Stats taken after ride and before dinner, %water 68.9, muscle 38.2, bone 4.0 - WHOA! Okay, who forced those burgers, beer, and cake down my throat that an after work office picnic??!! Interestingly enough, I felt GREAT on the bike today and what an average speed for the 22 miles! Granted, the route is flat in many parts with some good downhills and straight sections. But, it has ups as well. I was just feeling pretty darn good and really cranking! Well, let's see if I can keep feeling this way on Sat. Bike worked well after those significant adjustments on Monday evening and it felt really nice to ride!

Tomorrow: Probably just an evening run on Ft D though I thought about doing some intervals on the track too. Pack for the race.

Friday: Leave for race site, packet pickup, drive bike course

Sat: RACE!

Sun: still thinking of doing a long brick with BT friend Chris sometime late morning/early afternoon.

Mon: rest

Woke up in the middle of the night & my stomach was not happy and it is carrying over to this morning. Going to try drinking some ginger tea. I want to try to ride today at the park since it looks like a nice day if Grace and I can get through her school work in time.
Never felt good all day but we had a good school day, I managed to cook a few things (cooking has taken a hit since Homeschool started), squeezed in the easy workout and had our first classroom night of PSR. 14 kids showed tonight, 18 are registered - mostly girls. How can they still be so helpless in 2nd grade :). What do I need, what should I do, can you help me, I need glue OMG too funny. I handed them a name tag and a marker ... "you want me to write my own name?" HA There are two of us teaching thank goodness!

Heading out to paint with Jane and Janet today, then Janet and I are going to go for a bike ride. I'm looking forward to getting out. After a crazy busy summer, I'm finding myself going a little stir crazy standing in my studio by myself all day - I'm not used to all the alone time! Maybe it's actually possible to become less introverted over time? Hehe... ;)
FOOD:
B - sauteed veggies and chicken, coffee x2
S - cherry larabar
L - luna bar (out painting - sort of a food planning fail, but needed to eat something before riding)
S - pc of cheddar cheese, coffee
D - chicken lettuce wraps (sauce tasted SO sweet - ugh), diet coke
Wasn't home all day, so nutrition wasn't great, but also not TOO awful.

Heading home today! I need to swim tonight.
The young lifeguard took a bit of my taper madness, travel weary bad attitude tonight.  They wont put the lap lanes in until lap swimming starts at 5, because the lesson instructors want the full time then the swim team coaches and swim lesson instructors for the 6:00 session want to kick us out or make us move lanes at 5:50 so they can start right at 6.  Pissed me off as they stopped me in the closing laps of an 800 tt. 
Good to be home though!

Just Enjoy the Moment

John texted me last night as I was leaving the gym.  Said he was going to call when he got back to his room from dinner.  I waited up.  BIG mistake.  At 11:30 he texted again saying he had just gotten back to his room.  Really?  I am going to bed, I waited up and now it is wayyyyy past my bedtime.
Might take the bike out for a little ride once the coffee wakes me up. ***Done, gorgeous day and nice ride.  Completely enjoyed it--with the exception of my keester in the saddle part.  Not loving my saddle.  And I suck at climbing, but that is cause of a lack of real bike riding for most of the year.  THAT will change next season!
Miss Thing called me yesterday.  She went to an open house to try and get transferred into the nursing program at Longwood.  The person leading the program was NOT in the least bit encouraging.  She was pretty upset.  I reminded her that we had talked about coming up with a Plan B all along[...]

Went to Lift, but found Shoulders, and Legs, and Abs to all be sore.
So packed it in after first 3 warm-up exercises. Will try again tomorrow if not sick- on Verge of a Cold and eating almost every 'Cold-Fighting Super Food' known- from Citrus to Dark Chocolate, to Garlic, to Oats, Red Pepper, Mushrooms, Dark Green Leafy's... you name it.
Daughter had Strep last week, Son had Coxsackie A (the worst 'basic-virus' I've seen a kid have- of course that's not life-threatening).
So Far, So Good... will try lifting tomorrow.
