Gardened for almost five hours today. Probably would have been easier on the body to just workout.

Did new hire paperwork this morning for the CNA job. I can't start 'til Wednesday since I had to get a tb test. It's going to be a bit wild, but I'm looking forward to it. I think it will actually help with stress levels since it will go a long way for me feeling more financially secure and work itself doesn't tend to stress me much.

Had a good run this morning, nothing too extreme, that's for sure.  I've been fighting with the charger for my Timex, it seems to be running currently, but I have an email into them for a new one. In other workout related happenings, I was hit in the back of my neck by a drone yesterday while finishing up my run at the park. Some douschnozzle was flying the thing, lost control of it in the rain and it decided I looked like a good place to land.  It didn't really hurt at all, but it sure was a bit surprising.
BIP started last night.  There were tears, beers, fears, and more immature hotties than you'd find at the local high school prom.  Ah yes, there was also the ever popular combo of testosterone, alcohol and egos.  It is on again tonight, because once a week is just not enough time for this much insanity.  Add on the recap show on Monday and there are 5 hours of this stupidity a week. And yes, there is a good chance that I'll make an effort to follow[...]

Yeah.... I didn't do the remaining 4 miles this morning. I almost got out of bed to do it... but I didn't.
Recovery week.
Dinner tonight with my friend Kathy.
The list of things I need to get done this recovery week is staggering: Oil change <-- this probably won't get done. Haircut. (I cut it myself. As predicted by Chris... that was a disaster)  Dinner in the city with Chris Coordinate getting back to work on Thursday AM with Brant. Dinner today with Kathy Ride bikes Tuesday night with Amy. Coordinate bike + potential masters + working.  Swim Wednesday AM? Tuesday AM early? Masters? Oooooohhhh the M word. Take a half day Friday. Walk 2x

Joined the neighborhood Anytime Fitness for the month of August in order to keep up the strength training over the August Recess ...while the machines look familiar the weights did not correspond to what I was I doing in DC - at all as I found myself doing 2/3rds of the weights here than there.

Regardless, it was a good workout (except the shoulder tweak in squat to military press).

I am going to did out the old Triathlete Training Guide and Going Long to see what exercises they recommend. My goal is not "show muscles" but functional strength that will translate to swim/bike/run (the swim part is not as important as I plan to focus on trail running over the winter.)

Palm Coast workout (again) ...did not finish Squat to Military Press as right shoulder tweaked a little.

KOM'd it! Got the south to north Zorinsky dam climb KOM! woot! Best time of the year and tied with 2 other guys for best time ever! Buahahaha

It seriously almost killed me though, I'm surprised I'm not peeing blood after that. I was really hurting for about 20 minutes afterward. Started to feel like myself again for a while and then the end of the ride just felt really long.

Will run at lunch, though debating on either dreadmill or brave the 100 degrees outside? 
I'm also going to be applying for a job tonight with another firm which is for a position that I haven't done before, but I think I could handle.  Also waiting to hear from the last remaining lawyer at my previous firm to see whether he'll be staying or going... if he stays, there's a chance of me going back, but if he goes... I'm going to contact the HR there and just ask them to keep me in mind if they happen to need an IP paralegal in their Austin office again.

Some hip exercises. While I wait for my doc to get back from vacation, I may as well keep my other hip strong since I'm leaning on it so much. R hip is decent today - still hobbling/limping, but the bone itself didn't hurt today.
