I needed the stretch after Jo's stackers last night.  PiYo drench lived up to the name.  Sweaty, hot mess.  
Intervals at lunch.
PHEW!!  Looks like ex is not involved with the biology side of the research that Miss Thing is doing.  Worst case scenario is they might have to be in the lab concurrently.  Miss Thing has 2-3 semesters of research with this professor, most people only get 1 semester.  She can drop it if she doesn't want to continue, but it's 1 credit hour per semester PLUS internship hours which Longwood requires.
Thing One is coming home this weekend, her roommate might be coming with her.

Home from the doc. The crazy prep had me up at 1 am and I didn't sleep much afterwards. I'm tired and crampy, so I'll take it easy today. We may go see "A Walk in the woods" tonight, but I'll likely spend the day re-reading the book and go see the movie tomorrow.

I've decided to pass on IMKY this year. It would be different if I knew someone racing, but there is a chance I may be able to do a fall river cruise, so the money I save will be well used! :) :)

Looking at August's totals it is without a doubt that I am lacking endurance due to the dearth of endurance miles put in. Feel like I may have squandered time that I could have build low-impact endurance through bike + swim opportunities that I will not have as readily available when I get back to travel next Tuesday.

Perhaps I can look in to Masters in DC and either ride my bike from the apartment or job there/back with my swim gear in a backpack.

Either way, I am enjoying tinkering with the tenets of endurance training. Probably need a little greater understanding of the Crossfit Endurance principles to incorporate in to the training as they still are pretty foreign concepts for an old school LSD/HR trainer ...

Easy and short run this morning.  First Wednesday in a few weeks without back issues.  No bike this week, coincidence? 
Thinking of streaking my way to the Dopey challenge, sorry ladies, clothes are staying on! But I figure what better way to prepare for 4 straight days of racing than running everyday?  Hmmm, need to think through this for a bit.  But, today was 7th day in a row I think!

Legs, back and shoulders plus some ITB PT.

Since I was here last in early 2013 I think it was, life has calmed down. The last year or so has been drama-free. However, I have gained upwards of 45 pounds and become essentially sedentary, unless one counts fiddling (I don't). I had to buy all new clothes. It's ridiculous. Time to get back into shape.

I figure here is as good a place as any to get started. I don't know if I will do another triathlon someday or what, but I've got to get moving again.

Man, I forgot how to do so much here. I seem to be unable to change my profile picture. And I also don't have the markup buttons here for font, color, etc.

Do they still have them here?

Oh, and I am staying the f*** away from CoJ.

Install self study for a type of fridge today for work and not a long work day, which is nice. A full moon makes for an interesting day

Yesterday, we got an email regarding our preferred hours and schedule. Fingers crossed that it works out.

Tonight, open houses for schools and to see a friend I haven't seen in awhile. Should be a good night.

This is a down week for me. Will be out at the beach with the family this weekend, then picking it up next week again. No plan to reduce volume for the WL Half next Saturday, so I may be racing tired. Wah.

I have a new friend that lives near me that will run with me armed with Petzl's! I am SO excited about this and I think she is pretty happy too. She moved here from Maryland and is a much stronger runner than I am at this time - but she ran slow with me today. Actually she made me run faster than I wanted to.

I wish the LTF club was closer. Seems silly to drive 20 - 25 minutes there and back for a 2500 swim - but I did.

Feeling OK about the swim. May be able to do OK on the bike. Worried about the run and my knee. Icing now and trying to be due diligent.

I signed up for Austin 70.3 officially yesterday. So it is ON! Let the serious training begin!

I will get in a quick ride on the tri bike this morning, then a bit of pool time. But first it's time for what everyone is waiting for, BIP Recap Time!!!!
So we are sneaking up on the season finale and I have lost any appearance that I care anymore.  To the point that we were unable to come up with anything original for the drinking game by the time Sunday night rolled around. So, in an act of total desperation, we decided that anytime a crab appeared on the screen, or a contestant(?) used the word connection, that we would take a drink.  It's a short show, how bad could it possibly be?  I may have to reconsider organ donation, as I'm not sure my liver will ever be the same.  On to the show.  Sunday was more of the S&J "drama" during which it solidified the fact that neither of them will be joining Mensa anytime soon. As well, I'm not sure he'll ever find his self esteem.  I think it's in a box on Chris Harrison's shelf at home next to Sam's integr[...]
