Another night of being awake from about 3:30am, but that's okay because when I looked at the incision spot again this morning, it looked better!!! 
Also, I'm not feeling sick anymore - which I'm going to take as a really good sign that the infection is finally on its way out.  YAY!
I got to talk to my parents last night who are already in AZ for the winter and just forgot to tell me that they had left a week and a half ago, drove almost straight through, and have been basking in the sun while I've been waiting to hear from them that they made it in one piece.  Sheesh, parents these days!  Don't they know that I worry about them!!  
Going to try and walk/run after work today.  I know I can't put a helmet on my head yet so riding is out, and swimming would just be dumb (see, I CAN be smart!), so hopefully my neck won't still hurt with every step - but there's only one way to find out!  
In other news... We signed off on the "plot plan" fo[...]

I'm not sure what's up with Strava but when I pressed stop and save on this run the stopwatch said 20:43. Yet after it saved it said 19:25. Why is there a difference between elapsed time and moving time of over a minute when we didn't actually stop?

You're my compass when I'm lost, my anchor when I get tossed, and the right way when all I can do is wrong. -Eric Church
I bailed on today's run, but moved it to tomorrow morning. So, today marks the return of the MAMIL, as I should be able to get the bike out on the road for the first time in a while. I rode a short one last week and today should be a bit more. And then there will be a trip back in time as TW and I go to see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" on stage. There is a bit of trepidation to seeing this put on by the local community theatre company. It could go be awesome, ugly, or something in the middle I guess, so we'll simply go with the flow.

So, I didn't manage a workout yesterday, thinking I'd do yoga at bedtime, but that obviously didn't work out. I mean, how often do I actually workout after bedtime?? Almost never. Why do I always act like that's an option? 
I'm thinking about doing the Bailey Hundito next year (the 50 mile option of the Hundo race). I have a couple of friends who are thinking about it, the trails are great, it's close to home, and I'd love to do a longer race (longest this year was 25 miles). Only problem is time. 50 miles on a mountain bike is probably over 6 hours for me, which means some pretty decent training time. I'd have to be committed to putting in the time in the Spring since the race is in June. I'm tempted though. Now that the kids are in school 5 days a week, I wonder if I could make it work by taking one weekday every other week to do a super long ride, leaving weekends open for shorter rides and family stuff.
Aspen's got an early release today and it's parent-teacher confer[...]

Taking MIL to the doctor this morning. Not a lot else on the schedule. Need to get my car fixed - the door handle stopped working and whenever I get out, I have to open the window and open the door from the outside. Hoping its an easy fix for the body guy. Upper body is on the agenda for the gym today. I think the rain has finally stopped, so I may get outside and do some brush mowing.

Stats taken after workout on the trainer and before dinner, %water 69.2, muscle 38.4, bone 4.0. As planned, easy workout on the CT. Got everything done that I had to do but pack! That's in progress but it's going to a somewhat late evening unfortunately. Hopefully won't take me too long. One issue that's worrisome is that my left inside ankle is "uncomfortable" from last evening's treadmill session. Not painful, I'm just feeling like the tendon is pulling/separating from the ankle area. Will see about possibly getting tape from the Expo on Friday. I'll also be compressing it and probably putting pain cream on it. Just hope it holds

Tomorrow: Pick up Jon Ege and drive to race site. Might try to drive the bike course if we get there before it gets dark.

Fri: breakfast with the pros :), packet pickup, race prep

Sat: RACE!!

More from the race site.

No workout today.
Told PSR that I can't do it this year. Quitting. I'll sub and stay on until they find someone else but I just need some mental health time. I'm mentally drained after working with DD all day and don't have it in me to put up with nonsense, silliness and helplessness of 18 2nd graders.

We're also cutting back to just Thursdays for Toddler Gym starting in November. Only had one student yesterday again.

What a crummy run after a crummy day.  Work was hectic and I was trying to do about 10 things at once most of the day (with the occasional BT break to recover my sanity).  Tonight was supposed to be training club but that got cancelled so Joey told me to run 5 mi. and send him the time.  I obviously didn't manage that.  Then I was planning to meet up with the Denver chapter of Team RWB, which I've just joined, for their usual Wed. night workout.  I couldn't find them.  So much for that.  I just sent Joey my time for what I managed tonight as well as for last night's much better (albeit slower) run.  I also included a note asking about what I can expect from the training club.  Since all I've gotten so far is a t-shirt and a couple of basic group workouts per week, I'm not real keen on paying $40/month if this is all it's going to be.  While the social aspect is nice, I don't mind running by myself (I've been doing it since March) and [...]
