be in my work place decided that there would be a big phone upgrade last night.  So we all had to leave our phones unplugged for some new push to the routers.  I have the feeling that today will suck monkey balls as no one will be able to get the darn thing to work. Oh it sucks the big fat hairy monkey balls all right.  There is a "bridge line" to call for assistance.  It is a complete clusterfuck.  50 people trying to speak at once and no specific answers.   mess.  AND  they put me on the later person list again.  I just did it 2 weeks ago!!   mess.
