Practice swim for next weeks race (Reston Triathlon) @ Lake Audobon.  Not a particularly good swim.  Followed by two loops of the bike course.  Felt pretty good the first loop and then pretty tired the second loop.  Probably due to Friday's bike & SUP activities and yesterday's shop ride.

Sitting at home waiting for it to warm up to at least 50 so I can get the rest of my long tin mileage in. Then, of course, it starts to pour rain. It's looking treadmilly, but just 13 miles left at least.

Disappointed in myself for being 6.2 miles short for the week, but kind of proud too in that I RAN EVERY DAY this week. Haven't done that in months (or longer). It's been insanely slow goin', but my quads tell me they're fairly certain they ran about 20 miles today. Probably not such a bad first week back considering.

Headache again. We need to clean the house then we're off to St. Louis for my nephews bday. Not feeling good enough to workout right now. Not really sure how I am going to drive all that way unless this headache goes away!!!
Fun visiting with my BIL's family at the bday party. DH did not go so I had to drive home. Had 2 cups of coffee after dinner to keep me awake since I get sleepy driving in the middle of day, much less at 9:00 in the evening. Now I am wired!!!

I just ordered a fatbike!! I'm suddenly not dreading winter as much! I actually bundled up a lot and rode when the trails were semi-dry last winter, but wished I could still get out there when we had fresh snow. I was debating whether I really need another bike, but Nate actually convinced me that it was worth the $ for me to get a cheapo fatbike so I can tool around out there when it snows. Bikesdirect started making fatties this year and they're essentially knockoffs of the name brand bikes, and since there's no suspension I'm not all that worried about who makes it. So, I've got one on order - $699 - can't beat that. Wanted to save the rest of my money for my real bike.

I had a dream last night that it was the morning of my studio workshop and everyone was arriving, and I was totally unprepared. The basement was totally unfinished, there was a pile of hay (like for horses???) in the middle of my studio, I was scrambling around the house trying to find chairs, and I had no eas[...]

Working a lot today. This is my first big retransmission agreement cycle at work (one of these things) and I am leading the efforts for all of our regions' affected markets (in 4 states). So pulling together everyone from public affairs, communications, government relations, marketing, engineering, customer care, social care, business accounts, media accounts, etc. - and going through check-lists to make sure everyone knows what to do if the agreement expires tonight and we will potentially cut programming (they call it "going dark"). Two months ago, this was all Greek to me, but now I am being told I sound like a real expert, reporting out to our national office and leading regional calls. SUCH an interesting topic and learning experience. And only a bit stressful :)

August's totals
Swim: 13h 18m 09s - 44150 Yd
Bike: 42h 28m 45s - 848.18 Mi
Run: 33h 53m 43s - 247.81 Mi



July's totals
Swim: 14h 02m 32s - 40025 Yd
Bike: 46h 37m 30s - 934.56 Mi
Run: 37h 20m 01s - 264.42 Mi

Lost a bit of ground in bike and run due to the race, new Haus sessions, and mini taper. Give or take, I achieved my volume goals with regards to the above monthly totals. The quality has increased. With the quality has come a couple few duds. HIM should be a solid day but the course will be rough so my time may be slowed. I should be good to go though. At 140.6, I am feeling able to get the IM done in the general vicinity. I still feel a bit weak with regards the long swims and bricks. Time will tell about how the bike system and new run sessions have helped.

Rockfish Loop with Pete. The sun seemed so scorching hot that it baked the fields and gave off a steamy fragrance of flowers and cut hay in the air. It reminded me of my childhood when I spent hours in the 10 acres of fields and woods behind my house picking flowers and blackberries. I had that 70s song stuck in my head the entire ride, "Summer Breeze."
Afterwards, we took a nap on the couch, and then got my fall and Halloween decorations down from the attic.  Yes, I know it is a bit early, but we love Halloween!

I tried to run but my hip was sore so I gave it up.  Hip is a weird thing sometime it hurts a lot other times not at all.  Parents have gone home.  They are like an explosion in my house.  We went to brunch at a place near the wedding venue that I was considering for catering the rehearsal dinner but its probably too fancy although brunch was really good.  Then I drove them by the three hotel options I gave the people I invited.  The venue is really small and will only hold my wedding party.  There is another small hotel about 50 yards away that is a roof over your head but nothing super nice.  I offered to let 2 sets of aunts and uncles and another uncle stay at my place which is 12 miles from the venue.  Of course my NE relatives don't have a lot of money but I don't think its my responsibility to fly my guests down and pay for their rooms?  Is it?  How is it my problem to solve their logistics?  No one ever takes care of [...]
