Woke up to run, heard the thunder and rain, went back to sleep. Felt great.

Busy day, taking off at 11 -- the mobile vet is coming out to give Bee another shot of some antibiotic for a mild ear infection. Seems like this stuff is working, as the kitty has been doing very well. Then have to pack for a long weekend down in Tampa. Our flight is at 9, so not worth spending the night in St. Louis, but it sure makes for an early morning.

Will get run and maybe a swim in this afternoon.

Tornadoes in the area last night. It would seem that spring weather is upon us.

6:29am: I overslept this morning, and as a I gradually woke up, my thought was, "Is it Sunday?"
For anybody still wondering, no, it isn't Sunday.
It is, however PAZCKI DAY (weirdly pronounce "poonch-key") -- so I'm hoping some will magically show up in the office. More often than not, they do, but they haven't yet. I still have hope.
And then -- Lent. I'm not sure what, if anything, I'm going to give up for Lent this year. I was pondering doing the everyone's-go-to-Lent-thing of giving up sweets, but that seems so overdone. Might still do it. I have today to figure it out.
Thunderstorms today -- glad Belle decided to cooperate and go for a walk this morning since she'll be in hiding most of the day, I suspect -- and we're back to near-record highs after the weekend of normal, winter weather. I think Mother Nature is bipolar these days. Mind you -- I'm not complaining because we never have winters like this, with no snow and a lot of warm weather -- but it's still kind of weir[...]

Going to give a 1.25 mile run a shot tonight. Need to build quick up to 3 before mid march when half mary training officially starts. Was hoping to be further than I am but being sick didn't help. And then Gold Nugget Tri registration is tomorrow night at 8pm. Last year sold out in 2.5 minutes and this year is a entirely new system on how to register. Will see if I make it or not.

Lift 2 Swim 2 Swim 3?(Saturday AM?)
Bike 1 (1:00) Bike 2 (I need to stop ignoring these) 1:30 Run 1 (1:00) Run 2 (1:40)
Bike 1 today at lunchtime. Then home at a decent hour to relax. Chris is out of town. I have 2 Datelines and part of an HBO miniseries to watch! AND This is Us is on tonight. I've got my work cut out for me.

Sore but in a good way. I did a lot of legs yesterday and I feel today like I did a lot of legs. That's perfect. Exactly what we hope for. Nothing feels injured, unusual, stiff, sore or painful. Nothing new, at least.

Grabbed my old old old cycling shoes with the SPD cleats on them to use today on the spin bike at lunch. They were absolutely covered in dirt and spiderwebs and spider egg sacs and all kinds of other detritus which collects in a garage over the course of about 10 years. I threw them into a bag and cleaned them here in the office with Clorox Wipes. I hope they fit. I don't know if my feet have grown or expanded, but we'll see. I al[...]

It's my actual birthday today, and even though we had a family dinner the other night, my mom is insisting that she takes me out to dinner. I protested a little bit just saying I would eat at home since I'm working super late, but she convinced me to meet up. 
Hilariously, our department admin sent me the standard "mini cupcake sampler" that everyone gets for their birthdays before she realized I couldn't eat any of it. She had to ask a co-worker to intercept the package but it was still brought up here anyway since we weren't going to throw it away. I think I had an edible arrangement of fruit coming tomorrow. It's the thought that counts.

Incision area is closed again, but still tender. Still feeling tired. I am getting extra sleep. Many more days of the antibiotic. I took it after I got off the bike this morning and didn't have any problems. I think that this is the solution.

My eating is out of control. I have gained back the pounds I had lost. :-(

Home. We spent two nights at Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara. Definitely a great place to take kids. Felicity loved it.

Surgery was today. It was not the best experience of my life. I really hurt right now, mostly just sitting up and walking.
