I'm going to swim tonight. I decided this while I was awake from 2 - 3 a.m. {but only till 3 a.m.! I took a swig of Z-Quill when I realized I was not falling back asleep. I feel so smart}. I am scared that my shoulder is going to hurt. And scared that I will get frustrated with the part of triathlon I love the most and that comes easiest to me. But I gotta try, I've gotta get back in there. My training plan starts next week and I have 2 swims a week on it. 
And then there's yoga. I think back to the time I was feeling and training at my best - and I was religiously doing a Monday night yoga class. Just checked the Y schedule and there's a 5:30 class downtown Monday nights that would be completely ideal.

My parents called last night. (It's like they kind of forget about me on and off.) Anyway, Dad announced that they'd put in for a transfer to a church in Missouri, Arkansas or eastern Oklahoma. The super illogical part is that the purported reason is to be nearer my Grandma in Winfield, KS so Mom could be there more quickly if needed, but any of those places would still be several hours away which kind of defeats the point. When I lived in the same town I'd go weeks without seeing them, but I guess it makes a good official excuse for their overseer. They seem to really think they'll be going soon too as they had my sister reschedule her vacation to Winfield for the week of Easter since Mom wouldn't want to go with her right after starting at a new church and (although a legal adult of 37) she's too scared to go alone. I'm certain my sister will move with them and probably my brother, SIL and niece since they are all still in the same house with[...]

Nate's tied up the next couple days with his conference, so I'm hanging with the kids. Pretty much chilling at the pool, and heading out for meals since the hotel restaurants are stupid expensive (I just paid $9 for a cup of plain coffee in the Cafe!). I'll try to sneak away for a quick bike ride today or tomorrow. Wish I had my foam roller - legs are still tight from my epic ride on Tuesday!
Need to set up my computer and do some work at some point - I'm behind on emails and phone calls!

Busy weekend ahead. Going camping with my oldest Cubscout, then have two soccer games tomorrow, then headed to Atl to sell my house, which we've been renting. I'm also changing jobs, so preparations/hand offs are full steam ahead. Man, this is the busiest start to the year that I can remember.

Friday.
Early morning rain gave me an excuse for not running this morning,  That plus I really didn't feet like it.
Been an up and down week.
Found out I got into the Marine Corps Marathon via the lottery, but now have to manuever through some family resistance to do it.  
On Tuesday got diagnosed with Dupuytren's Contracture, an incurable, genetic disease that reasults in deformaties in the hand and fingers.  Can't do anything about it, but still adjusting my mindset about learning to live with it.  Fortunately not life-threatening, just an inconvenience/annoyance.  Actually, it's been interesting researching it.  I always like learning new stuff, but maybe not under these circumstances.
Also got kicked to the curb by someone I was once very close to, or at least I thought I was.  One thing to end a relationship, quite another to rub someone's face in it. Guess I'll eventually get over that too event[...]

Hip was feeling a little less cranky when I first got up this morning, and then the spin class seemed to help loosen it up a little more.
TGIF!  This felt like a long and tiring week.

I didn't bring the charger for my Garmin and it finally ran out of juice, so the time is a bit of an estimate.  I ran the same route as Wednesday, so the distance is pretty close.
TGIF!!

After 2 days of on and off rain showers, DH has looked at the yard and admitted we need to hire a professional. He is tired of trying to mess with it and now the kids swingset area is flooded. He wants to wait until the fence is put in since there will be lots of dirt to move around again from digging the post holes.
In other news, someone posted on our local cycling group that there will be a local bicycle race memorial weekend. Interesting. 25 miles but I don't know any other details. The HIM is June 7th if I get myself in gear to race and the weather is decent.
My foot is feeling really really good. No pain at all walking around. I can get out of bed barefoot with no pain. I can walk around all day with no pain. I can feel the irritated spot when I stretch really deep. I'm not sure where to go from here. It is such a relief to not have pain  every day I think I may just try to enjoy that for a while! I've had this before where meds did not help  and [...]
