Nothing today. I mean, I totally have to stretch and roll out, but no running. I have a 5 mile run scheduled tomorrow, but I think I'm gonna skip it and let my knee chill out a bit. I'll run 3 or 4 on Saturday, hopefully in Boston. 
Did laundry this morning. Gave the keys to the catsitter. The weather looks potentially amazing for Monday, though a smidge warm. Don't obsess. Don't obsess. Don't obsess.
You will not miss me on the course. I intend to be quite colorful.

My is so sore today. I think that has to be a first from yoga - must have been a good video.
Off to ride my bike in a bit. This weekend is going to be stupid busy with Easter stuff, so I figure I should ride while I can.

since this year is pretty much full - plus i want to sell my house and move and i do wonder what if i sell it and when in the world would i have time to move!!! ha
I was looking at some runs for next year with scenery that would even compare to what I got to see at zion and found the antelope island run in march.....nothing close to zion but i love the buffalo so that would be cool cause they are all over the course. Think I will do it as the 50 miler though and get Heather to come do it as her first 50 miler also.,,, only 5 hours from Amber so she will come play too!! Then was looking at javelina for a fall 100 and amber suggested the Teton/yellowstone 100 and that looks amazing beautiful!! Its end of sept this year so prolly the same period next year....says road race so if i see its gravel rather then concrete that the one and will get to do with amber also!! Dont think my knee could handle 100 miles of ALL concrete so will read some reports etc. 
Gonna take a walk when it[...]

Feels like I had a breakthrough session in the pool today. I really felt as though I was skimming through the water. Coach told me everything looked really good today, too. I need to build on this.

Long run this evening. Family is out of town for spring break, but are coming back late tonight.

10:45 AM: Lifting today. Not sure what. Probably some legs and corework. Will resurrect an old Ronsky workout.
12:08 PM: My "Let Her Go" co-worker has been playing melancholy music all morning, culminating in the pièce de résistance: LET HER GO... as we speak. I peeked over the wall to see if he's crying. He says he's alright, but this music is throwing me into a depression myself!
 

Throwback Thursday in the photo flipper... me and my pal Dara, October 2000. We were in the hallway of our friend Kim's basement. It was partially finished. Like drywall only...perfect place to have a party!

Thursday brick. indoors.  had serious thoughts of bundling up and riding outside, but i just couldn't make that leap.  legs are tired, though they worked pretty hard on the bike.  Second half of the bike was all over 130 hr.  just took about 15 minutes to get it up to 120.  Run was fine.  legs felt fine. rest of the body was wiped.
Will try to get yesterday's swim in sometime today.  Friends called to meet after work yesterday, so that happened instead of the swim.
swim is done. not quite the speed of Tuesday's but a good swim.  probably could have a been a bit stronger on the 100's.

Went home, comfy clothes on, broccoli/cheese soup from the market up the street and NCIS/NCIS LA and Real Housewives of the OC. In bed about 9 and started a jigsaw puzzle on the ipad. No stress, no worrying... Didn't sleep worth a dang and woke up feeling like I haven't slept at all.

Supervisor brought in sugary cinnamon rolls from a local bread shop. He does this every Thursday. I have been here for almost 4 months and I have yet to touch them even though he makes sure that I know about then each Thursday. Bring on the black berries. :)

Remembered to ice my knee last night, but knee pretty sore today.  Forgot aspercream last night.
 It appears that walking around all day and sitting on airplanes may not be good for the recovery.  Oh well, it was sure good yesterday, and the timing was good too.
 

added leg raises and toe raises with bands

Positives for the day:
The science lesson for today was making egg salad.  That included peeling eggs, cutting them, adding mayo, mustard and relish.  They enjoyed cutting and mixing and tasting the salad BUT REALLY LIKED THE HARD BOILED EGGS!!!
I got up in time to get Trevor to work at 6 am without him having to come in and remind me
I am healthy 
My co-workers make me laugh EVERY DAY

Don't know what the deal is, but I guess can be glad to not have to work today. I'm somewhere between nauseous and dizzy with a headache thrown in. Not looking to be a productive day around here.

Aaaah - my fourth favourite day of the week.  FRIDAY EVE!!! 
Last night I slept like a ROCK, and it was fan-freakin'-tastic!!  Sleeping pills can be wonderful things.  
Today = an hour run on the schedule and then trying to get the weekend packing figured out as *fingers crossed* I'll be heading out to Laura's again on Friday to ride on Saturday morning, then home on the 12pm train which *should* get in around 1:30, then hurry my butt home to change/grab other (hopefully packed) bag to get on another train out to Flossmoor to go see Crowny and his awesome wife Bether for a night of Captain America, food, drinks and good times.  
WOOOT!!
