Wow, I was in bed by 10:30 last night....and still could not pry my butt out of bed with my alarm clock.  It rained hard overnight too, we needed it to knock the darn pollen counts down.  
PiYo of some sort today--I keep messing up the calendar so I'm not sure I think I'll do core.  Drill Instructor tonight.
She said BRAC was okay but she liked Dinwiddie better.  BRAC has 3 or 4 different locations so she could potentially have to move to a new area with no support system if she were to go there cause they didn't say which one of their schools needed someonet.  I'm thinking Dinwiddie has an edge if they make an offer.

My training graph looks like a middle finger giving me a rude gesture. Must be a sign!

Finally have a training plan, or at least a framework of a training plan. 3x3 with a full off day on Mondays. Stretching to continue on all days. Running in the park whenever possible.
Possibility of a new mtb. I'm keeping my eyes open on Craigslist and such. Something lightly used would be best. Actually, best would be something given to me that is valued at over $10,000, but I'm pretty sure my sponsor list is too short for that at the moment. Guess I'll just keep on working.

Went and toured the Montessori school down the street this morning. I really liked it for Owen, think he would do well there - it's just better suited to his level of creativity and hands-on style. BUT, it's omg expensive. Like paying college tuition at age 6. We currently are able to afford it, but we're self-employed, what about a bad year? And then does Aspen still go to the public school where she is currently doing well, or do we switch her to be with bro ??? Will she hate us later for sending her brother to private school and her to public? Or is it worse to switch her away from all her buddies for no good reason? So many questions. 
Didn't manage a ride yesterday. I was planning to paint paint paint until I finished the piece I was working on, then do a ride at 2 before getting the kids. Of course, Aspen had a headache that wouldn't go away and after three calls from the nurse's office, I had to go pick her up at 2, right when I was about to ride. She came home and was [...]

Quite busy, so I'm doing this list style:
1. His interview went fine
2. My interview went really well, and they want me, and they offered me a job, but less money, more hours, and less benefits than current job. Boo!
3. Woke up feeling gross and icky, decided to try running this afternoon and skipping weights today.
4. Have begun trying out the Pomodoro Technique for time managment at work. I am getting more done, but spending far less time on BT/social media, etc. Probably for the best, but I miss my digital friends!

Patella tendon still a bit sore and I can feel the strain in right quad, so still taking it easy. Thinking about going for a walk with the club tonight, though.

My hip doesn't bother me at all, and doesn't feel weird anymore! What a nice feeling to start the day.

Today's workout, on paper, didn't look too daunting. But, I know how weak my cycling "skills" are. I have no clue about proper gearing. I was supposed to do my workout in the big ring, which is probably where I should race. I stink in the big ring. I'm a 90rpm cadence champ in the small ring and in the easier gears on the big. But, today's workout, I was lucky to even sniff 90rpm.

Effort was hard. I'm sure it will pay big dividends down the road. It is a very obvious reminder of how far I have to go.
