really slow run on the trail. Perfect day. Haven't run this direction in a long while. I love how focused you have to be on the trail. Just my own breath and the sounds of fall critters in the woods. Ahhhhh.

My bad knee did not appreciate the burpees yesterday....
I woke up to my alarm this morning and hemmed and hawed about going to swim.  My knee was sore, but more than that if I am wishy washy, it usually means I need to take a break...so I did.  Likely will have to take a couple more days for my knee as well.  No more burpees for me.

By contrast, this is easily my favorite workout of the week. Back and bicep day. Lats were smoked by the end of the main workout then I added in more pullups with:

A) Pullups, submax
B) Box Jumps x # of pullups
Repeat until 60 reps of each are done - 11:24
That got rough, took ten rounds, was down to sets of 4 by the end

I got nothing done yesterday. Made a half-assed attempt to finish my commission which didn't work, didn't even bother to start the next one, and never made it to the gym. At least I redeemed myself by getting some business done and getting in a short ride and core workout later. But still, ugh. Today I'm dropping the kids at school and doing NOTHING ELSE until I finish that awful commission, and block in the next one. Then I'm going to go ride my bike - it's too nice out to stay inside!
Startled this guy when I dropped between two houses onto the trail at Dedisse - we had a little staring contest and then he went back to eating his grass and I rode by carefully. It's rutting season here so I don't really like to be too close to the bull elk, but he was a bachelor and looked pretty young. 

Took a geeky photo of my bike in it's natural habitat. It may be old and cheap, but this thing is my most prized possession. I came seriously close to a major meltdown about not having i[...]

Good to be back home. We took the cats with us in the motorhome. Harvey travels well and really, we could do anything to him and he’d be happy. Niblet was not amused. He didn’t get carsick this time, but he really doesn’t enjoy traveling. He was happy to be back home.

Foot doctor says it’s time for surgery but he won’t do it though until I get the heart issue fixed. I have an appointment with the cardiologist in a couple of weeks. We’ll see how things go there, but I don’t think anything will be happening here in the immediate future. I’m going to keep plugging away here doing what I can and keeping the nutrition tight to get myself in shape. I need to focus on what I CAN do instead of what I can’t do.

I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that it's FRIDAY!!! 
The bad thing is that I'll be alone for the weekend as Tony's gone to Sin City for a guy's weekend for his 40th birthday.  The good news is that I can go ride and run tomorrow, hopefully go hang out with Katie & Molly at some point, and then Sunday I'm going on a motorcycle ride with a couple of people from work and then a bike ride and a swim.  Oh, and my previous boss is in town and wants to meet up - which is good, but he's in town because his grandma passed away, which is never an easy thing.  I hope he's okay.  
I'm now at home with the kitties, 2 bottles of wine and no idea what the heck I'm going to eat because the kitchen and I have an agreement that I don't go in there, and in return, it doesn't catch on fire.  
Bring on the weekend!!!  :D
