Yep, like I thought, between my shoulders and the base of my neck is sore today. 
Church, bleached the baseboards, trim and window sills in the living room, scrubbed little misses bathroom then more work outside. We really wanted to see how the pool looks after the winter but that meant we had to clean the pool cover off or all the dirt and leaves that the cover has caught will go straight into the pool. Cleaned that and the pool actually does not look that bad at all. The water is clear. We are not ready to open it for swimming so now we'll have to close it right back up but at least we know how it looks lol. Potted up my flowers, moved a bunch of lamb's ear around in one of my flower gardens, took the dog for a short walk then the bike ride! Busy day at home.
We are in a rut with Church. I've been Catholic my whole life but I am just not feeling inspired at all when I go to mass anymore. The kids are bored. DH said he's been feeling the same way. We need a change I think b[...]

Not much happening around here today. Fred is out in the front field with the brush mower and I'm cleaning inside. We've had an infestation of stink bugs that are just driving me crazy! These are a different variety than we've had in the past. These are shorter with a shield like back. I'm finding them everywhere and it's extremely annoying. I think by the time they get inside, they are nearly dead, but they are nasty and dirty!

Think I'll walk again this afternoon and wash my car. Me and the cat napped all afternoon yesterday. It was most enjoyable!

On the plus side--glad I didn't try to force Agility X yesterday, I would have died trying.  On the minus side--Not sure that I understood the premise of the workout since it's one borrowed from another program in the hybrid plan.  It was interesting--but his cues were confusing to me and I had no freaking idea what I was supposed to be doing.  Keep moving?  Got that...Look like I could follow directions?  Not so much.

A rainy day to reset things. The kid is coming over to cook dinner to celebrate Jim's 60 birthday, which is next week. The grandkid will be here. She is cute and demanding. Raise strong women, people.??

Pull Drill - Focus will be on learning to 'catch' the water with your forearm and pull yourself through the water. If you feel your lats (the muscles under your arm pits that go down the side of your back) engage, then you are starting to get it. If your shoulders are tired, then you are still using too much shoulder and not enough lats.

Kick (Regular) - regular kickboard kick or kick on back with hands over head, fingers locked.

Hell yeah! Long run and I killed it! Ran with Chris, we did 4x1 and talked the whole way--which is a big deal because Chris usually can't hold a conversation when we run, so he just listens to his headphones (weak, I know). So it was great! Weather was mid-40s to low 50s and wind was very light. Perfect running weather! Ran around both sides of Lake Z, then did another mile and back along the same path to get our 9 in. Great run! Felt awesome during and after!
