We got in about 7:30 this morning, but took a looong nap and didn't really do much. So little in fact that Case left his phone plugged in upstairs and didn't check it until tonight only to find that the HR person had called him about the railroad job. I doubt she'll be in tomorrow, but there's maybe a slight chance since the training class starts in two weeks. I really don't see her calling to say he DIDN'T get it. I imagine she was calling to schedule the physical.

Find out what I can do

Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. - Helen Keller
You always hear the last line of this quote, but I think the first three sentences are every bit as good as the last.
I've got a new little concrete patch in the hall closet.  Unfortunately they cut a hole in the dry wall, and I've got to get my dry wall guy to come patch a 3"x5" hole in the wall.  I'll probably wait till winter because I've got a piece of drywall loose on my porch ceiling and there's a bird nest up there.  I saw baby birds poking their heads over the edge to get fed by mama bird the other day.  Cute.  Have to wait until nesting season is over before dry wall work.  I could paint the closet as long as everything is out though.  And as long as I've got to handle everyth[...]

Just Enjoy the Moment

I have a 20 minute run today.  And maybe a quick ride on my lunch break.  
I expect to be working late again.....so OVER this foolishness.  John might go play golf after work so I might go hit the pool if he does.  Got out before 6 PM...a record!  But of course I signed in at 7 and should have only worked until 5......we won't go there.
Pool was a little busy.....Found someone to split with.  Water was cloudy --milky looking.  Just gross.  I got out when I could tell things were falling apart.  Spent some time in the hot tub which felt wonderful.

"GET TO MILE 18 on the run!"

Stats taken after run and before dinner, %water 70.3, muscle 39.2, bone 4.1. Followed the plan for today. Swim first and trying to work with my Finis Tempo Trainer again after many years of non use. Need more work, felt like I was rushing and not really catching the water too well. Splits don't really look too hot. So, what I probably need to do is have a longer day next weekend there to determine my optimal rate like the manual says.

Then went for more bike fitting. Jamie B, my sponsor and owner of Mercury Endurance Cycles, fixed a few things like knees bowing out (shimmed the cleat), raised seat a bit and maybe aerobars slightly as well. So hopefully opened my hips up a bit more. Put different footbeds in my shoes that use whole foot rather than just the outside and metatarsals. So, will see how this setup works for 5.5 hours tomorrow.

Lastly, Z2 run. Per my thoughts earlier this week, decided to keep this to around an hour. Plus I used my new Altra Torin 1.5s! [...]

Derek's Du Log

Well, I did my first double today.  It went well considering.  Started out cool around 60 or a little more but there was a cool breeze. I knew I would bike also so I went in the neighborhood,that being 4 Seasons and Monterrey.  It is a pretty good loop but it is somewhat hilly.  When I finished I had gone 6.4miles in 55:08 so around 8:39/mile.  Fastest this stint.  I walked the dogs and changed into bike clothes.  Hit the road on the new bike and it was not so good.  Went down to Glendale and out 222 to 62.  Made the way back to Cecilia Smith Mill Road and then onto Bacon Creek past Mom's.  Hit 222 and returned the same way I came out.  All in all it was 23.4miles or so but it was only 14.4mph.  Still have trouble with the gears and I may need to have them moved.  All in all I went around 30 miles and did so in right at an hour and a half.  Not bad for an old amateur.  Next time.

I've still not learned which buttons to press (or not press) on my phone... Here is another messed up photo... from last night. This must have happened when I was handing the phone over to the lady that took the pic.
RANDOM.
