Good, albeit short, ride last night. I want to double up that ride, but that may have to wait until after I return from our trip.
   
Fun ride last night. It certainly helped wash away the day. If you look close, you'll see that the sign says Six Flags. That drop to the left is a pretty good one. * #mtb #singletrack #swflorida #cycling #cyclingshots

5:45 AM spin class, brought down the hammer.  We have these new bikes that actually have fairly accurate power readings.  I set my "FTW", which I think is Functional Threshold Wattage, to my FTP and the effort level felt about right throughout the session.  Too bad it doesn't connect to my Garmin and transfer the power numbers.

Training session. 3 rounds of upper body, 3 rounds of lower body. Then a song's worth of squats and a song's worth of pushups. Torture, in the best possible way.

Kevin really wanted to do a Big Trip to celebrate our 25 anniversary next year. We found a cruise from Rome to Venice that is the same week as our anniversary.  We went ahead and booked it today.

8:41 AM: OK so gonna try that short bike again. Will probably not be 25 full miles. Will use the path, see how it goes. Maybe CX bike or Lucy, if CX is buried under the rest of the bikes. It's the longest day of the year today! Hooooray! 
3:54 PM: Just heard that Trudy crashed her bike today also. Ugh. All my friends are crashing. She separated her shoulder. She will be immobilized for 2 weeks and then see how she does. Boooooo. At least she's not in the hospital. So that's a silver lining I guess. Short Walk 3-4 miles  Long Walk 9 miles  
Short Swim (2300-2500)  Long Swim (3200-3600)  Short Bike (25-30 miles) ← Optional Swim (easy easy)  Optional Walk (easy easy easy to post office no longer) Long Bike (Swedish Days 100) 6/25/2017 Work Travel Thursday night→Friday night Rest Day (Friday if I can make it that long)

Adventures in traffic last night! I wanted to go to Target to get a natural deodorant I keep seeing online that they allegedly carry - and there was one a few miles from the office so I set out. But my GPS hadn't configured right out of the parking garage so I turned the wrong way and SAT FOR 20 MINUTES. It's fine. Totally normal. I ain't mad at ya Atlanta. But when I got moving, the Target was not where the GPS said it was, so I had to re-route to another Target 20 more minutes away (only a few miles). Finally, inside Target, and they didn't carry the product. LOL! I needed food anyway, but just had to laugh.

Super tired and unmotivated today. Had a good strength workout and a couple of Pop Tarts (dangerous to go to the grocery store in this state of mind) and felt better

Signing up for an online meal planning service called The 6 oclock scramble. We are really stuck in a rut with meals around here eating the same boring things over and over and over again. There is a 14 day free trial so if I don't use it or don't like I need to remember to cancel it or I'll be charged for 3 months. Little Miss is having very few food reactions since going gluten free and starting CoEnzyme A  (recommended by several on the Citric Acid forum). 
Ack wound up sick today! First thing in the morning right out of bed I went to WalMart for groceries and got a Starbucks coffee on the way home. Came home and put the groceries away, ate breakfast, drank half the coffee and took an allergy pill and my stomach revolted. Took two doses of Pepto and laid down back in bed for 30 min. Barely ate anything the rest of the day and felt bad but made it through swim lessons ok. I thought it was just the Starbucks but DS threw up at bedtime so maybe we have some kind of a stom[...]

The bike is in the van for later today. Hopeful, but not too optimistic that the rain will hold out. 
Work has been a clusterf*ck lately (again). I am stuck in a Catch 22 of sorts and have to find a way through this mess.
This conversation when I got home last night just cracked me up:
