Got the dog groomed while I was at the pool. I found that kicking on my side seems much more effective than trying to kick on my back. About time to start getting ready and there's quite a bit of packing to do before we set out for Niagara Falls.

At this point, I am thankful that it is illegal to kill people.  Because from what I can tell, the IT department is in serious need of some readjustment!

So, I ran yesterday afternoon because I figured the Dirt Divas ride would get rained out. When I left my house in Evergreen, it was raining, so I figured I'd deliver kits to a couple of gals and have a drink. Got there and the sun was shining on Golden, and next thing I know I'm climbing up the 20% grade fire road to the top of the mountain. I was NOT expecting that after a run!! Ouch. My legs are worked today.
Bad news on the bike front. Not supposed to be here until the end of June. I'm honestly so pissed I don't know what to do. I could switch to a Pivot Mach 5.7, and have it in a week, but that's more of an all mountain/enduro bike than a XC bike. I would love the travel and it's a nice bike, but it's not a race bike, and I want all the advantage I can get on long climby CO race courses. I could switch to a 429, but they're also having issues stocking smalls in that model so no guarantees when I'd get it, and it has a bit less travel than I want. I could switch to another [...]

Oh where have I been - all over!  I spent the holiday weekend far from electronics in New Mexico.  It was a great trip although we didn't see too many snakes.  It was cold for snakes which makes me want to go back in July to see if I can turn up the heat loving nocturnal species.
Mills Canyon, NM - where I have been hiding:

Then I have been slammed at work and soccer tryouts after work.  Just crazy!  I ended my streak but it was intentional - I needed the rest.  I am not going to stop running and biking but I need to figure out a way to add some structure to it (maybe a training plan?).
I am flat out exhausted though.  I need to get better sleep at night but this week has been bad with stress.  Maybe tonight I can get in bed at 8pm and sleep until 5am.  I need it.

It is gonna be a long day training then driving home. Power outages and air conditioning going out kept me up most of the night. I turned the alarm off instead of doing a workout. Hopefully I'll get home before 9. Tomorrow is my day off though. Yay!

Project for Saturday, get the bike switched over to outside riding.  Since the bike was last ridden outside at IMCHOO it still has the brake pads on for the carbon wheels.

6:27am:  I'm a little sad to see the yellow square from yesterday; it would have been so easy to have a full month of peachy stuff!  Oh well, rather than regret the one day of rest, I'll take pride in the vast improvement in consistency.
And plus, dinner with my friend was awesome.  We hadn't seen each other in awhile and it was great to catch up!
I think I'd like to get out for a run-type thing this afternoon.  As much as running is uncomfortable and frustrating right now, I need to hold on to knowledge that once in better shape, running is something I love to do.  I've got to work through the hard to get to the good.

Should be a group ride tonight.
I need to take the new Cateye bike computer back to the store.  It went all the way through set up fine - I put it on my bike overnight.  On Sunday I went to ride and it is totally dead.
GF is going to go to the sprint triathlon on the 5th then we'll spend the rest of the weekend in the mountains.  FUN!
 
I really need to get in the pool and do some running.
