We spent the evening in the ER with my Mom. She had a dehydration induced TIA. No damage and we were home bu 11. Damn scary, though.

Going to get a short run this morning, then going out to my sister's place to help her with one of her horses. Then probably have to go to the office for a couple of hours to get a jump on Monday's deadline. Ugh...

Arrived home from run to find hubby watching some food documentary and HE starts telling ME with a sense of urgency that we need to switch to a plant based died.  Ya right!  I asked him if he was prepared to give up korean ribs.  PAUSE.  My husband is a total carnivore.  I suggested he try shifting more towards a whole foods diet and that he should follow my lead and just eat what I prep.  Often I'll make a vegetarian dish and throw meat on for him.  I suggested he just cut back - reserve it for dinner only and eat small portions of REALLY good meat.  He seems game.  We'll see.... My kid seems off meat lately so I don't there there will be an issue there at all.  I think veganism is now trendy amongst teens.

Sufferfest out there 3.2K climbing. I really had nothing left on the last four miles. Glad Q and Erin pulled me to finish the day strong. Nutrition was spot on--got into my system all of the calories I needed.

Crappy week at work--too much work--too much stress.
Calories 1240 or 306 per hour.

I've been wanting a little run all week....didn't feel like the sogginess of most of the week though and I'm avoiding the treadmill for running.....So, today is a gorgeous sunny day and I went out.  That was a straight through run.  No issues with my achilles, though my knees weren't too sure about it.  Not enough to make it miserable, but enough to remind me that they no longer enjoy this sport.  It was warmer and more humid than I thought, so I think that's why the HR was as high as it was....that and I haven't done any consistent running in months....
On the remainder of my agenda today:  Chisel Balance.**done  Grocery shopping.**done  Food prep.**done  Cleaning **done.
While I was at Kroger Thing One cleaned the living room....Got home and put everything away --only to pull half of it out for food prep. BUT, I was able to prep all my veggies for various dinners this week so there will be less fuss making dinner.  I made up a chicke[...]

Other than some soreness in my toe walking around at the end of a VERY active day, I'm finally fully healthy (knock virtual wood).

I'm tapering to the point of being worrisome!  Had planned to work with my clients and then go for my long run.  But then they decided they wanted to do a deal and so I've been jumping through hoops all day to prep and at the last minute they decided to hold off and wait until Tuesday.  I ended up skipping a bunch of meals and now don't feel I have enough energy to run and I can't do the long trail run as it'll be dark within the hour.  Tomorrow I'm meeting clients in Grimsby - of course mid day - so not enough time to do the run before and I have to meet other clients when I get back to sign some paperwork.  Having two jobs is tiring but given my recent disappointments in my regular job I'm not willing to give up this right now...  I can't believe I might not get one more hilly longish run in before race day eek!!

Hey all. I am getting my mojo back. It has been out wandering un-attended and lost.  I have been working on some projects, at least: Barn quilts. The first two are done and installed. Three more are in the works, then three more to do. We are putting them on all of the cottages.
 
Thanks for all the thoughts. It really helps :) :) :)

Short bike ride this morning, just spinning this out. Then gear stop off (bike, swim-to-bike, bike-to-run bags).

After that, Kevin and I went to the Inclined rail up yo Lookout Mountain and we went to the national park there as well. We had lunch and then spent the afternoon hanging out in the room, early dinner at Mellow Mushroom, recheck the pre/post race bag, nutrition, and bike special needs bags for the morning. Hydrated (yes, with actual water). It's gonna be a hot one tomorrow! Current predicted high is 94 (Accuweather) or 95 (weather.com).

(photos on Instagram, will re post here next week)
