A new path

Got sick yesterday, my stomach was most upset and I had horrible stomach/intestinal pain. I was scared it was the stomach bug that's going around, but I'm fine this morning. Whew. Don't know what I ate that was the culprit, but oh well. Glad it's gone.

My bike taking a rest on the fun, flat part at the top of Dedisse (wow, my bike is starting to look pretty old-school): 
Ohmygosh it is BEAUTIFUL out there today!! I've got to ride my mountain bike! I'm feeling badly about my tech skills right now, so I will probably force myself to go ride some rocks down in Dedisse. I've been putting in a lot of vertical lately, but all on smooth trails, which doesn't really help with techy stuff. 
Heading down to the Broadmoor on Thursday for a couple of nights. Nate is on the board of a credit union and they send him to training classes at fancy places all the time. I figure since this one is close and the Broadmoor is supposedly beautiful, I will tag along and ride my bike while he is in boring finance meetings all day. My friend Shelby is coming too (Nate got her husband on the board too), so we're going to get the cheapest treatment at the spa and just hang out there all afternoon one day. Should be nice.
In other news, feeling[...]

8:02 AM: I didn't swim. That is all. 
12:23 PM: Knee feels great. Swelling is going down. A mystery. But I'll take it! Advil ingestion = 0.
In the Photo Flipper right now is a photo of me riding a rented mule.

Enjoy.

7:00am:  Well, the headache that dogged me from Sunday night seems to be gone -- or at least giving me a break.  Was slightly better last night, but then woke up around 3am with it raging again.  Took meds and woke up headache-free, but absolutely exhausted... a trade-off that I'll take.
Clarke seems to be doing a little better today, putting some weight on the bum leg and not looking quite as pathetic as he had been.  He was restless last night, though, barging in and out of my room several times (and with a cone on, it's not like he's quiet about it... he hasn't seemed to completely figure out how not to bash into things with it yet), but I suppose I'll take that over him not wanting to move.
If the headache stays away, training has GOT to happen this afternoon.

Never, never, never quit

Dragging today. Brian and I went to a golf reception event thing at the country club last night and while we weren't out late, I drank a bunch of wine and am feeling it today. The event was fun though, we hung out with Brian's old boss and her husband, and the pro golfer that their company sponsors, and a bunch of Very Important other People whose names and titles I won't ever remember. Brian even made a speech - he did great.
I need to remember that even though I ask what to wear, I just always need to step it up one notch at the country club. Brian said it's "super casual" and he was wearing jeans and a polo shirt. I wore skinny jeans, heels, a nice blouse and a statement necklace - and was SO under dressed. Hate that. Brian laughed off his jeans, but I think guys can do that. I should have just kept on my work clothes (same everything except a pencil skirt instead of the jeans). It was FINE, but for some reason I am hyper tuned in to dressing appropriately.

Not a lot of excuse for today... I worked 12 hours and had an ear ache all day.  When I got home, all I wanted to do was rest.  I should have still gotten a bike in.  Good thing it is a recovery week.

Quite windy and chilly for the run. Took Cath on my favorite bit of Troy run which fit into our schedule perfectly. She of course took off during the repeats....I see her turn the wrong way and disappear around a corner...I'm thinking....what do I do??? I can't catch her! She just ran in a little circle knowing I was behind her. Phew!!! Love seeing her do her thing and disappear before my eyes!

Then we swam. Post run swims can be tough on the cramping side of things. I'd taken a salt tab pre run and drank gatorade during, and was mindful not to push off too hard. Today, cramps avoided. Yay. My shoulders and lats were grumpy in the wu after yesterday's faster swimming, but ok after the wu. Predictably, I fell apart about half way through the workout. Still, not too horrible. Lessons start this Sunday with the crew. I will miss the second one, but I will to get a few more things to focus on for through IMMT.

Then it was to AA to meet the girl for dinner and her last[...]

Had a doctor's appointment to get some prescriptions re-filled and figured that I'd also get the cyst on the back of my neck looked at and talk about the persistent cough that I've had for 4 years... but apparently I can only ask the doctor about 1 thing at a time otherwise insurance most-likely wouldn't pay for the other issues to be addressed, so now I need to make at least 2 more appointments...  because that makes a lot of sense.  However, the doctor was really nice, very thorough and asked a LOT of questions about my history, etc. so I felt really comfortable with her and will be fine with coming back to her... and she told me that I don't look at ALL like my age so even if she was lying, total bonus[...]
